Like most (if not all) of you on this forum, I have been watching this nation go spiraling downward at an accelerated pace; especially since B.Obama has been sitting in the Oval Office.
I have also found myself praying, confessing my failures and sins, and lifting up our nation before God, in a manner such as I have never been led to do before; Confessing that we, as a nation, have turned our backs on Him and His Word, and asking for His forgiveness and mercy upon us; even though we have failed Him. (I was lead to read and re-read how Daniel prayed for his people and how he confessed His sin, then the sins of his people against God.)
I'm a firm believer in 1 Thess.5:18 and I stand on it's truth.
This brings me to my question: Has anyone seen God at work in our nation in a way which can only be described as His working, or doing?
I have no doubt that He is in control and that He is working, but not being as strong as I would like to be in my faith, I too have to cry out and say "Help thou my unbelief !"
In short, I really need some words of encouragement along with some examples (for lack of a better way for me to think of to say it).
I feel I should also add that I have been wondering if we, as a nation, are being chastened?
For the Word of God tells us that "He whom He loves, He chastens." (See Hebrews 12 and Revelation 3:19 for just a couple of examples.)
