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.

AMERICA – Don’t Doubt God

America is going though some tough times right now: a pandemic the media won’t report clear data on, elections called under questionable factors, and families and businesses trying to navigate new normals. If you are not a true believer, tough times may lead you to experience doubt in our God.

But don’t doubt–don’t be a Doubting Thomas.

Doubting Thomas is a nickname derived from the story in the book of John. It’s when Jesus, after being crucified and buried, rises from the grave and appears to most of His disciples in a room with locked doors. Thomas, a disciple not present, was later told by those that stood among Jesus what they experienced.

It’s hard to place ourselves in Thomas’s shoes, but think about what you believe, America, then think about Thomas.

Pray For AMERICA

Prayer comes naturally to Christians. It’s like talking to a good friend–someone you love and you know loves you. When Christians want to talk to God we do it through prayer.

Talking to God regarding personal troubles, family situations, or job related problems is natural because these situations involve us. We all have some sort of issue close to our heart that needs fixed: complicated personal decisions, family situations which create tension, job issues that affect our future or someone we dearly love. So we pray. We ask for God’s guidance, deliverance, and strength.

Praying for personal issues close to our hearts is usually what most people pray about. We do this because we need help, and we believe God cares for our needs. But are you remembering to pray for issues wider than your intimate world?

AMERICA – Meditate On The Mighty Word Of God

The Bible tells us we should meditate on God’s law, but what does it mean to meditate? Often, people think of meditation as chanting, an act of trying to relax their body and mind. Chanting is popular in some forms of yoga. But meditation also has another meaning. Not to simply relax–but to focus. To focus one’s mind on one specific thing; thinking deeply about that topic for a period of time while trying to come to an understanding of its true meaning.

America, we could certainly benefit from some deeper thinking of the Bible in Washington D.C. right now.

Scripture frequently mentions meditating on the teachings and laws of God. As we think more qualitative thoughts, and reflect on what we believe His word signifies, we can better understand the importance of living righteously and following the truth of the lessons God shares with us in the Bible.

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.

AMERICA – “One Nation Under God”?

The Pledge Of Allegiance, which I grew up reciting every morning in school, was first published in 1892 in a magazine titled, The Youth’s Companion. The pledge was originally composed as:

“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Over time some changes were made in the wording, the last change being made in 1954. At the suggestion of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Congress legislated that “under God” be added, making the final pledge language to read as we know it today:

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!”
