God is calling this nation to obey His voice and follow His leadership. Charles Stanley said, “Obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.” We as a nation need to repent of our independence from God and choose instead to follow Him, to obey His commandments, and to turn to Him for guidance when we face decisions. He has been faithful to this nation despite our faithlessness. May our faithlessness change to faith; may we like our founders, stand boldly in our Christian faith and truly depend on God.
Genesis 22:18 – Through your seed (Christ) all nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have heard and obeyed My voice.
Humble our hearts today so that we will hear Your voice. Help us as a nation to obey Your voice in all that we say and do. Continue to bless us, O Lord, and give us a compassionate and giving heart toward those around us. Hold us to a higher calling, that we will carefully observe Your commandments and be a “nation under God with liberty and justice for all.”
