A Mediation Meditation for Our Nation

Once upon a time, a little guy grew into a giant,
He credited God with his mouth but his heart turned proud and defiant

By the favor of God he surpassed others in countless ways
He ascended to American idol status and relished the world’s praise

He became enamored with his own image
He failed to sincerely admit his blessings were by God’s gracious privilege

He desired in every way to take the lead
But, the will of God for himself and others, he began to scorn, slander, and supersede

He thought he truly could go it all alone
He understood not that no man or nation could make it on his own

When he began to progressively separate from his Architect
He began to experience the woes of walking in sin when God’s word, he did reject

His pride became his Achilles’ heel
He cannot bargain, brawl, or buy his way out of his imminent ominous ordeal

Pride goes before a fall, you see
The pride of a person or a people robs God of His glory

When a man or nation robs God
They invite upon themselves correction from His chastening rod

No one or nation is immune from his judgment’s hour
It’s wise for all to reverence God for His kindness, righteousness, and sovereign power

For that man or nation who grows increasingly God devoid
Shall reap what he has sown and for his rebellion risk being destroyed

To be spared, saved one must sincerely repent
May we personally and cooperatively, honor Jesus as Savior and Lord—
for us His blood was shed, His body rent

If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned. And if I announce that I will plant and build up a certain nation or kingdom, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless it as I said I would. Jeremiah 18:7-10 (New Living Translation)

Godliness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34
