A Delightful Land

Dust off your Bible, sit down, and take a few minutes to read chapter 3, verses 6 thru 18 of Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament. Please read it before you continue with my writing.


Everything promised in this passage is predicated upon verse 6 where God declares “I, the Lord, do not change.” If this is true, then what He promised Israel 2,400 years ago through the prophet Malachi, is just as true NOW for America, as it was THEN for Israel! If we, God's people, "return" to Him and “offer” our hearts’ devotion, then we will again prosper as a people and "all the nations will call us blessed, for ours will be a delightful land.”


A delightful land. That is the unique, blessed place from which we are falling. But reestablishing this exceptionalism is not impossible.


In the busyness of daily life, and the emotional and mental toll inflicted by the trepidation and confusion of these days, it is easy for us to lose sight of this essential, foundational element in the process of America’s rescue. But our accountability is clear. If we pause daily to commit ourselves to God, to place Him above all else; to offer our lives as instruments that He can use to further His purposes in this life, then He will respond and alter the course we are on.


Whether we follow through or not will determine if verse 18 becomes a reality… “And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.”

We each have a choice.
