Nothing in this world can be done without Gods approval. If he sees a nation dedicated to serving others for no other reason than to do His will then that Nation will be deemed sacrosanct. It is quite simple to test. Think of some disagreement you hold close to your chest with
your spouse. Then think of the best arguements or plans you can devise
to change her attitude - when you have spent 2 or 3 weeks of months in
futile attempts at altering her position then leave it up to God and spend your time for 2 weeks or 2 months doing Gods will. Serving others treating them with compassion and love With no sliver of intention of changing her opinion. In a short time I am sure your
wife position will become surprisingly different in your eyes. God does miracles for those that really love Him.
