America’s God-bestowed Destiny

God is about to move this nation into a great state of healing. Doesn’t it make sense that the Accuser, the enemy, would rise up and begin to point out the sins of the past? He’ll not only do that, but he will try to steal from us the good in our past.

He contends that we are not a Christian nation. He argues that we don’t have righteousness in our roots. He and unbelievers in the political far left would unequivocally state, “This nation was not raised up by God.”

Here is an excerpt from my book, Giants Will Fall, that references Karl Marx:

“No wonder secularists want to steal America’s God-given history. We shouldn’t be surprised that former President Obama once said we were not a Christian nation, contending that we were also a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation, an atheist nation, and so on. Karl Marx once said, ‘The first battlefield is to rewrite history.’ The demons in Marx knew the power of history. And demons today inspire anti-Christ forces in America to try and rewrite ourhistory, as well. As Believers, what we must do is stake our claim to the fact that God birthed America and we are in covenant with Him. If we war using this truth, He will fight for us and defeat the giants.”

It’s important to know that we have a God-given history. He raised up this nation. It’s also important to know the reason why. When Robert Hunt landed on the shores of Cape Henry in 1607, he made the following statement—prophesying, though he may not have called it that. He planted a cross on the beach and said, “The Gospel will go forth from these shores, not only to this land, but to all the nations of the earth.” This is God’s destiny for America. 

It was Israel that gave us the Gospel—the Messiah, Jesus, came from Israel. America was raised up and given the mantle to trumpet that Gospel and the message of Messiah. There has never been a nation with as great a destiny to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and of salvation. That is our destiny. Our primary destiny is not simply to be the strongest or the richest nation on earth; to the contrary our strength and wealth were given to us in order to fulfill our destiny.

“Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. … Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame. We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, Lord, because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him. … Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear Your Name.” (Daniel 9: 4-5, 7-9, and 19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Identificationally repent for the unwillingness of many to believe this nation was set apart by God for His purposes. Use the excerpt from Daniel 9 above.
  • Declare, “This nation was raised up by God.”
  • Say, “Satan will not steal from us the good in our past!”
  • Decree, “Secularists will not steal America’s God-given history!”
  • Proclaim, “The Gospel will go forth from America’s shores, not only to this land, but to all the nations of the earth.”
  • Worship Him who established us with such a wonderful destiny!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I come to you in deep humility and pray over America the prayer of Daniel from the book of Daniel, chapter 9: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. … Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame. We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, Lord, because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him. … Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear Your Name.” 

Thank You for Your forgiveness. We can therefore make decrees of Your promises to us! The United States of America was raised up by You. God, Your destiny for America is intact! Satan will not steal from us the good in our past! Secularists will not steal America’s God-given history! The Gospel will go forth from America’s shores, not only to this land, but to all the nations of the earth. In hope and faith, we worship You and thank You for these things, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

America is a nation established by God to trumpet the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
