Since the beauty of Jesus’ resurrection, Christianity continues to expand beyond the walls of Jerusalem. Today, one-third of the world declares themselves Christian. In America that number is higher. According to a 2020 census on religion by the Public Religious Research Institute 70% of Americans claim themselves to be Christian…a follower of Christ.
America, this statistic can redeem our country! God gives Christians all power in Jesus’ name so through Jesus we can call to Him for healing.
God of the universe is a multitasker – He never stops working.
There are dominant works one can see that God does, like healing the sick or restoring relationships. We pray for positive outcomes to these unpleasant situations and feel blessed when we visually, emotionally, physically, or spiritually experience His response. But God also does works for us – everyday – works that we never bother to notice. Major works, works that sustain us and keep life easy.
Maybe we don’t notice these works because we didn’t specifically pray for them or, is it because we simply take them for granted?
Everything comes with instructions. If the goal is to achieve a satisfying outcome we follow instructions. Basic assembly instructions for a newly purchased gas grill or ceiling fan are found in booklet form in the box or are available online. To assure product success we read and follow instructions.
Americans know instructions are readily available online on how to play golf, drive a car, make lasagna, launder a dress, recover from a cold. Even basics on how to apply suntan lotion correctly and how to properly brush teeth are found in the cloud. Everything comes with instructions to follow in order to achieve a satisfying outcome.
So, Christian America, why aren’t we applying that same principle by following God’s instruction (also available in an online Bible) to heal our nation?
Though doubters deny the worthiness of Jesus they can not stop those who believe in our hearts Jesus is the son of God. Jesus is holy, His name is power, His majesty surpasses all understanding. Like stones are unstoppable at crying out to the Creator, doubters are unable to stop believers from shouting for joy at the sound of His name.
Luke 19:37-40 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
Too often, through trials and tribulations, we doubt we are loved. We doubt there is anyone who cares, I mean really cares for our well-being. Usually we look to people, activities, or achievements for love, only to find disappointment.
The truth is there is someone who loved us before we were born; someone who never disappoints. And, we are specifically created to be in a loving relationship with Him; we are not created to falsely seek love from the affairs of this world.
Unlike what the world offers, God’s son Jesus came so that we may be loved!
Thank you, Christian Americas! Thank you for taking time to pray each night at 9 PM Eastern Standard Time for our beloved country.
Christian prayer warriors are making a difference in the direction America is heading. God bless you!
Look what you have accomplished…Roe Vs. Wade is no more. The Lord hears the humble cries and requests of a nation that longs to serve God. Our united voice of humility and repentance at 9 PM EST each night is helping America reclaim obedience to God.
God is good. Though we may not feel His presence at all times, at all times – His presence is with us.
Feeling His presence is often relative to the location of your walk with God. Do you believe you are close to Him, strolling side by side? Or are you watching from a distance, not understanding His magnificence as He interacts with others?
I encourage you not to remain afar from our LORD but instead boldly approach Him, as others have done, by increasing your faith in who He is. God is patient as He awaits you to grow your faith. As you do this He will warmly welcome you into His presence.
Last week I posted the need for American Christians to stop remaining quiet, to stop allowing elected officials to push America deeper into a pit of immorality. American Christians must understand the impact of remaining neutral. Remain neutral – being neither hot nor cold – is basically an affront to God.
Remaining neutral on topics that affect the stability of Christian freedoms and morals in America, for generations to come, offers no hope for a stable righteous America. If we remain neutral the bad guys win because no-one will be standing firm on God’s word. Neutrality never helps the victim, it enables the oppressor.
God is not neutral, He will not stand with those who do not claim Him.
As a Christian, are you waiting for God to change the shouting ways of the world? We know the morality of God is slowly being subdued: His word talked over, the definition of biblical marriage rewritten with lies, even truth defining man and woman is edited with society’s opinions.
God does not want Christians muffled by the shrieks of satan. We know God desires His word to be clearly heard in our country and all over the world. Jesus even instructed His believers to go forth and proclaim Him to “all nations”.
“Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Easter is the holiest of celebrated holidays to Christian believers. It is the resurrection of Jesus our savior—The One who was crucified then came back to life three days later. Resurrection is the core of Christianity.
Through Jesus’ resurrection mankind receives salvation—deliverance from sin. We come to understand this truth through Bible study, attention to biblical sermons, and heartfelt prayer. God’s word truly is a love letter for mankind to read and enjoy.
