God Blesses America - July 4, 2017
* Unless otherwise noted, all scripture quotations are from the New King James Bible.
Today is July 4th, 2017 and I want to share something with you that the Holy Spirit dropped in my heart recently for the nation of America as we celebrated the Fourth of July. Two hundred and forty-one years ago America was born. We celebrate the birth of America on the Fourth of July, which is also known as the Federal holiday of Independence Day.
Recently I’ve been praying for America and seeking the Lord concerning this mighty nation leading up to this Fourth of July. I have been asking the Lord for His heart for our nation; what His heart is for our America. I have been seeking the Lord’s times and seasons for America. One thing is for sure. God loves everyone in the nation of America, no matter what denomination, political affiliation, or ethnic background. God loves America and ALL of the people who make up this amazing and diverse nation. God Loves you too! (Jeremiah 31: 3).
As I have been seeking the Lord the Holy Spirit spoke to me very clearly. The Holy Spirit said, “Kevin, it is Psalm 4 for this Fourth of July for the nation of America.
Let me share a little bit of that psalm with you. It’s a psalm of King David. It says in verse 1:
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
As I have been traveling recently, most recently in New York City, I have seen in heavenly places the windows of heaven opening and closing over cities and regions in America (Malachi 3:10). And I believe with all of my heart that America is in a season when the windows of heaven are opening up over this land. God is not only hearing our prayer but He is answering our prayers as well. If you are an intercessor you need to press into your prayer room and pray for our nation at this hour. Pray like never before!
In verse 2 of Psalm 4 it says:
How long, O you sons of men, Will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood?
I believe the tide has turned in our nation. In America we will see the Lord raise up a group of people who will stand on the word of God. The Lord is raising up a remnant who will call those thing that are good, good and call those thing that are evil, evil (Isaiah 5:20). God is going to raise up a holy priesthood, a royal priesthood, in the nation of America. These overcomers will be pivotal in bringing the Lord’s plans to pass in our nation today. They will be instrumental in turning the spiritual tide in America and beyond through their throne room intercession. We are on the cusp of turning the spiritual corner in America. Right now the windows of heaven are open and we can step into this dynamic of answered prayer.
In verse 3 of Psalm 4 it says:
But know that the LORD has set apart or Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him.
God is raising up an element—a remnant if you will—here in America, who will live a godly life and holy lifestyle. These set apart ones will walk in holiness. They will learn to walk upon the highway of holiness. It’s a key moment in the history of the nation of America. Now is the time for us to cry out to God. Because the Lord is listening and He will answer our prayers when we call out and pray to Him for our nation with clean hands and pure hearts. (No matter who you are, no matter what position you hold!)
Verse 4 says:
Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.
I’ve been doing that; resting in the Lord and waiting for Him to speak to me. I’ve been meditating about the different things that are unfolding at this hour in America. I believe that it is time for America. God will bless America again. America is now moving into a new season of fruitfulness and prosperity. Don’t allow petty mindsets, petty things, and petty people, and fake news pull you out of the presence and glory of the Lord. The Lord is transforming His people into overcomers. As we learn to wait upon Jesus to work in our lives and circumstances He will release transformation into our lives and into our spheres of influence.
Trusting in God
Verse 5 tells us:
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in the LORD.
It is time for America to put our trust in the Lord. Our currency says, “In God we trust.” We need to turn back to God in this great nation of America here on the Fourth of July. We need to put our trust in God Almighty again! Supernatural transformation manifests in our lives as we learn to fully trust in the Lord!
Verse 6 says:
There are many who say, “Who will show us any good?” LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
A New Season
America is entering into a new season this Fourth of July when God is going to shine His face upon America. The Lord is going to look upon us with favor and grace. The Lord will release fruitfulness and favor upon our nation and into our families if we can believe to receive it. We need to begin to call those things into full manifestation according to Romans 4:17. We need to intercede and pray for America. We need to decree that the Light of the Lord will shine upon our nation (Job 22:28).
Prosperity for America
Verse 7 says:
You have put gladness in my heart, More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
This verse speaks of true prosperity. Not financial wealth, but peace of mind. As we learn to truly put our trust in the Lord not only will the Lord restore missing peace, but He will also release a season of financial prosperity for America. Look for amazing testimonies of bumper crops and wine harvests.
Expect to experience out breaks of the Spirit of joy in the people of God. Look for new wine to be poured out in a greater way than ever before. Look for revival to visit the church in the USA. Pray that we will have wisdom to steward the coming outpourings of the Lord in Christ like humility and nobility. Look for salvation to pour out upon young people like the America experienced in the 1970’s during the Jesus Movement. Expect to see God raise up radical preachers endued with the power of the Holy Spirit who will spark a move of God across this nation. The Lord will begin the process of raising up young radical ministers similar to Lonnie Frisbee, who came out of Calvary Chapel in the early 1970’s. His ministry impacted a whole generation for Jesus Christ and continues to bear fruit even today.
Verse 8 says:
I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
The Lord is going to shine upon America. And for those who are really trusting in God, we are going to see the Lord protect us and keep us. God will make His face to shine upon us (Numbers 6:25). He is going to hear our prayer; when we call to Him, He is going to answer us. The Lord will be gracious to America. God alone can keep us in safety and peace. God alone is well able to keep America in safety and in peace.
As I have been praying about this, the Lord began to speak to me that it is Psalm 4 for America this Fourth of July. I believe that the Lord will lift up His countenance upon this land and God will bless America. God will bless America again. The nation of America is stepping into a season of fruitfulness. The Lord is going to hear our prayers as we pray to Him. The Lord we release grace and favor and answered prayers into various regions of America at this hour. Some people call this supernatural favor and heavenly grace “transformation”. Transformation will overtake to America.
A Spiritual Shift
I want to encourage you to pray for our nation. I want to encourage you to pray for our president, Donald Trump. He will continue to be instrumental in making this spiritual shift possible in our nation. Prayer was instrumental in placing our current president, Donald Trump, in office. The prayers of the American people were answered in the recent election.
Many news media outlets incorrectly predicted the winner of our recent presidential election. Most of the news media spun the news to report that the expected outcome of the presidential election was settled even before American’s votes were even cast. And it was not going to be Donald Trump whom they predicted to win the election. Many people woke up the day after Election Day to a surprise. We elected a new president and his name is President Donald J. Trump. It does no matter which political party that you belong to, please know your source and your only real peace is found in the Lord. The election of President Donald J. Trump is a great example of the power of answered prayer in America at this hour! Pray!
Pray for America Now!
Pray for our president, pray for your region, pray for your city. Pray for God’s will to be done. The Lord God Almighty, the Lord God of heaven is leaning over the golden banister of heaven and He is listening to the prayers of the American people right now.I want to encourage you as you read this that you pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). Pray for America like never before! And be assured that God is listening to YOUR PRAYERS at this hour.
It’s Psalm 4 this Fourth of July for America.
So, again, I want to encourage you to pray for this supernatural season to manifest in the nation of America.
So until next time, “May the Lord of glory bless you and make His face to shine upon you today”.
