“God Bless America!” Something we hear fairly often, and sometimes even may say it ourselves. At one time in our history it may have actually been the earnest prayer of a reverent people. But now? Perhaps at best a trite wish of a people who don’t know God, and thus have no concept of His blessings. I am not a pessimist, and being negative is not at all my intent here. I believe that today I am being a realist. I don’t generally agree with our 44th president, however I believe he may actually be onto something in quote below. And if he is correct, then indeed our blessing is lost.
Is it too late? Are we beyond hope? “If My people who are called by My name 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.” A quote from God in 2 Chronicles 7:14.
