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 – 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 – “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!”

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 – Offer God His Glory

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.

AMERICA–Stand Up For Christian Freedom

Whenever and wherever a Christian service takes place in America we have laws stating all are welcome to attend. How wonderful it is to have this freedom. The freedom to openly worship God and hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.

No matter if it’s Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, Catholic, Episcopalian, Baptist or any other Christian denomination, I know I’m free to openly carry my Bible into the building of any church in any state and praise the LORD!

Freedom to openly worship in church in America is important to Christians, but open worship has two parts. True open worship means we also, as followers of Christ, have freedom to live the biblical teachings we learn in church. This means allowing Christians to openly live Godly lives; to make family decisions, educational choices, businesses dealings and health options based on what God’s Word tells us.
