AMERICA, Bless God
It is not unusual for us to hear the words God Bless America. In fact, we have a well-recognized national song that declares just that. Especially in times of crises will you hear that phrase, though I believe it is spoken with little true knowledge or belief in the one to whom it is addressed
God cannot bless America until America blesses God. As David said in Psalm 33
Psalm 33:12 (ESV)
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!
We cry for blessings from God but how often do we bless Him? To bless means to speak and act in such a way as to confer goodness, happiness, and favor upon the one to whom we are addressing as well as the condition that fulfills those good words and acts
So how can we BLESS God, so that God may BLESS us?
We can BLESS God…
1. By acknowledging his existence and supremacy
2. By following His ways, not ours
3. By humbling ourselves and repenting of our sin
4. By fervently praying and interceding for His help
5. By boldly proclaiming His name
NOTE: After we cut the live feed, I shared the following video because I felt led to share this information with the church. You can listen carefully and use your own discernment. I share, not to propagate fear, but that we might be strengthened to prepare ourselves and to carry out the things I preached in this message, that God might have mercy upon America..
