‘For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.’
II Chronicles 16:9a
Did you know that God will judge any nation that neglects and rejects His ways? As we focus in on the condition of America today we see that our neglect of God has been an issue for more than 50 years. We can see through Scripture that the redemption of America awaits the repentance of the people of God.
It may sound surprising to you but if we sincerely think about it, the salvation of our great nation has little to do with Washington or Hollywood; it has everything to do with the people of God! If the chosen ones of God, the church, don’t sense that the problem is with us, then we may never see a revival in our land.
God responds to repentant hearts. Jesus said in John 14:13, “and whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” With this promise, God’s people can change the course of our nation being judged.
The condition of our nation is a reflection of the choices that have been made by the people of God. So we have an urgent need for the people of God to get on our knees and pray. It doesn’t require a large amount of people to turn the course of a nation.
What could God do through your life? Do you sense that America needs the mighty help of the Holy Spirit? Most importantly, do you believe God can use you as He has done with others in the Bible?
Lord, we need You. We need the help of Your Holy Spirit to touch us and convict us and to bring us to repentance. Use me to reflect Your grace and mercy to everyone I come into contact with today.
