AMERICA – God Gives Blessings In Disguise

Christians–we believe in God’s blessings. Early Christians believed, Christians in this age believe, and true future Christians will believe. Unbelievers have their doubts about blessings. They may even ask, “Why believe in blessings?”

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Christians believe in God’s blessings because we believe in God’s word. His word is divine, supreme; it reigns above all, is vast and true. The Bible gives knowledge of God. His word changes lives from ordinary to blessed.

Sometimes, I go to the Bible for specific answers to questions I have right now. I usually find my blessing when God shows me insight. Then there are times I stumble upon a particular verse. A verse I wasn’t searching for, but happened to read and find understanding to separate situation I may be confused about. Biblical insight is a blessing.

AMERICA – Pray The Lord’s Prayer

If you are at a loss for words when coming before God for yourself, your family, job, government, or church (whatever your need may be), try praying the prayer Jesus taught His disciples.

Before sharing His example of prayer, what we now call The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus first explained to His followers the importance of praying in a manner that is pleasing to God.

Matthew 6:5-13 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.

Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

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 – 5 Bible Verses God Cares For You

Do you feel life is a burden and not a pleasure? Are family, friends, work, and even your government not giviing you the delight or peace of mind and protection that you believe they should offer? I’ve felt that way before. I’ve felt let down and that personal and social circumstances are out of control.

The good news is, we don’t have to feel that way. God did not create us to be in distress. He creates through His love; giving ability to us to receive His love.

When you love something, you don’t turn your back on it. You nurture it. You remain close, never abandoning your creation. You draw near and care for it.

God Bless America

In His omniscient, all-knowing power (Psalm 139:1-24), God knew the problems citizens of a nation would face. In accordance with His all-loving nature, God gave instruction on how to live with justice for all.

Deuteronomy 16:18-20 Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Please, take this opportunity to ask God to change negative hearts of all leaders corrupting our nation; that those leaders may humble themselves, see their corruption, then take steps to correct any deceit. Pray these leaders may decide to fully accept and invite Jesus into their lives as their Lord and savior.

Also pray for any specific law for justice you believe needs to be passed, or any injustice you believe needs corrected in America.

God desires us to rely on His glory to save us, not ourselves. 

Humbleness pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of His truth.


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!”

AMERICA – 7 Bible Verses God Pursues Us

Yes, God does pursue us. He created us because He wants to have a relationship with us. As mankind grew in numbers and expanded well beyond the Garden of Eden, we must still remember we were not created simply to accomplish great things and personally prosper. God creates us for His glory.

God creates us to praise and rely on Him for health, protection, understanding…for all things great and small relative to our lives. He creates us because He loves us just as He loved Adam and Eve.

And just as God never hid from the two people He first created, God never hides from the nations that grew from them. The Bible tells us it was man and women who hid from God after they ate the fruit He told them not to eat. But God went looking for them:

AMERICA – Jesus Is The Way, The Truth, and The Light

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

America, if we want to stay right with God, Jesus tells us He is the only way to having a personal relationship with the Father. In fact by His stating “I am,” Jesus is revealing His holy identity.

The phrase “I AM,” makes it clear to all that Jesus is claiming to be more than a rabbi or prophet; Jesus was claiming to be the Messiah—God come to earth as man.

America, if we want a closer relationship with God, if we truly desire to know Him better and Him to know us, we need a relationship with Jesus Christ.

AMERICA – 5 Verses On The Importance Of Asking God’s Forgiveness

The Bible tells us confession to God is the way to forgiveness and forgiveness means our sins are gone. Yep, the Bible tells us God not only forgives, He also forgets.

Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.

This assurance of God’s forgiveness and the additional blessing that He also forgets our sin means we walk away with a clean slate. It’s as if we never sinned. What an undeserving gift from a loving Father to individual Christians and to America as a whole. But the important idea to remember is the blessing comes when we are truthful and confess–

AMERICA – God Hears and Listens

Do you know God is omnipresent? He is everywhere at the same time. How awesome is God? This means when we pray to Him from anywhere He hears us. My husband and I have trouble hearing each other when we are in the same room, but not God. Even in the darkest places, places we would never tell our best friend that we have wandered into, God is there and He hears and listens.

Hearing and listening are two separate abilities. Hearing is the perception of sound through the ear canal while listening takes skill. Listening processes what is being said. I guess the truth is my husband and I do hear each other, we just don’t process the words.

But not God. God listens intently. In fact He desires us to pray to Him anytime we choose; communing with God strengthens our relationship with Him.

America, we need to commune with God everyday so that our relationship with Him grows stronger.
