AMERICA’S WAKEUP CALL

A blogger made a comment to me: “maybe the reason God allowed Obama to be president was to give America a wakeup call”. That is a very interesting thought. God could be waiting to see how we react, now that we have a new president, to see if we take the opportunity to turn back to HIM. I firmly believe that God was directly involved in the presidential election. God has made it apparent that He wants us to take notice.

When God gave the nation of Israel their first king He told them to serve God and don’t rebel against His word and everything would work to the good for them. We as a people need to follow this example and be sure we follow God. God is willing to bless this nation now if we will only turn to Him and stop all the ungodly things that America has embraced in recent years.

If you fear the LORD and serve Him and obey His voice, and do not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then both you and the king who reigns over you will continue following the LORD your God. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king. — 1 Samuel 12:14,25

It is time to stand up and be counted that we are committing to God, the president, and this nation. Then we will be blessed beyond measure. God can take away blessings and then restore them twofold. Read the book of Job in the bible to see God in action. Our problem is we don’t believe God.

Let us search out and examine our ways, and turn back to the LORD. — Lamentations 3:40

It doesn’t matter whether someone is professing Christian or not. God is not a respecter of persons. God does not withhold the needs of people because they are unbelievers. God loves all people. He loves you! God created the heavens and the earth to be inhabited by men for a very important reason. All creation is meant for the inspiration, edification, and encouragement to men everywhere to learn about God and to have free moral agency as to whether they want God in their lives. But He does not discriminate against anyone. He loves you and wants to give you His blessings only if you let Him. He says in His word that He is always at your door knocking patiently waiting for you to let Him in.

that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. — Matthew 5:45

You can trust God and He promises to never forsake you or leave you.

God teaches us to love Him and to love our neighbors just as we would like for them to love us. May God bless your life for reading this!

I live north of San Antonio, Texas in the hill country community of Spring Branch, Texas. I have lived in Spring Branch since 1996. I occasionally teach adult Sunday School classes and preach at retirement homes on Sunday which I enjoy very much. My wife and I married in 1960 and have 3 children, and 13 grandchildren. We enjoy our home in the beautiful South Texas Hill Country where I am now retired and spend my time attending church, reading, writing, working on the internet (INOE), gardening, and photography. I believe in the Lord God Jesus Christ, His salvation by grace, His suffering and death on the cross for all men, and His resurrection to life. I pray that God will use this blog to bring people to Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen!
