You may look around at the situation in America and wonder, "Where is God?" Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of the famous evangelist, says that He may be withdrawing Himself.
She wrote in her blog this week, "'Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found. Psalm 32:6.' The Psalmist implies that there comes a time when God cannot be found. A time when God hides Himself. A time that I believe may have begun in America."
Lotz continued, "Our nation is in a mess. Why? Could it be because America is losing God's blessing? His favor. Could our sin be provoking His judgment? Judgment that is not necessarily in the form of a nuclear dirty bomb, or another ISIS attack, or an economic collapse. But a Romans 1 judgment as God backs out of our national life and turns us over to ourselves."
She compared America to ancient Judah's rebellion and warned: "God warns a nation that judgment is coming. He doesn’t want any to perish. But if a nation does not heed His warnings, He unleashes His anger and there is nothing—no one—who can prevent it. If God would judge His own beloved nation of Judah, why would we think America could escape?"
Lotz, like her famous brother Franklin Graham, advises that everyone sincerely seek the Lord for help and not look to politicians for salvation. "So… if we are coming under the judgment of God–if He is giving us over to ourselves, removing His blessing, protection, and favor–the solution will not be found in politics or the economy or the military or technology. The solution will be found on our knees as we humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face, and repent of our sin. Then plead for Him to return to us as we return to Him."
What do you think of Lotz's warning? Do you fear that we may be coming under God's judgment? Will you post a prayer for America in the Comments? Thank you so much!
