"A Salute to America: Stand and Pray for Our Nation and President"
Dutch Sheets, Colorado Springs, CO

After signing the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, founding father John Adams said the following to his wife, Abigail:

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more...

I thought about Adams' words as I watched the recent July 4th festivities in Washington, D.C. President Trump's "Salute to America" was the most well-done July 4th celebration I can recall. Non-political in every way, including POTUS' speech, the celebration simply recounted portions of our history and honored our service men and women. I'm sure Adams looked down with strong approval and deep appreciation.

Then came the naysaying critics. Actually, they came beforehand, mocking and criticizing the president's plans in advance. The "never Trump" crowd, the mainstream media, and the liberals in government hate our president with vitriolic passion. Not surprisingly then, they criticized the great celebration, after refusing even to televise it. While listening to their fact-less, shallow, hypocritical rants, I was reminded of the words of the great Martin Luther King Jr.: A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on an installment plan.

Though the influence of the "soft-minded" radicals is lessening—a welcome shift, indeed—their babble is still heard to a degree. It seems that President Trump, however, has become immune to their venom, which enabled him to stay the course and give America its greatest birthday party in our history. I, and many others I've spoken with, teared up at times.

One of those moments was during the singing of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. The military choir had the courage to honor our Savior by including the verse: In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, with a glory in His bosom that transfigured you and me. As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free... His truth is marching on.

I am not ignorant of America's flaws, past and present. However, I've never seen a birthday party for anyone in which people felt the need to include the honoree's shortcomings. To the contrary, they simply showed their love and appreciation by celebrating the birth of the recipient. Too much to expect from the haters of America's true roots, I suppose.

In spite of their disdain for this great nation, however, God is and will continue to turn us back to Himself and His purposes for us, and He is using Donald J. Trump as one of His instruments. We must pray for him and for America's turnaround to continue. In the words of Samuel Adams, John Adams' cousin and a leader in America's fight for freedom: We have appealed to Heaven for the justice of our cause, and in Heaven we have placed our trust.

Many of you know the story of the "Appeal to Heaven" flag, commissioned by George Washington to fly over our naval vessels and eventually our battlefields during the American revolution. Taken from the teachings of John Locke, a profound influencer of our founders, the concept behind the phrase was simply that when all else has failed, "appeal to Heaven" for your breakthrough. Our Founding Fathers knew our only hope of freedom was in God's providential help. So, they appealed to Heaven. (You can read of this amazing, seldom-told portion of America's history, and how God is resurrecting the flag and its message in my small book, An Appeal to Heaven. It is an incredible story.)

Following John Adams' encouragement of conducting great July 4th celebrations, he made a weighty statement that holds profound significance today:

I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means...

Indeed, the cost continues. Most of us will not be asked to lay down our physical lives for the sake of this nation's freedom, nor for its destiny of being a light and distributor of God's glory to the nations of the earth. But as Sam Adams referenced, we must be committed to the ongoing appeal.

Determine with me that you will stand in prayer for our president, and that you will intercede for America's destiny to continue unfolding. Let's ask and believe for a great awakening to sweep our nation and planet earth, bringing the greatest spiritual harvest in earth's history.

This last month was very different one for me and my husband Brian. We'd set aside three weeks to catch up on things at home but, as you know, things don't always go as planned. The Scripture actually says in James 4:14, "But you don't have a clue what tomorrow may bring..."

The Father's plans and our plans often differ from each other. If you want God to laugh just tell Him your plans! Jeremiah 10:23 says, "I know, Lord, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course."

God has a plan for us and He has a way of getting us on it. So instead of doing catchup during our time home, we ended up taking care of breakdowns. Most of our electronics (computers and phones) went on the blink, and we ended up purchasing new ones. Then we spent countless hours setting them up. Of course we'd forgotten most of our passwords for our apps and had to reset them all.

Just before all of our computers and phones crashed, I had a dream. In the dream the Lord said that He was going to give us a new operating system. I can't say that He didn't warn me, I just didn't know how literal the dream would turn out to be. So in the middle of setting everything back up, I heard the Lord say, "Surprise! What may seem to you like a setback is really My setup! I am setting you up for what I have ahead. You may like the old operating system because it was familiar and comfortable, and maybe you don't enjoy all this work right now, but you'll be pleased with the outcome. Everything will run much better, and you will happy in the end. So you have a choice. You can murmur and complain or you can do the work and thank Me because when you finish, you'll be better off."

You may be facing huge setbacks today in your business, in your job, in your family, in your life; but I say to you: What seems like a setback today is actually God setting you up for something better!


While all of this was going on around us, I had a vision of haywire. "Haywire" is a well-known word here in Kansas. It's a very thin wire used in baling hay. And if the baler doesn't work properly or the baling wire snaps while in the process of baling, you'll have a tangled mess on your hands. The term actually means to go out of control or to go berserk. Maybe you're feeling this way; your patience is wearing thin and you feel like you're about to snap. But God! God is here to assure you that things are working together for good! He has your back. He has a plan, and even though you may not see Him or you aren't experiencing Him right this moment, it doesn't mean He's not here for you. On the contrary, He's laughing at your enemy right now.

Psalm 2:4, "God-enthroned merely laughs at them; the Sovereign One mocks their madness!"

Any setback the enemy has planned for you God is going to use to set you up for something much better than you've experienced in the past! You're are in the midst of a God setup! (Photo via Unsplash)

Psalm 29:10-11, "Above the furious flood, the Enthroned One reigns, the King-God rules with eternity at His side. This is the one who gives His strength and might to His people. This is the Lord giving us His kiss of peace.

Right now I'm hearing the Lord say...(continue reading)
