Daily devotional: Warning to America

Scripture
Let the tree of no other nation proudly exult in its own prosperity, though it be higher than the clouds and it be watered from the depths. For all are doomed to die, to go down to the depths of the earth. They will land in the pit along with everyone else on earth.
Ezekiel 31:14 NLT

Observation
I wish that everyone in America, especially leaders and those who have reached worldly success, would read the book of Ezekiel and take heed to its warnings. God has greatly blessed the U.S. Let us turn from our pride in our position and propserity, and humbly turn to our Maker. All blessings are from God, but destruction is coming for the nation who prides in itself and for those who cease to be a blessing to Israel.

Application
Seek God in humility, thank Him for His rich blessings, and keep perspective. Warn others. Hold Israel dear, treat them kindly, and be its helper.

Prayer
Lord, my fear is that the U.S. as a nation just continues down its path of pride and greed all the way to its destruction. Please create in us a new heart of worship to You. Turn us back to You as a nation and individually, O Lord God Almighty. Create a desire within us to continue being Israel's ally and helper. May we acknowledge You for all the blessings You have given us and not misuse our power or resources. May we be your tool to bless others and bring your message of salvation to the unreached people groups of the world.
