I want to make one thing clear today.  I stand before you and  God with the same humble attitude Winston Churchill exhibited when he in 1940, at WW II´s  outbreak,  took upon him the leadership.  He said, "I am your servant only!"

Indeed, in a real sense, I´m your servant too, much more than being  your president.  Some good people have felt that the outcome of the election, despite all its flaws for which I´m responsible, too, is the providential hand of God.  That´s the way I look at it after all, and I covet the prayers of you all that I may be governed by that hand. 
His majesty, king David, who was a greater leader than I will ever be, declares, "The earth is the Lord´s and its fullness" which I understand to mean: This great nation doesn´t belong to me, nor to the American people, nor to anybody else, but to the Lord.  I believe this was the feeling of our Founding Fathers.  One of them said,

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! 
( Patrick Henry)

If I get grace and wisdom enough to steer the administration vessel with you at home and on many a dangerous voyage in days to come, America may once again see true greatness, spiritually, morally and politically.  If, however, we fail here thinking that we may as well be our own God and our own devil,  we´ll be heading for disaster.

This means that we must be prepared for a new beginning, a new way of thinking and a  new behavior.  We must have the courage to swim against the tide and  take the rap in the world community when, for example, I´ve decided to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to honor this old city as the true capital of Israel.   I do so in reverence to God who has in the Bible called that country again and again "my land", and  Jerusalem has been named in that same Bible more than 800 times.  (In the Quran it´s not mentioned once!)

I´m sadly aware that the United States are not as united as we could wish.  However, if we set our priorities  right as "one nation under God", we can march on remembering the password of Oliver Cromwell more than 350 years ago, "Trust God, but keep the powder dry!"

May God bless the United States of America!
