"Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in aw of Him." (Psalm 33:8)
One Bible titles this Psalm, "The Sovereignty of the Lord in Creation and History." The Psalm begins with a call to, "Rejoice," and, "make melody to Him...." He then declares, "By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth." And then the call is, "Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him." And verse 10 reveals the destiny of men and nations who govern as Babel, "Let us make a name for ourselves," and the futility of humanity in its endeavors apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, "The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations." Search the Scriptures and you will see that any people group which submits to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Reign, His Government in the earth, has always had the promise that its, "counsel," and, "plans," would, "stand forever...."
Americans have had a privilege unlike any other nation in human history. They have had the privilege and awesome responsibility from the very founding of The United States of America to determine their own leaders. I recently read an article which revealed that since 1960, Americans have never turned out to vote in numbers greater that 60%! And since we know that most Americans are not "evangelicals," what does this day about the percentage of the American church and its voting record? Followers of Jesus Christ have had the responsibility from the beginning of America to determine who rules in the land. "The counsel of the Lord," could have ruled this nation from the late 18th century to today. Why has it not? People who call themselves "Christians" have been like the Hebrew Army on the hillside opposite the Philistine forces in 1 Samuel 17. Every day they would go forth to the battle shouting-------------------- but did absolutely nothing. At the, "Judgement Seat of Christ," we will be held accountable for this great neglect and capitulation to the forces of Satan.
America could have had Presidents, Congresses, and Supreme Courts, let alone state and local governments which would have manifested the Reign of Jesus Christ. Oh, yes it could have!! But I am still praying for such a nation, a nation of which Psalm 33:12 declares, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord...." There will always be the Obamas, the Reverend Wrights, the perverts of Hollywood etc. But they do not have to control the nation. That is up to us who claim Jesus Christ as our Lord. Working and voting, not just shouting and building bigger "ministries," as one voice, "that they may be one just as We are one," America can still be a, "Blessed...nation whose God is the Lord."
Father, in Jesus' Name, may it be so." Amen.

When Peter, an 18 year old Norwegian, "heard the call to evangelize China, on that day he not only emptied his wallet into the collection plate, but included a small note with the words, 'and my life.'"
