God Bless America!
I always love the 4th of July as we celebrate America’s Independence Day and ask for God’s blessings for our land. Cooking out, watching fireworks, enjoying family and friends…it all makes for a great day! But I want to also focus on the fact that we are called as a body of believers to pray for our country. More than ever, we must turn to Scripture which clearly points us to prayer:
“If My people who are called by My name will 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.” II Chronicles 7:14
From this passage, I want to focus on the word, “humble.” God is asking us to humble ourselves, to pray, and to seek. He is not calling us to fix a broken world. He is not calling us to rally against people and alienate ourselves. No, rather He is calling us to be humble, to love others, to be winsome in our approach. Then He will hear us, forgive us and heal our country. We must look deeply into our own hearts. We must work at being humble.
God is sovereign and faithful. His love for His people is great. He reigns! Our job is to be salt and light in this very dark place…but to do this in a winsome and humble way. And to pray. I hope that this July 4th we will include prayer in our celebration of America’s birthday. Together, we can make a difference in our land…praying and thanking God for His gift of our country.
And speaking of prayer, we want to thank you so much for partnering with us here at Good Life 45. Your faithful prayers and financial support help keep us on the air 24 hours a day. We believe that now more than ever, Good Life 45’s message of hope is to remind us that God has a divine purpose for all of our lives. We share that message with great joy! And know that we are your Good Life 45, Where Hope Happens…in Jesus Christ. And Happy 4th of July! Make it meaningful!
God bless you, and may God bless our country!
