God Still Rules in America

flag2 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!” (Psalms 33:12) I am proud to be an American and a Christian. It seems that both are being put down, fought and even oppressed by society these days. But we have to remember that since our country’s inception, the founding fathers of the United States of America wanted God to be our ruler: “…One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” (Pledge of Allegiance). “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…” (Declaration of Independence.) and even the Constitution was “done in Convention … the Seventeenth Day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America.”(Article VII). So why do some Americans fight so hard to get rid of God in the schools, government halls and other public institutions? I would argue that we need to fight back in prayer. I recently watched the movie “War Room” (if you haven’t seen it, it’s a great lesson in how to pray…against evil and Satan instead of against other people.) I recommend that we pray that Satan leave the people leading the fight against God, and then pray to God to continue to oversee America.  I sat in church yesterday and the choir did a medley of patriotic songs, including “America the Beautiful.” This Memorial Day (and every day) I encourage you to remember those who have fought for our God-given freedom, to pray we vote in future leaders who keep God in America, and to keep singing, “America! America! God shed His grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!”

    Dearest Michelle,
    Very well put. Indivisible. It helps me to remember a certain observation the thousands of angels on a single pin head. There is a battle raging that cannot be seen…..I take comfort in knowing that God will prevail.

    Love ya much.
