"Returning Our Nation to God"

We begin this week’s article, Returning Our Nation to God, by reviewing the thrust of last week’s article, Returning to God.

That article addressed the hunger and thirst that we have for God and by observing the huge dividend that including Him pays, the “Cometh to Me” portion of John 6:35 KJV shows that Returning to God removes hunger and thirst:

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Reviewing this verse from Returning to God along with this weeks beginning verse, Psalm 33:12 KJV stresses Returning Our Nation to God as top priority and both do so for the same reason:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

We have been chosen for His inheritance! Our founding fathers built our great nation upon God’s foundation and both our Constitution and Declaration of Independence show this.

God has always blessed our nation but whether it surprises us or not, we now find ourselves stepping aside and allowing our elected officials to exclude Him.

What Returning Our Nation to God requires is a quick turn-a-bout by us, a turn-a-bout that requires:

Stopping our elected officials and appointees from removing God’s name from our nation’s statues, buildings, and currency.

Stopping these same elected officials from removing prayer and God’s name from our children’s classrooms and public events that we attend.

Creating a force that returns our Ten Commandments to Government and public facilities.

This can only happen if God’s will in Psalm 7:9 KJV is put in motion. Our voting the non-believers out of office will bring an end to the wickedness they bring to government:

Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

It is true that God trieth yet Psalm 37:5 KJV teaches that our only requirement is to commit to Him and to place our trust in Him:

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Committing to Him makes Returning our Nation to God possible as results come forth when we are committed and when we vote God-Fearing Christians into office.






Are you committing to Returning Our Nation to God by voting non-believers out of office this fall?

Have you made your position known?
