Resolution, Revolution And The River…
This morning I just had to revisit the day at the Caribou Court House declaring and decreeing In God We Trust. I believe this was a very important day for Maine. Thank you God for the river. This was a post I wrote about that day in July of 2016.
Good Morning Beautiful People…Declare And Decree In God We Trust
Good Morning Beautiful People…Wow, yesterday was an amazing day here in Maine. I attended a prayer time at the Caribou District Court House as a State Representative read the following Resolution. This took place across Maine at several court houses. Bob Emrich, a Baptist Pastor from Plymouth, Maine organized these events. This is what a State Representative read as we came into agreement. Oh, the power of agreement.

Last evening I attended a camp meeting at Whited Campground in Bridgewater, Maine. I wish I could tell you everything I witnessed there. It is true folks, it really is. The scripture in Zechariah 4:6 It’s Not By Might, Nor By Power, But By My Spirit, Saith the Lord.
Let’s thank Him today for pouring out His spirit on our dry and thirsty Land. Let’s thank Him that faith really does matter to our states. Declare In God We Trust over your state.
Father, thank you for your Word. You said in Job 22:28, You will declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
We here in Maine believe Your Word and Believe You, Oh God, are watching over it. Faith matters here in Maine, yes it sure does. I love the radio program Faith Matters In Maine. It’s one of the best programs on the airwaves. Thank you Lord for filling the airwaves with men and women of faith. Continue to bless them we pray.
We receive this declaration in God We Trust, yes we sure do. Thank you for showing yourself strong across Maine God, as only you can. Thank you that Maine will truly lead the nation(s). Amen
Have A Blessed Day Beautiful People, For this is the Day the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Enjoy the river Maine…The tide is rising.
