With the 2012 election a little more than a year away, we will likely hear many politicians in the upcoming days utter somewhere in their speeches, “God bless America!” Only God will know how many of these utterances will reflect a true desire for divine blessing on the U.S. versus mere propaganda to try to win votes from religious and patriotic voters.
Of those who will declare their desire for God to bless America, perhaps very few, if any, will have foremost in their minds what would constitute true divine blessing of America: “Unto you first God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities” (Acts 3:26). May God truly bless America by turning away every one of us from our iniquities!
