To Be A Blessed Nation
The Upward Look

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12 NASB
The phrases “God Bless America” and “One nation, under God” are often heard around holidays like the Fourth of July. Yet God will not bless a nation who is willfully disobedient to His Word. He will not pour out His blessings on those who do not proclaim Him Lord. Our nation is no longer “one nation, under God.” As a whole we no longer seek to be under His command or Lordship. Let us repent and return to the Lord so that we can be blessed.
Lord Jesus, I pray for our nation that we would become obedient to Your Word. Help me to do my part in making this country blessed by living under Your Lordship.
