“Happy 4th, America! Bless God! – Now Think On This message by Steve Martin, Love For His People, Inc.

July 4, 2019
Greetings friends of Love For His People.
Before you head out the door for the 4th of July festivities – fun with family at the park, boating on the lake (Andrew Blade!), the annual local patriotic parade, or the big one in Washington, DC with our President, Donald J. Trump. speaking – take a moment to bless God for the life He has given us as a nation.
And yes, read this first too: America, Bless God! (Or when you get back home…)
Ahava and shalom,
Steve Martin

P.S. And…if you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, or within driving distance – come this Friday night, July 5, 2019, any way you can, to the first Friday of the month Strength For Israel gathering. It is being held in the main auditorium Barn at Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina. There will be a full worship team, Israeli-style dance, challah bread and candle lighting, and a great message spoken.
Now Think On This
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;” (Psalm 103:1-2, NASU)
Often you will hear speakers, especially politicians (who always seem to be campaigning) end their message with, “And may God bless America.” But this may not be as common as it once was, as many of them now no longer acknowledge the real God. Though some may still continue to speak of God publicly on occasion, when politically correct, I tend to think that privately their lives would tell another tale. Many of their actions and votes do speak loud and clear of their actual beliefs.
And it is not just those holding public office that want us to believe that they too believe in the Living God. Many other appointed or self-appointed leaders, including judges, teachers, public servants, businessmen, entertainers, and sports figures, the ones who seek the public’s following and attention, and get it, may speak of God, but the one they refer to is also not the real God. If whom they speak of truly was, then their actions would also prove to be much different than their words.
Am I judging? Yes, and you should too. If we don’t have any solid basis on which to determine what characteristics and lifestyles to uphold, then whatever we too stand on will be no better. For that, we also will be judged by the Almighty Judge.
But my purpose in writing this message isn’t to point out the faults and sins of others, but rather to make us stop and think as to what we are really listening to, who we are listening to, and what we allow into our minds, souls and spirits each and every day, knowingly or unknowingly. 
(Read the rest:America, Bless God! )

What say you about where you stand in God’s plan?
Are you fitting in? Do you care? Are you where you think you are, or where you think you should be?
These messages have been written to bring you encouragement, some further insight, and to help you get to where you, and He, wants you to be in the Body of Christ.
The Lord is putting His people together – both in Israel with the Jews making aliyah and with believers around the world finding out their place and purpose in congregations.
What Say You? offers inspiration on how we can then live and move in this life, to cause godly effect and actually, cause something positive to happen or bring about in our lives, our families, our cities, our workplaces, and our country.
May you be about His business, as He directs you in your going.
