A Birthday Card for America

As I remind you every weekend, I say it again today, Rest in the Lord. And may our nation rest in Him, too. ferree

Psalm 33:12-22 (NIV)

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people he chose for his inheritance. 

From heaven the LORD looks down
and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth
he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do. 

 No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.

A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, 
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, 
to deliver them from death 
and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the LORD; 
he is our help and our shield. 

In him our hearts rejoice, 
for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, 
even as we put our hope in you.
