Wednesday In The Word-God bless America! Why Should He?

The church sign where I work says.......

 AMERICA BLESS GOD

These words makes one think doesn't it? We ask that God bless America and I can't help but wonder, why should He? Have we given Him any reason to bless America? In all reality He has blessed America with more than we can ever begin to imagine and yet we take advantage of Him and the things He has blessed us with. We misuse the things He has given to us, we easily accept the unacceptable simply because we don't want to get involved or we feel we're only one voice and it doesn't matter and we turn a deaf ear and blind eye to the wickedness that surrounds us in hopes that someone else will take care of it. We stay quiet because we do not want to offend anyone. We pray all the while...GOD PLEASE BLESS US! Bless your land and your people! 

We can't continue to sin like we do and expect our God who is HOLY GOD to turn a blind eye from what is going on! I know we've read this 1000 times and for some of us we've even memorized it but the WORDS are clear.
2nd Chronicles 7:14: 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I am saddened by the own sin in my life that has caused my Savior such heartache. I am saddened by the sin I feel we so easily accept and tolerate.  We were born into this world as sinners and we live in a fallen world but God's Word also says,  "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
 It is my prayer that on this July 4th that yes, we enjoy our family and friends. That we make memories with our cookouts, pool parties and fireworks. But that we PRAY for forgiveness, seek His face, ask for His guidance and direction and that we BLESS HIM with our actions and words.

Happy 4th of July to all!



Hugs and blessings, Cindy
