Psalm 47:6-9 NIV
 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.  For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.  God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.  The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
Today, this 4th of July, as we celebrate patriotically the birth of our nation, let us remember that it is God who reigns over all the nations. He sets them up and takes them down according to His will. He is the one who appoints leaders according to His plans. Let us return to God and follow Him. He alone has the power and willingness to heal our land if we will just humble ourselves in reverence to who He is and seek Him. Let’s pray for America today. Let’s pray for repentance and healing. Let’s pray for our leaders, that God would give them wisdom.
2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV
 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Let’s humbly pray to God and seek His face. Let’s turn to Him today in faith and trust Him. Watch what He will do. For He is God!
Happy 4th of July from footstepsonthewater.com.
