America - Song Insight

written 1999 MP3 RA WMP

The first phrase that came to me for this song is, "So much sin, so much evil, my heart cries for these blind people." I remember walking in the airport close to when I wrote this and thinking, "all these people don't know Jesus, they are missing so much." And I had a deep love for all of them. I hope they all find God, and follow Him.

All you people out there, there is so much more to life than you or I know. God want's to make you prosperous, He wants to make something important out of your life. He wants you to make a powerful impression on eternity. He has a plan for your life. He has ordained you for your ministry. Just like John the Baptist, he was ordained of God to tell of Jesus Christ coming to earth. See Luke 1:13-17,39-45...

13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

He was telling of Christ's coming even before he was born...

39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy.
45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

So, you need to ask yourself, "am I fulfilling what I was ordained to do?" If you are not fulfilling God's plan, you need to have a revolution. You need to get saved if you aren't (read God's Simple Plan of Salvation). If you are saved, you need to turn around and confess your sins, all of them. Because Isaiah 59:2 says, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." It's like walking around with your fingers in your ears, a hand over your mouth, and a hand over your eyes. You will not see, or hear God, and He wont know you are trying to talk to Him because you have your hand over your mouth. So take your hand off your mouth (confess your sins), and after you do that, ask what He wants you to do. He will tell you what your life is meant for.
