Psalm 145:3-7 “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.”
As 2016 approaches, we must be mindful of its importance in the future of our nation. We cannot overstate the criticality of the juncture at which we sit. The next year’s election results at the local, state, and federal levels will indicate whether we are headed for national revival and restoration or irreversibly away from both.
In order to prepare our hearts for the upcoming year, we must turn our minds back 240 years. The year of 1776 was critical to our nation. God’s centrality to the formation of America cannot be overstated, and it will be a PLUS focus of 2016. During that pivotal year, God acted in miraculous ways. That generation expressed praise to the Lord and declared His mighty acts. They spoke of His glorious honour, His amazing majesty, and His wondrous works. Today, we must utter the memory of His greatness and sing of His righteousness as we consider God’s role in our formation. Doing so will encourage, equip and challenge us.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO LINGER ON GOD’S IRREPLACEABLE ROLE IN OUR FOUNDING. We must utter the memory of His greatness at all times.
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re ENCOURAGED (by the reminder that Christ came to save our fallen world), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
