AMERICA – Be Blessed

The Bible offers many verses telling us how/who the LORD blesses. America, why are we not listening to Him? I want to be blessed. I want my country to be blessed. Don’t you as a nation want blessings as well…to be prosperous, at peace, in love with our fellow man, and most importantly forgiven?

Blessings from God are receivable, America. Overwhelming blessings to enable us to stay strong and prosper. But blessings only occur if we delight not in ourselves, not in vain might, and definitely not in false gods. Blessings come from following the law of LORD.

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

AMERICA – Praise The LORD!

God, the provider of all things, He alone is worthy to be praised!

Isaiah 12:4-6 In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Our creator and redeemer, God is glorious.

It was Jesus who proclaimed, as He entered Jerusalem the week before His crucifixion, if mankind doesn’t shout His praises then earth itself will:

AMERICA – God’s Presence Changes All Things

God’s presence is power. America, once our nation understands God’s power, once we “get it”, there will be no force from earth, or below earth, strong enough to defeat us. Understanding God’s power–acknowledging His authority over our prideful ways–is how we will rise above the chaotic state our nation faces. 

Our citizens suffer fear from false teachings, depression from disease, and helplessness from hate. Many feel scared from previous scars. God did not create us to withdraw; to dread getting out of bed each morning.

I challenge you–call on God’s presence–for yourself personally and for our nation. Let us invite God’s presence to change things.

AMERICA – Pray Together For Our Nation @ 9 PM EST Every Night

There is a grass roots prayer effort happening across our country, reportedly inspired from the efforts of an advisor to Prime Minister Winston Churchill during WWII.

W. Tudor Pole, an English author, was that advisor to Churchill. It was Pole’s idea to encourage Britain, during that difficult time, to pray for the safety of England, its people, and peace, each night. The chosen time was at 9 PM during the chiming of Big Ben, which took about one minute. 

Churchill supported the idea,  along with King George VI, his Parliamentary Cabinet, and their country’s citizens who believed in the power prayer. What a beautiful testament to faith in God.

America, let us as believers, duplicate Pole’s idea. Let us unite together for our nation by corporately praying each night for one minute.

AMERICA – Jesus Did The Hard Work

America, we are loosing sight of Jesus. We are loosing sight of the way, the truth and the light; the only one able to walk us through the suffering our citizens are currently enduring. The only one who truly knows suffering because He alone suffered all pain before us.

There are three basic categories of suffering: emotional, physical, and spiritual–each causing unbearable pain to the human heart, body, and spirit.

Thankfully, because of Jesus, our country has the choice to not have to endure hardships alone. We have the choice to be blessed with the savior of the world’s authority. We have the choice because Jesus took on our burden of suffering at the cross, and all He asks in return is that we believe in what He did for us.

AMERICA – God Is Bigger Than Anything

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.

AMERICA – God Is Making A Way

Though at times we feel the government, doctors, family, and yes even the church makes life difficult, we must remember God is always here. He never forsakes us. God is bigger than all things combined; His plan is perfect.

Remember how God made a way for His beloved Jewish people again and again, despite their continual failing to trust? They grumbled while being lead from slavery, yet God made a way. They grumbled about overtaking the new land God already promised as theirs, yet He made a way.

Many times God’s people gave up hope because they could not see His holy plan, yet God continued His perfect plan, remaining beside them, bringing them through very hard times.

America, do you think we are following the grumbling footsteps of Israel?

AMERICA – Declare God’s Worth

God alone is worthy of all praise. He is God, majestic and mighty. Like everything else, America’s days were created by Him before our nation came into being. God has a perfect plan for America, surrounded in love, detailed and intertwined through its hardworking citizens. Regardless we accept His plan or not, God is worthy of all praise.

Acceptance to the plan means obedience. Obedience may sometimes be hard, but God is very worthy because He is also very good. For every blessing God has already bestowed upon America (Can they even be counted?), we gain confidence He is faithful to do it again.

Americans should be like the prophet Jeremiah:

Speak out and clearly declare God’s worth to our nation.

AMERICA – Respect God’s Name

Just as you desire respect from others for your positive actions and achievements, God desires respect from us for all that He is. As a nation, America has a history of respecting God’s name. In fact our country was founded on God’s name.

But slowly, along America’s short path through history, our government and many private citizens have chosen to disrespect God. We’ve ignored, tossed aside, and preached outright lies on the meaning of His word.

The Lord’s third commandment proclaims we are to keep His name holy. You may be wondering, “Why is respect so important?”

Read seven reasons (of many) to help you understand the need to respect God’s name.
