Make My Life Great Again!

The LORD always does right, and so he wanted his Law to be greatly praised.   But his people were trapped and imprisoned in holes with no one to rescue them. All they owned had been taken, and no one was willing to give it back.   Why won't his people ever learn to listen?   Israel sinned and refused to obey the LORD or follow his instructions. So the LORD let them be robbed of everything they owned.   He was furious with them and punished their nation with the fires of war. Still they paid no attention. They didn't even care when they were surrounded and scorched by flames.

Isaiah 42: 21 - 26

The United States of America was founded in the full recognition of the God of Heaven.  Not unlike Israel the US has been blessed greatly when it stands firm in “Trusting in God” and has suffered greatly when it did not!

I would say to the whole world that the secret of this nation that has a serious problem with millions of people wanting to leave their homelands and come to America, even illegally is this: “In God we trust” is printed on our money!  When we trust in God we are blessed and when we trust in anything else, including ourselves our blessings begin to evaporate!

We were a great nation and will be a great nation again when we Trust in God!  Our greatness does not come from a political party, a President, a well armed military, or smart fiscal decisions.  

The same is true for every human being on earth!  When anyone trusts in God they will be blessed, but when you trust in anyone or anything else the blessings of God will fly away from your life.  

“Lord Jesus, I want to be great again, not for my glory, but for Yours.  I want everyone who sees my life to know that You are the God of Heaven and that You bless those who give You their lives and walk in the shadow of Your love.  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
