"In God we trust."
Does God care? Florida unemployment rates set Alachua 10,096 at 7.7%, Columbia 3,435 at 10.4%, Marion 19,339 at 14%, Suwannee 1,963 at 10.0% as of December 2009. These are not just statistics; these are real people, our neighbors!
An important point—God is an eternal blessing God. Goodness invites his blessing. Evil blocks his blessing. People seem to blame God for everything. But it is the devil who comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Man's own sin prevents blessing and allows evil to prevail.
“Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a reproach to any people”
Yes, God wants to restore and prosper America. To do so, America must individually repent and collectively turn back to God.
“In God we trust.”
Otherwise, the rebellion against God will prevail through the evil in the society, through the disregard of his ten commandments. Just watch the examples on the evening news! As the Bible shows, failing nations, resultantly, are subjugated by outside forces when the Judeo-Christian ethic is ignored. This is already happening to America economically. Will we live to see the day it happens militarily?
"If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place" (2 Chronicles 7:14-15 NKJ).
Prayer is the most powerful force on earth.
Moses learned this when Pharaoh's army and 600 war chariots backed some two million men, women, and children to the shores of the Red Sea (Exodus 14). Situation impossible. Jacob learned at the impregnable walls of Jericho (Joshua 6). Hezekiah learned in the face of a 185,000 man Assyrian army (Isaiah 37).
Above all else, pray for America!
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29: 11-13 NKJ).
