The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The thoughts and plans of His heart through all generations. Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance (Psalm 33:11-12).
G_d’s plan is and has always been to bless those who will serve Him with a humble heart. The problem is that we have “free will” that is, the power of choice. Who are “the chosen”? It is those who with a humble and contrite heart will follow Him not looking to line their pockets or develop a power center (Micah 6:6-8). Following Jesus’ path is a personal choice and cannot be pushed or detracted from by legislation. At issue is that as surely as a nation can be blessed, it can also be cursed by our choices of the populace. so, we either be a Daniel (Daniel 9:2-3) or a Dathan (Exodus 32:1-2), can either be Jerusalem or Sodom/Gomorrah.
I pray for my nation today in the time of your favor. I know that you desire the best for this nation and this world but, we have sinned before you and have placed gods ahead of you. I know of your anger and your blessings because I have seen both of them in my life. Today it is popular to bring down statues, deface property, and ban movies and books because it speaks “racism” but that will never wipe away the stain it will only divide the nation. Help us to see your pathway and follow it Lord to the end.
Yours IN Christ Jesus
