Christian Voters, Suit-Up In God’s Armor

Christian voters suit-up in God's armor.

Election Day is November 8.

Are we ready to win back America? I know we have been in election battle mode for over a year now. Evil has viciously been pitting candidate against candidate, family against family, and friend against friend.

These past months have been tiresome as Christians maneuver to avoid the slings and arrows of satan’s struggle for power. But Christians, we are not called to maneuver, or to navigate or to retreat when it comes to confronting evil. We are called to do just the opposite. Continue reading

In God We Trust

In honor of the 60th Anniversary of In God We Trust, 1956-2016. Because we are one nation under God, here is a repost of the history of our beloved motto.

In God we trust

Belief in God is in our national history.

President Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time” and asked “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are of God?” 

The need for our country to continually acknowledge these liberties from God, is established in our national motto.

“In God We Trust” – four words establishing our nation’s motto. History reveals it was: Continue reading

7 Bible Verses About Patience

7 Bible verses about patience

 With prayer and patience, America will be great again.

Last week’s post, God, America Is Calling You By Name,  shared how Jeremiah, David, Moses and Jonah  were all saved when they called on the name of the Lord. Each story exemplifies to Americans we too, can call on the name of the LORD to help us; to redeem our spiraling country.

You may say, “Is it possible for God to work magic on America in the blink of an eye?”  The answer is anytime He wants to, God creates miracles. Continue reading

God, America Is Calling You By Name

God, America is calling You by name

Since the formation of America God has always gone before us, stood beside us and protected our back. Sadly,  just like nations of old in the Bible, America often gets prideful and offers God the cold shoulder. We stop turning to Him, thinking we know better than He does in regards to living.

But a short tally of our “living” seems to indicate an immediate need to call on Him by name: Continue reading

God – My Zeroth Priority

God my zeroth priority

I’ll shout it from the rooftops – “God is zeroth to me!”

If I called my best friend zeroth she might think it was an insult – demeaning and abusive language (she would actually think I was being silly and making up a word but go with me on this). The point is most people do not know what zeroth means. I had never heard of the word until last week when I was googling more attribute words for God that start with the letter Z. Continue reading

7 Reasons To Respect God’s Name

7 reasons to respect God's name

Just like you desire respect from others for the lifetime of positive actions or achievements you make, God desires respect because of all that He is. With NFL players making choices to not stand for our national anthem, their negative actions may not bring them the respect they yearn for, due to their lack of understanding the significance of their action.

However, God’s being far outreaches the capability of our mental capacity for understanding, whether we are an NFL player or one of the five smartest people in history (Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Terence Tao, Stephen Hawking, Nikola Tesla). Perceptive brains (nor inanimate footballs) make the man – God does!   Continue reading

The Gospel Is For Everyone!

The Gospel is for everyone

Peter, one of the original Twelve Disciples of Christ preached boldly after the resurrection. The book of Acts tells us he was the first to preach to the Gentiles. Among those Gentiles was a wealthy military man named Cornelius who was “righteous, God-fearing and respected by the Jewish people.” Cornelius “prayed to God regularly” and sought God in his life.

We know God knew Cornelius because God called him by name – “Cornelius!”.  God told Cornelius to summons Peter and God told Peter to go to Cornelius’ house.  Continue reading

Pray For This Election

Pray for this election

Prayer Changes Things – So Pray Often And With Confidence.

God has a plan for our country. But He likes hearing our input! The Bible tells us we are to be in constant communication with God-

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Just like your best friend loves to hear how you are doing and what your needs are, God, though omniscient in His eternal loving manner, still desires us to tell Him about our lives. This includes being thankful in all things while presenting our wants and concerns.

During this election season the need for Christians to follow God’s will of prayer is crucial. Continue reading

Our world countries just completed the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.  Their camaraderie inspired me to reach out to Lift Him Up readers (representing over 100 countries) and ask them to share the eternal importance of never momentarily taking our Lord’s name in vain.
