September 3 – God’s Country
«The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.»
Right now you and I are standing face-to-face with situations in our nation that need to be changed. Some of those situations look totally impossible. But they’re not. Because this country belongs to God.
He’s the One Who brought the United States of America into existence. He had a special purpose for it. He needed a country where the gospel could be preached freely and not suppressed.
It was God Himself Who stirred the heart and mind of Christopher Columbus and planted within him the dream of charting a new course to the West. Columbus said so in his own journals. He wrote: «It was the Lord Who put into my mind–I could feel His hand upon me–the fact that I could sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There’s no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because He comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures.»
Who brought Christopher Columbus to America? God brought him. This is God’s nation. He raised it up, and it’s not going to be taken away from Him.
The next time you’re tempted to look at situations in this country as impossible, remember Who it belongs to. Then you can discover America just like Christopher Columbus did–by faith.
