Week 44 Blessed is the Nation…
Psalm 144:10b-15 From the deadly sword deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets. BLESSED IS the PEOPLE of whom this is true; BLESSED is the NATION whose God is the Lord.”
Worried about ISIS invaders? Political deceit? Losing the hearts of the next generation? Worried about the economy? Job creation? Illegal immigrants? Losing our freedom?
If God is our Lord we can ask for deliverance and then reap blessings that make our fears seem insignificant, even laughable. Blessed also means HAPPY.
If ever our nation needed something to smile about its now. Remember it’s the righteous who lift a nation up. If we don’t, who else will?
