'How Can We Get God to Fix America?' Isn't the Right Question
American flag Here's a question asked often yet basically off the mark: "How can we get God to fix America?"

Instead, we should be asking, "What is holding back the presence of God, which truly can transform America?"

We need to recalibrate our thinking so that our focus is not so much on our comfort or us winning our cities for God as it is the honor of God and hosting His presence, which ultimately brings the change supernaturally. As Tony Evans once said, "Multitudes want God to bless America. Few truly want one nation under God."

Everything must start with God, not the blessing or our bailout. That's where Nehemiah started in the magnificent rebuilding of the walls of the city in his day. We must follow suit if we are going to see the breakthrough for which we long.

This is not clever semantics or super-spirituality. Amidst the encroaching darkness, we need more of His light!

"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you" (Is. 60:1-4, NIV).

George Otis Jr. has traveled the globe, documenting places where God's presence has invaded a city and brought about genuine revival/transformation. If you have ever watched any of his videos portraying what happens, you will be both impressed and motivated. It's the real deal!

Days ago I participated in a nationwide prayer call where we heard from Dave Kubal, the president of Intercessors for America, a national ministry of which I've been a board member for 38 years. We serve with George for transformation of cities. read more
