~ Today’s heart felt question (s) ~

Today as the fourth of July is celebrated in our nation this verse from God’s Written Word jumped out at me…


2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.”


*Then this question quickly followed:

“Will this nation of America EVER completely humble itself~pray~ seek God’s face~ and turn from their wicked ways?”

I do not know the answer to that question.  I do know many  individuals that do believe in God~do humble themselves~do pray~do seek God’s face~and do turn from their wicked ways.

If we as a nation are not listening to what the Good Lord says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and obeying Him my next question is:

“How are we any better than any other nations?”

Is this verse of scripture for today, also? Or our we actually God’s “nation” as individuals joined together by the Blood of Jesus?

I would love to hear what anyone has to say ~

  1. Hi my question how can God Bless this nation when we as a nation have killed millions through abortion we have gambling, same sex marriage, porn, and New Age a occult practices, and many other sinful things. We the US is under the judgement of God. Now we a Believers are not under the judgement of God but the nation and NonBelievers are there is a difference.

  2. I believe that patriotism is wicked idolatry Elizabeth.

    I mean it’s great to be appreciative that God has allowed us to live in a civil society.

    But as far as identifying oneself in patriotism, glorifying the military, etc…all bother me.

    1. I agree! Today, on the Christian radio station I’m listening to, there’s been nothing but songs to our flag and nation. Its as if they are sharing what belongs to God alone, which is His glory, with America today.

      I do not pledge allegiance to our flag but to our Beloved Lord Jesus. God bless America? He has. Its time America blesses God.

      1. BTW, this doesn’t mean I’m not grateful, I am. I thank God for letting me live in this nation above all others and I’m very grateful for the lives lost to let me live here. Our nation is truly the best and most blessed of all nations in this world. And the proof of our God’s great mercy and patience!

      2. I feel the same way.
        Growing up, like all young kids, we pledged allegiance to America every school mornin.

        But now,
        Now that I’m a Christian…

        To pledge allegiance to any country, government, or person is anti Christ.

        I’ll never do it again Lord willing. 🤠

      1. Thank you for sharing ! My next question would be why would we pledge allegiance to the flag- and what is said in that pledge as far as being one nation under God? I would also have to ask are we truly “one nation under God” or are we one nation under many “gods”? What about “justice for all”? Is abortion justice for all?

  3. Your welcome. Well I think this part of the article explains it. “Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor” (Romans 13:7). Pledging allegiance to the flag is but a form of paying “respect” and “honor” to our country, as we are commanded to do. But we as a country are far from God and under the judgement of God but not us Born Again Christians. I think it’s complicated question. Please understand I am in no way trying to start a fight I can be wrong about things. I think we are a of many gods.

  4. Thanks, Elizabeth. I see you stirred up a little controversy with this post that I’m sure you didn’t intend. Common ground? Well, we can all be grateful we live in this country with its hard-fought freedoms that we all enjoy. While we are all grateful citizens of the U.S., we’re also most importantly ambassadors and emissaries of our Lord’s Kingdom. Hallelujah! Believers have always struggled to find the right balance in rendering unto Caesar and unto the Lord, but today we can offer a collective prayer of thanks for our temporal home.

  5. Beth, many good thoughts here! We believers are a holy nation, a royal priesthood to the Lord. That said, I’m grateful to be here and can pledge allegiance, but not in worship. The two flags, U.S. and Christian, displayed in a church I believe is wrong, confusing things. Besides, the laws regarding flying a U.S. flag mandate that the U.S. flag must be in the prominent position. I’m getting close to not pledging allegiance because our nation is defying God.
