But I assure you of this: If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed. Just as the Lord has destroyed other nations in your path, you also will be destroyed if you refuse to obey the Lord your God. —Deuteronomy 8:19-20

Judgment is coming to all nations who “refuse to obey the Lord Your God.” Yes, that includes the United States. If we think we can turn our back on the Lord God Almighty and do our own thing without consequences we are badly mistaken. We will certainly be destroyed. So many seek the gods of wealth and power, drugs and sexual promiscuity and the list goes on. We are a people seeking all sorts of gods while turning our backs on the Lord God Almighty. Yes, the King is coming whether people believe it or not. Just because people do not want to accept what is true doesn’t change that truth! Jesus is coming! Those who know Him will rejoice and those who do not know Him will mourn. But, “God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11). It is eternal spiritual suicide to turn our backs on Him as an individual or a nation.

Dear Father, have mercy on our nation and turn us to You. Please help us to regain our spiritual roots as a nation. Only You can unravel the tremendous mess our nation is in. Oh, that we would know Your grace through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment.
