When circumstances seem beyond comprehension, when what you thought was the worst that could ever happen actually turned out to be the best part of your week, I encourage you–do not despair.
We are never alone in our suffering. God is here. He knows heartache, tragedy, and what it feels like to suffer loss. He knows the agony of pain, indignation, and that feeling of despair which causes one to choke.
God knows the negativity that feelings and emotions, sent by satan, try to elicit, so He sent positivity, the Holy Spirit, to tug at our hearts and fortify our minds.
God does this, America, to remind us that He is bigger than any situation.
All glory and power to the true ruler of heaven and earth!
Isaiah 40:21-23 Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
Appalling circumstances do come, but our LORD is the everlasting strength through it all. Turn your face directly to Him, America, not to government. Ask God for His help, His guidance, His mercy and grace, that He may do His powerful works through a perfect miracle or though others on the ground; however He chooses at the time He chooses.
Isaiah 40:28-31 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
The United States of America did not create our own strength. No nation births itself; we were born of God. Dedicated to His great word from the very beginning of our existence. On November 11, 1620 the Mayflower Compact was signed by 41 men. Their signatures, prominently displayed on this document, are evidence our forefathers were preparing for future troubles.
Our forefathers knew their only hope for establishing a new country was through Him who placed the moon and stars.
Psalm 8:3-4 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
Is it any wonder the Mayflower Compact’s first sentence is, “In the name of God, Amen.“? In the name of, means for the sake of or by the authority of. Greek Old Testament translates Amen as “so be it”. The English Bible translates as “verily” or “truly.”
“In the name of God, Amen.” For the sake of and by the authority of God, so be it. These new settlers, in this about to be birthed country, were giving all they hoped this land would become, to the God–before the land actually became.
Why did they do it? Because they had faith in the power of God.
Romans 11:33-36 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?” For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
America, God is bigger than all our problems. I encourage you to pray, “In the name of God, Amen.“, over our country. Acknowledge His power, submit to His authority, humbly ask forgiveness for our sin, and have faith as the men of the Mayflower Compact, “For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.”
ARE YOU A FOLLOWER OF JESUS?
If you’re not certain you’ve ever invited Jesus into your heart, now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com. Through Jesus you will receive the hope that He alone offers.
“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
