United States of America

 

AMERICA – The Founding.

Romans 13:1 1  Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Isaiah 33:22  For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us.

 

AMERICA – The Beautiful.

Acts 17:26-27 26  From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. 27  God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.

 

AMERICA – The Blessed.

Psalm 33:12a  Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…

Genesis 12:3a  I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse…

 

AMERICA – The Journey.

Proverbs 28:2  When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order.

Daniel 4:17b  “… so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.”

Proverbs 29:2  When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.

 

AMERICA – The End.

Proverbs 14:34  Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.

Isaiah 59:12-15 12  For our offenses are many in your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities: 13  rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, fomenting oppression and revolt, uttering lies our hearts have conceived. 14  So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. 15  Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice.
