Once again, America is recovering from yet another tragedy. Within a very short time, the nation has experienced one tragedy after another where cities are devastated, lives have been lost and individual lifestyles will be changed forever. One day we’re recovering from monster hurricanes, the next day we’re torn apart by racial or political divisions; and now we are stunned by the worst mass shooting in our history.
In the midst of the voices crying out to God, we can sense God saying to us through the storms and tragedy, “AMERICA, YOU NEED ME!”
What message are we sending around the world while our nation is torn apart by racial strife and division, as our inner cities are ravaged by gangs, as baby parts are sold and the remains are thrown into dumpsters behind abortion mills — and schools are teaching young children how to find their own gender identity?
While many ask, “Can America still be healed?” — The still small voice of God is calling out to us, “AMERICA, YOU NEED ME!”
There is no political solution. There is no social Band-Aid that can be applied. There is no law that can be passed that will heal our sick land. Simply put, America must return to her first love.
How do we find our way back to the God that created this nation? We need to simply get on our faces before the Lord, acknowledge our own sins and shortcomings, and not point the finger at others but rather at ourselves (2 Chronicles 7:14-15).
What else is needed to get our attention?
Without God in our midst, America’s condition is hopeless. With Him, there is hope – but we must act now. America will only be healed by REPENTANCE. God is calling us back to Him so He can heal our land. God alone knows the enemy has even worse plans of devastation ahead for the nation.
“To whom much is given, from him much will be required” (Luke 12:48). Like it or not, our nation was founded on biblical principles, with God at the center of our nation, and America can only be great if America is moral.
America needs her own Yom Kippur – her own Day of Atonement. Let us do, then, what millions of Jews did during their recent celebration of Yom Kippur, by fasting and confessing our personal and national sins, asking for God’s mercy.
Let us also look to the cross where the Savior paid for our sins and make whatever changes we must make in our own lives and families to stand in right relationship with God and our neighbor.
Luke 21:28, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
