In light of all that has been going on with the USA, we see all sorts of issues were dealing with and one of them is that we as a nation has failed, why? The answer is pretty simple.
We as a Nation are not humbling ourselves before God any more, we have humble ourselves to the world ways and views and have degraded what we once were, a people of God, serving God and a Nation under God.
We must humble ourselves and cry out to God and get back on track, if we do not then we cannot advance spiritually without the virtues of faith and humility walking together.
When either is isolated from the other, our walk becomes unbalanced. Faith without humility degrades into presumption, while humility isolated from faith can become oppressive. We need both.
Scriptures tell us that without faith it is impossible to please God and that whatever is done without faith is sin (Heb. 11:6; Rom. 14:23). God gives promises, and it is faith that possesses them. Yet what faith possesses, humility surrenders.
Consider Christ: there will be a time when every knee will bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Phil. 2:10-11). The kingdoms of this world will finally become the kingdom of our Lord (Rev. 11:15). However, Christ’s reaction to subduing the world is that He then “hands over the kingdom to the . . . Father” (1 Cor. 15:24). This is the humility of Christ: what He conquers, He then surrenders. Well the problem we have as a Nation our current leaders are not surrendering themselves over to God and giving into pleasures of this world and not giving it back to God, in their eyes the god they serve is self.
In America we want faith to conquer, but we’re not sure we want the second part, giving it back to God, total surrender. Yet this is the pattern of those who have followed God: Abraham has faith and believes God and, in time, the promised son is born. Yet at the command of God, Abraham, in worshipful surrender, takes Isaac to a mountain and there actually surrenders him back to God.
David conquers Jerusalem then dedicates it to the Lord, calling it the “city of God.” Or consider Hannah who was barren, who bears a child, Samuel, but then surrenders Samuel to God (1 Sam. 1). I pray for my city, not so I can possess it, but so I can give it back to God. Whatever we gain by faith, to grow into maturity, we must surrender as an offering back to God.
This is the great mystery, one that I believe holds within itself a key to the power of God working in our lives: what we give over to God, He takes over. He multiplies the loaves and fish. so He will multiply our resources as we surrender our treasures to God, where neither moth not dust corrupts (Matt. 6:20).
You see, our goal is not only to create a better life here for ourselves but, through faith and humility, to extend the Kingdom of God into our world (Matt. 6:10). Faith brings Heaven’s provisions to Earth; our surrender brings God’s presence into those provisions, multiplies them, and makes them a blessing to many.
If we do not humble ourselves and act upon faith in believing that God cannot do what he says, then this Nation is dead and we have given place to the worldly views because we as a Nation has submitted to the lust of man and not given this Nation back to God.
If this is the case then we will never see the blessing of God as we once did in the past and were nothing more than a wicked and viperous generation. God help us. Humble yourselves and cry out and give this Nation back to God. Lord help us.
