I'm not quite sure of where to put this so if it's in the wrong place I'm trusting that it will be transfered to the correct area.

Anyway, I really felt a burden to pray for our country, the USA. Sometimes I get so upset and fearful for us as a country that I cry out to God and I feel like my heart is breaking because it seems we have, as a nation, pulled so faraway from God. I pray that the Lord would shake us and bring us back to His Righteousness.
And the other day when I was doing just that God gave me this scripture. I know He was speaking to me but I feel He's speaking to all believers.

He said to me "I am in control. Do not fear or fret. My children are in My Hand and I will care for them."

Isaiah 45:8-13
Amplified Bible

8 Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it.

9  Woe to him who strives with his Maker!--a worthless piece of broken pottery among other pieces equally worthless [and yet presuming to strive with his Maker]! Shall the clay say to him who fashions it, What do you think you are making? or, Your work has no handles?(A)

10 Woe to him [who complains against his parents that they have begotten him] who says to a father, What are you begetting? or to a woman, With what are you in travail?

11 Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Would you question Me about things to come concerning My children, and concerning the work of My hands [would you] command Me?

12 I made the earth and created man upon it. I, with My hands, stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host.

13 I will raise [Cyrus] up in righteousness [willing in every way that which is right and proper], and I will direct all his ways; he will build My city, and he will let My captives go, not for hire or for a bribe, says the Lord of hosts.


I am both thankful and glad that I am God's Mighty Hand and He will protect me.

Hi baxley,

This could fit in a number of different boards on the forum. This one is fine. You received an answer to the needs of your heart, Amen.

We are indeed facing some troubling times. As you have pointed out here God has done so in many different portions of the Bible. He is in control and we are in the protective care of His hands. What have we to fear? Death? Not when we have God with us. As we are told:


1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1Co 15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Joh 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

I think we all need to constantly pray for the USA.  God has blessed this country in so many ways, but this country has turned its back on the Lord.  Yes, He, and He alone, is in control.  Praise the Lord!
