"The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father's house to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Genesis 12: 1-3
So, when I read this in the Bible this morning, it made me think... this could have been God talking to those who came to North America to establish The United States of America and to those of us who still reside here. People left their land, relatives, families, and homes to start a new country where they (and we) would be free to worship God. Our country was built on our trust in Him. He has made us a great nation. He has blessed us. He has made our name great. He has blessed those who bless us. And He has cursed those who treat us bad... and in return, we have taken Him out of our schools, our government, our plans, our homes and our lives. We need Him back in control!!! Please take a moment and invite Him back. Pray for our country. No name calling or blame laying... just ask Him to lead us back into our promised land. Thanks.
