Deeper Day 319: America, the Beautiful

The other day while I was out exercising, I passed by some very tall grass, I felt my spirit begin to stir. This tall grass looked a lot like grain. Immediately, I heard, “America, America. God shed His grace on thee.” I kept hearing those words over and over. Then God said, “Listen Lisa, heaven is singing over America right now.”

What a breathtaking word and vision. I couldn’t deny the profound weight of this moment. I stopped and listened as I could suddenly see heaven releasing this song over America. My spirit felt solid and steady and peace flooded my heart.

Friends, God is here. He is singing over us even now. In the midst of turmoil, He is steady and full of grace. You can lean on the Unshakeable One.

Though the earth gives way, and the mountains fall into the sea, I will praise Him. As He shakes what can be shaken, so He can establish what cannot be shaken, I will trust Him.

Our season of grace has not ended. On the contrary, this unexpected encounter reinforced to my heart that we will walk out more grace. God is here.

God sees. All that is done in secret, He sees. He knows every heart and deception. He knows every spirit and He knows all truth. We can trust Him.

As you set out to start this day, I encourage you to stop and remember the One Who is steady. Remember that He loves America. He placed this country here to bring many freedoms to His people and to champion true freedom for others around the world. We’ve not lost that opportunity or purpose.

Pray. Pray like you mean it. Pray for our country. Pray and release blessings, not curses. We will win this battle.

Prayer Moment: God, thank You for giving me that encounter with You. Thank You for pouring out Your grace and mercy over America. Help us to continue to hold to and walk in that freedom. Give us grace for each other. Give us grace to hold fast to Your promises. Teach us Your ways that we might not sin against You. You are the faithful One, in Whom I trust. Be with us now and forevermore and establish Yourself among us. Champion those who stand for righteousness and truth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us, that Your ways may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise You, O God, may all the peoples praise You. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for You rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You. Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us. God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him. Psalm 67
