FREEDOM IN CHRIST

 
Our freedoms in the United States of America are God given. No nation on earth is like this one having liberty and justice for all. But when there is liberty there will be evil forces trying to take it away from us. That is why Christians should be on their knees in prayer for this great land of ours. No other government was founded like ours on Biblical foundations. Those settlers who came over to America came so they could have a Christian society and worship God freely. But we can not take this freedom for granted as little by little forces come in and try to destroy it and educate us a different way.
 
The founders looked to the Bible when making the laws of this land. There is no mistaking when you visit Washington, D.C. that this nation was founded to serve God. Nearly all the monuments say "In God We Trust." But anti God and anti Christian forces have permeated our land in the last century trying to remove God from everything. Prayer and the Ten Commandments were prominent in schools in the 60's when I was growing up. Things were much kinder and gentler then so to speak. But evil is always looking trying to take freedom away and can trick those not informed. In 2 Corinthians 11:14 it says " But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light." In 1 Peter 5:8 is says "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." We  have to be on our guard.
 
2 Corinthians 3:17 says "Where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom."  There are voices out there today trying to say America is not a Christian nation and  we need to tolerate all religions. When you take God out of society it will fall. Look at examples all around the world. You can not separate being a Christian with caring about your country. We are so blessed in the United States of America and forces are out there trying to take these blessings away. Sometimes we can become complacent when we have things too good and if we do not wake up and do our part for freedom we may one day live in a regime and not a free land. It can happen. We are in spiritual warfare in this country as Satan does not like liberty and freedom and he will try any means and any trickery to destroy it and take us captive.  John 8:32 says "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free."
 
Psalm 33:12 says "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage." We will not continue be blessed if we do not get on our knees and cry out to God to save our land. Some say 'don't talk to me about politics." Well 'politics' is all over the Bible. I have cited some of the verses right here. The citizenry has to be aware of things going on and do more than 'just pray'. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says " 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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." May God bless America and heal our land and its' people.
 
PRAYER: Lord wake us up to the freedoms we have that we may lose if we are not on our knees in prayer. Father we thank you for living in such a great land. I thank you that the truth can set us free. Father help me remember to pray for my nation and its' leaders daily. Help me father to pray for freedom and liberty to continue to bless this land. Forgive me Lord if I have ever taken my freedoms for granted. In Jesus Name. Amen.
