Healing America

Tue, May. 10, 2016 Posted: 10:11 PM


Broken hearts, broken trust. That's how many Americans feel about our country's leaders and current conditions. America, it's time to get our eyes back on Christ and not on people.

It's time to love and live like Jesus Christ. Take this verse to heart:

"If you do these things, God will shed his own glorious light upon you. He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward, goodness will be a shield before you, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind." (Isaiah 58:8, TLB)

Indeed, it is our duty to pray and do all we can at a local and state level to honor God. We must protect the freedoms to worship God. We must pray and work hard to preserve "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

Our country was built on Christian beliefs, as explained by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Remember, the current swirling mess of politics cannot hold a candle to God's greatness and power. So, let's release our fears to Him and place our country and our lives in His hands. We like to say, "When we do our best, He'll take care of the rest." (Can we get an "amen"?)

America needs healing. Now is a time to come to Jesus with open hearts and earnestly, consistently ask Him to intervene on the USA's behalf. Yes, we need Jesus. America needs Jesus.

This month's edition of Unite the USA is designed to focus on the unshakeable hope we have in Jesus. We must never give up serving Him and doing what's right. With that said, please enjoy this poignant, timely message by Pastor Doug Corlew called "God and Government". You will feel moved and encouraged. We urge you to watch this powerful message: http://www.unitetheusa.org/id148.html

Always remember, in God we still trust...no matter what. He is always on the throne yesterday, today, and forever.

Persevering with prayer,
