Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

God Bless America

The Flag stands among the ruins and rubble of lives lost, dreams destroyed, families broken, friends gone, a way of life under sever attack. All gone in the fire, smoke and ashes of the collapsed Twin Towers. Terrorists had done their worst, yet there standing in the midst of smoldering ashes and debris is the FLAG of the United States of America.

The FLAG stands for governmental liberty, for the dignity of humanity, for equal opportunity, for religious freedom, for freedom of speech, for the best hopes and dreams of a better life and more glorious future. She stands for what is right, noble and just for all who follower her and seeks to embrace the values she represents.

And where do these values come from Father, but You. They come through your grace, mercy, truth, and love. You have established the foundation on which if any people will build their lives in faith and obedience will reap Your overflowing benefits. That is why Father you Word tells us:

1 Corinthians 3:11 (GW)
     After all, no one can lay any other foundation than the one that is already laid, and that foundation is Jesus Christ.

Therefore Father the following verses are true:

Psalm 33:12 (GW)
     Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. Blessed are the people he has chosen as his own.

Psalm 144:15 (GW)
     Blessed are the people who have these blessings! Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!

So Father when we give our pledge to the Flag of the United States of America it is with the acknowledgement that we are “One Nation Under God.” Without You Father, we are nothing. So on this weekend of 911 when we remember how much was lost in the assault on our nation, we also remember all we have as “One Nation Under God” and it is Your blessings that have sustained us throughout our history.

Thank You Father that we can still sing and pray “God Bless America!”

In the Name of Jesus our Lord and Savior,
