Psalm 33:12

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.”  – Psalm 33:12



1.  “Returning” to a normal state of health, mind, or strength.

2.  “The action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost”

Recovery Road

1.  Recovery begins with us, not them.

2.  Recovery begins with a fearless moral inventory.

3.  Recovery begins when moral authority supersedes reflection as the value of choice among our national leaders.

4.  Recovery begins with a declaration of dependence!


1.  There is a growing discomfort among our nation’s leaders to publically acknowledge God, our dependence on God, or gratitude to God.

* We are listening to and obeying the will of the minority.

2.  In contrast to this, we have the remarkable story of the world’s wisest king (Solomon).

II Chronicles 6 and 7

Two nations that have ever started out with a prayer service acknowledging and owing their very existence to God!

1.  Israel

2.  The United States of America

II Chronicles 7:14 is a promise to Israel!
