God, the magnificent Creator of all things seen and unseen, is everlasting holy glory. God’s glory is not a seeable or touchable object like shiny gold. His glory is more precious than any weight of gold. God’s glory is who He is; His glory is His character. And His character is unmatched, no man will ever replicate God’s character–not even esteemed kings or preachers.
God’s glory is His faithfulness, His truthfulness, the solidity of His Word. God’s glory is the same today as it was yesterday and as it will be tomorrow.
Everything God made, and He made everything, contains His glory. The heavens, animals, plants…they all contain His glory and were created by His glory.
So the beautiful thing for America is: God created America for His glory.
It’s not hard to notice America is living though some tough times right now. The negative effects of Covid continue to cause wide spread havoc in our country. And half of America is unhappy with Washington as politicians fight amongst themselves for their own glory and not for the livelihood of its citizens. With all this chaos causing a domino effect of problems for America it’s understandable folks are feeling lost.
But what, dear Christians, does God instruct His children to do in all circumstances despite living through hardship? The Bible tells us we are to praise Him, Habakkuk 3:17-19. We are to praise His holy name. No matter our situation, good or bad, we are to praise our great Creator. He is the the only One who knows the “why” of all events. Brothers and sisters in Christ, I know it’s hard, but we are to obey His instruction, to place our faith and trust in His perfect plan and timing. He will get us through this season.
Over the years America has separated from God’s timing. We’ve allowed ourselves to indulge in more “me time” and less “God time.” We’ve drifted from the truth, removing God from our government, schools, businesses and even our families. Sadly we opt to fix, or should I state manipulate, situations by our own means. We take on our problems as do-it-yourself projects. But think about it…how’s that technique really working for us?
