God Keep Our Land, Glorious and Free

Righteousness exalts a nation . . .

. . .  but sin is a reproach to any people.  Proverbs 14:34

"I will make you a great nation, I will bless you and make your name great, and you shall be a blessing." Genesis 12:2

He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.  Psalm 72:8

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD . . .

 . . . and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.  Psalm 33:12

"In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.  But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him."  Acts 10:34b,35

In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life . . . and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.  Revelation 22:2

"Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight.  And consider that this nation is Your people."  Exodus 33:13

Remember me, O LORD, with the favour You have towards Your people; oh visit me with Your salvation.  That I may see the benefit of Your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that I may glory with Your inheritance. 
Psalm 106:4,5

"For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?  And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law, which I set before you this day?  Only take heed to yourself and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life.  And teach them to your children and your grandchildren . . . Deuteronomy 4:7-9

Listen to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation;  for law will proceed from Me, and I will make My justice rest as a light of the peoples.  My righteousness is near, my salvation has gone forth and My arms will judge the peoples, the coastlands will wait upon Me and on My arm they will trust.  Isaiah 51:4,5

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light, who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.  1Peter 2:9,10

And they sang a new song, saying: 

 "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals;
For You were slain and have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation
And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth."
Revelation 5:9,10

HIs name shall endure forever;  His name shall continue as long as the sun;  and men shall be blessed in Him;  all nations shall call Him blessed.  Blessed be the LORD  God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! And blessed be His glorious name forever!  And let the whole earth be filled with His glory, Amen and Amen. 
Psalm 72:17-19

  1. [Show me Your way that I might find grace in Your sight...

    In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life . . . and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2]
    So absolutely amazing the Love the Lord has towards His people! Andrea the photo and verse with the big maple leaf of the flag slayed me !
    Love Love Love it!

  2. Andrea you have done a GREAT job with this blog - excellent choice of photos for each verse. Exceptional!!!

  3. showing your patriotism – with Scripture – that is 4786 shades of awesome. Really – brilliant!

    Down here in the states we really heart three countries – we feel a bond to three countries – England, Australia, and Canada.

    Things are changing though – as a lot of Latinos are pouring in from south of the border - demographics are changing – right now – my generation, and your generation, that's the way we feel.

    And it's funny how we celebrate the freedom of our nations on dates so close to each other – I wonder if that was part of some plan?

    Anyway – I hearted this! God bless you Andrea.
