What a shame to have greater faith in the depravity of the enemy than in the goodness of God whose ear is tuned to the righteous. I am honestly tired of people declaring things with their mouths that are not God’s heart- inviting judgement, inviting more chaos to our nation as if that’s the only way. Ever wonder if cities remain wicked because we keep condemning it to judgement?
If we would realize that we are the bearers of Jesus Christ, and we have authority over principalities and powers that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God, we would speak the heart of God for our nation, realizing that His government will ever be increasing! The angels and demons hear us- maybe even the earth. The Bible says the fields clap their hands and earth magnifies God. Even the rocks will cry out if we don’t.
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. Romans 8:19-21
How can we in good conscience enjoy the bounty of this soul without being accountable to speak the Lord’s blessing and design over it? The earth groans for this.
I can say, “God bless America” this weekend and mean it. See, “blessing” is not a reward. One definition: “to confer or invoke divine favor upon; ask God to look favorably on.” Do we really want to hold that back on a nation that desperately needs divine favor?
I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. Ezekiel 22:30
Happy Birthday, America. May you you grow in faith, hope, in love. May you glorify God because He is good, and His love endures forever.
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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

-This is a great prophetic word for America + some loving discipline for hearts prone to stray from God’s heart for our nation: http://elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=14893
