The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Indeed, the Lord has blessed the United States of America, not because we are so faithful to Him, but because He has chosen to pour out His favor and mercy on a land that was founded upon His principles. As Americans, we have so much for which to to thankful.
But, may we never forget we are a nation of sinners who need the grace and mercy of a Savior. May we never cease to give Him thanks and praise for guiding our founding fathers to build our Republic upon those principles. As believers, let’s dedicate this day to prayer…to repentance for our nations’ sinful ways and to commitment in following Him anew. When we fail to do so, we can be certain His favor and hand of blessing will ultimately leave us, as it did the tabernacle in Shiloh when God’s people forsook Him.
May God bless the United States of America….and may America bless our Lord Jesus Christ! Have a blessed 4th of July!
