Does God Ever Use Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe?

For those who may be younger than I am, and who don't have a clue what "Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe" is, I will try to explain.
For those of you my age and older, I know you will probably fondly remember this childhood favorite.
Basically, "Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe" was a counting rhyme the neighborhood kids used when we were growing up in the 1960's, to pick one of us to be "it", or to decide who got which abandoned baseball cards left on the school playground. If memory serves, this was the way the kids on Long Island said it, back then:
"Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe
Catch a tiger by his toe
If he hollers, let him go
My mother said to pick this one
Y-e-s- spells "Yes" and you are it!"
We would point at each choice with our finger, as we went through the rhyme; being stuck for better or worse with "it", when we ran out of words.
It was a silly and random way of deciding things. An easy way of making simple choices; one which we outgrew when we became more responsible.
Are We More Responsible Today, As Adults?
How do we as Americans choose what is in our best interest, and what is not? Surely, we have some better formula to use than that of our children.
Adults have life experiences, wisdom, reference materials, and the benefit of a education to help them select and choose the best possible path among many choices, right? 
Looking at the state of our nation, I don't get that sense. We as adults, are NOT making the best decisions, based on what is in our best national interests. 
I see people like Barney Frank, pushing the passage of H.R. 2981 or ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act). This bill, if passed, would force the majority of America's God-fearing employers to violate their religious beliefs, and hire people based on "gender identity" (transgendered) as well as "sexual orientation" (homosexuals).
It would trample the American Liberty of Freedom of Religious Expression, and turn out to be an extremely terrible "choice" for our country. When people who can't figure out if they are a boy or a girl, whether they are supposed to like boys or girls, what color underwear to put on, or what restroom to use, start lobbying Congress more than the God-fearing Christians and Jews; we as a nation are headed for big trouble! When the people we send to Congress can no longer consistently figure out right from wrong; we need to start replacing them before our country collapses.
"We the people are the rightful master of both congress and the courts - not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." --Abraham Lincoln
So how do we figure out Right from Wrong? How do we know when our way is right and another's way is wrong? Simple, Just check with God!
God's Way of Choosing Right From Wrong:
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to him, for he is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20) 
God says that we must love Him, obey Him, and cling to Him, so that we will have a long life in the land that he promised to give us as a blessing.
Choosing right from wrong starts with staying close to God, in a relationship of obedience to Him. We as Americans, need to remember that God is a faithful God. But we must also remember our obligation to live as a holy and righteous people, chosen by God.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom he hath chosen for His own inheritance. (Psalm 33:12)
The word "Deuteronomy" means "repeating of the law", and reading the book, so named in the Bible, reminds us just how critical it is for God's people (One Nation Under God - That's us folks) to keep God's Word always on our hearts and minds, on our lips and in our laws, so that we will be positioned to receive God's Blessings, instead of God's Curses.
I see many well intentioned people lately, trying to rally support, in an effort to organize resistance movements, and confront those who contribute to our national moral and financial decline. Some are attempting to do this without God's aid. Others are hesitant to mention God's name or publicly pray for His Providence, because it may "offend" some people or "turn them off". Be forewarned, God does not compromise with Truth. Neither will God continue to sustain this nation if we reject Him!
People who are offended by the mention of God's name, are part of our problem, and will only cause us more problems should we cater to them. Like the United States Marines, God prefers quality individuals over quantity. He will do more with less!
As One Nation Under God, America has historically placed a priority on faithfulness to God's Word. Our founding fathers established this nation on the Word of God, and claimed God's Blessings:
"I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. (Genesis 12:2-3)
America claimed this promise, and all the world was blessed through us, for a time. Today, we are losing these blessings. Almost everyone in America is sensing it! We are losing our country, as it dissolves before our eyes, into something God and our founding fathers never intended.
We must again make it a national priority, to pass on our cultural and spiritual heritage, onto the next generation.
"And you shall be holy unto Me, for I am the Lord am Holy; and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine." (Leviticus 20:26)
If we do not quickly stand up for what is right, in the eyes of our God, then we will soon become victims to those activists manipulating our laws and government policy. If we do not become actively involved in protecting and preserving our culture and our heritage, we will soon be muzzled and punished, should we dare disagree with the new godless masters of our changed society.
America needs to get right with God again! Americans need to start praying to God again, asking for His intervention in our nation's affairs.
"If my people, who are called by my name, will 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." (II Chronicles 7:14)
God never uses "Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe" to choose between right and wrong. Neither should we.
God's Word in the Bible, should be sought for clarification, when in doubt.
The Law of God should be in our hearts, on our minds, and on our lips. It should be the standard by which every decision is weighed, and every choice is made!
Join us on the last Saturday of every month, as we gather together in cities across America, to pray and ask for God's forgiveness on our nation, and for God's Healing Hand upon our country.
May God Continue To Bless America!
For God and My Country,
