America, Bless God
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalms 33:12 (KJV)
Blessed and prosperous is that nation who has God as their Lord! They will be the people he has chosen for his own. Psalms 33:12 (The Passion Translation, TPT)
Many people believe America is great because of her exceptional people. While good people do contribute to the success of a nation, they are not the cause of her prosperity and blessing. America owes her power, prestige, and might to the God she serves. Contrary to the opinion of some, the United States is a Christian nation, built on Judeo-Christian values and the Holy Scriptures. The foundational documents of our country prove that. A look at the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution will show that to be true, not to mention thousands of other lesser known legal documents and decrees issued throughout our nation’s history. There are also numerous historical accounts telling of God’s supernatural intervention on America’s behalf in the midst of wars and battles. It is because our nation was dedicated to God that she has become the superpower she is. And it is because she has stood with the nation of Israel that she is blessed and favored among the nations of the world.
Today, the moral fiber of our nation is stretched and pulled nearly to the point of tearing. If America will remain a sovereign nation that stands for freedom and justice, she must remain true to the faith that she was founded upon. As Christians, it falls upon us to ensure that she is not ruined by those who seek to divide her people, steal her influence, and erase her Christian heritage. We must vote and we must vote for biblical values.
This is a pivotal time in history. We are on the precipice of the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit that the world has ever known. In order to bring in the final great harvest of souls, we need to have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the ability to share the Gospel without government hindrance or persecution.
We were created for such a time as this, and we must step up and do our part. Vote. Cast your ballot for people who support God’s agenda. Invoke His blessing upon this nation by using your vote to support biblical values. If it is true that blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, then the opposite is also true: cursed is the nation whose god is not the Lord. Now more than ever, it is time for God’s people to be heard, and for God’s will to be done in America as it is in heaven. We like to proclaim, “God bless America,” but more importantly, it is time for America to bless God.
