Appointed for the Job

In 1911, Ronald Reagan was born. In 1980 Reagan gained the Republican presidential nomination and became president in 1981.

He took office, and only 69 days after doing so, had an attempt made on his life when he was shot. He was quick to recover. Regan left office in 1989.

Here is an excerpt from one of his speeches during his administration: “To preserve our blessed land we must look to God…It is time to realize that we need God more than He needs us…We also have His promise that we could take to heart with regard to our country, that ‘If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Let us, young and old, join together, as did the First Continental Congress, in the first step, humble heartfelt prayer. Let us do so for the love of God and His great goodness, in search of His guidance, and the grace of repentance, in seeking His blessings, His peace, and the resting of His kind and holy hands on ourselves, our nation, our friends in the defense of freedom, and all mankind, now and always.

The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in Him for the healing of America. … Our country is in need of and ready for a spiritual renewal…”

Ronald Reagan was a great supporter of Israel; in fact he even told his children that he felt he might see the return of Jesus during his presidency and always believed God had appointed him by His divine hand to the President of the United States.
