The blessings and deliverance that this nation has experienced are from outpourings of Grace — outpourings that have periodically happened throughout the history of our nation. And they can happen again…or not.

“…IF My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

What will it take to pull us away from the minutiae and distractions and self-centerdness of life and pray for God’s deliverance for our nation?  How bad does it have to get before we get on our knees and passionately, seriously cry out to the only One who can truly help us?!

…IF…not now, when?

“Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of Love!
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Opening to the sun above!
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness,
Drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the Light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee!
Earth and Heaven reflect Thy rays!
Stars and angels sing around Thee,
Center of unbroken praise!
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flowery meadow, flashing sea!
Singing bird and flowing fountain,
Call us to rejoice in thee!!!!!!!”

“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” (Psalm 42:5-6)

Sometimes the only way out of a foggy valley is the thing that, at the time, we feel least capable of doing.  But when we press through, and remind ourselves of the good things He has done in our lives, and praise Him, we often find ourselves rising above the gloom and depression — and joy breaks through.

When we, as believers, start a theological conversation with “How could a loving God…?” rather than with “What does the Bible say?”, it is perhaps an indication that our emotions are more important to us than truth.
