Dr. Martin Luther King’s Niece, Alveda King’s latest book was written soon after the election of the next president of the United States.
Now hear this clarion call, “America, RETURN TO GOD!”
All of this talk about a “wall” for America has actually caused the hearts of America’s prayer warriors to hope again, realizing that a wall must have a strong foundation, a sturdy rock and a chief cornerstone. Finally, 21st-century America seems to have taken notice that something more is required if there is truly to be hope for America.
Yes, there is hope, and there still may be time to return to God and rebuild God’s wall of protection around our nation. If we sincerely desire to rebuild our nation, there is much to be learned from the lessons in the books of Esther, Ezra and Nehemiah.
One reason that America borders on the brink of economic disaster and constant violent upheaval is that we have turned blind eyes and deaf ears to the plight of our brothers and sisters. Like Cain who killed his brother Abel, we have despised good and have turned away from caring about what happens to our brothers and sisters.
We must humble ourselves as Nehemiah did:“When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of Heaven.” (Nehemiah 1:4 NIV).
It’s the season for the “hidden prophets” to speak out:
In the Bible account, Ahab called for Obadiah, his household supervisor. This man, who feared the LORD very much, had taken 100 prophets and had hidden them by fifties in a cave, providing them with food and water when Jezebel was trying to destroy the LORD’s prophets.
Let the kings and priests of God arise. Let the prophets and intercessors unite with the high praises of God in our mouths.
In the final analysis, hope springs eternal. Even as the year 2016 was a season for God repairing breaches and unleashing many spiritual gifts to advance His Heavenly Kingdom, I pray that 2017 and beyond will be remembered as the beginning of a new and fresh wave of repentance, healing and forgiveness among families, communities and nations. As hope springs eternal, faith will increase and agape love will grow stronger. As this happens, the repairing, rebuilding, restoring process is all part of God’s eternal plan to draw America ever closer to His heart.
