God gave us each a big mission in this life. It's much bigger than getting rich or having a big house and a fancy car. It's all about living for Him and putting Him first. You see, He loves us and wants us to do well, but He expects us to recognize that He is the One who provides all of the things we need. And he probably gets a little miffed when we act as if we are totally independent and need Him for nothing. I personally think that is one of the big problems we Americans as a group face today. We just think we can do all things by ourselves but, as we are finding out today, we can't. And for the many who substitute government for God, they find out that their situation is even worse, with broken promises repeated while the politicians enrich themselves and advance an agenda far from what we expect.
Our Creator knows everything and He knows what is best for us, but He gives us the free will to find out for ourselves. If we realize that we need His love and grace and turn to Him for guidance and direction, we prosper. Oh, not always in terms of riches and material things, but with a clear head, a strong conscience, a strong heart and the ability to make good decisions under his tutelage. And this means that we prosper, for we are headed for our ultimate destination: His "Promised Land".
Just think about it. America, the Land of Opportunity which has been so blessed by God over the generations has faltered and it is because we have lost our foundation in Him. We have replaced His guidance and love with a belief that government and its bureaucratic excesses and mindthink that always gets out of control as it gains power and control over it's subjects. Only by putting our faith back in God with His love, devotion and grace can we bring back our strength as individuals and our ability to fight sin which shows itself in so many devious ways. And sin is the ultimate source of human bondage if we allow it to take hold. It possesses us and works hard to keep us under its grip.
Don't forget that Jesus said that He is not of this world, that when God banished satan to earth he became free to infect souls and have people succumb to his evil wishes. We must open our hearts, let the Holy Spirit enter and fill us as He pushes satan aside. Let God's love take over and we will see our own fortunes change and achievement fulfillment in life as He desires. The more of us who do this, the better the nation will become and we can right our ship and change its destination toward Glory.
Let's put your heart and soul into it, pray about it, spend time with Him and His Holy Word, and great things will happen. But it's up to us and our own free will He won't do it for us, but He is waiting for our call.
Tonight on North Florida Writer Live at 9 I have a guest, Deborah Smith, a Christian group leader and teacher as well as a gifted Christian musician. I hope you will join as we discuss What God Expects From America? It will be honest and based upon our past and our present and hopefully might help us as we traverse the Way to Salvation.
