We are blessed to be founded as a Christian nation. It was very unique how the founders looked to scripture to mold our nation and write our laws. There will always be enemies of God and the Bible that will try to get them removed. The good news is we still have the ability to openly worship in public and own a Bible. Many countries with dictators outlaw anything Christian. We in this country do not need to be so naive to think it can not happen here.(Remember the vote at the recent Democratic Convention to remove God from platform?). Do not take your freedom or your Bible for granted. Evil is always running around trying to destroy any mention of the name of God.
Even some main stream denominations have twisted the word of God to suit their needs. God will have the final say in the end. Church should be about growing in Christ and knowing him better. Our national motto is 'One Nation Under God' yet enemies of Christianity even have tried to remove that. There are atheistic groups who try to ban prayer at football games and other events. Jesus name holds power and perhaps these non believers know that.
2 Peter 3:9 tells us "The Lord is not slow concerning His promise not wishing any to perish but for all to come to repentance." In Proverbs 18:10 it says "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run to it and are safe."
Much chaos is going on in the United States today and in Middle Eastern nations. Many think the end is near. We are not to fear. In Mark 13:7 it says "When you hear of wars and rumors of wars do not be alarmed. Such things must happen but the end is still to come."
I always like to pray this verse from Psalm 68:1 which says " Let God arise and His enemies be scattered."
We in America who call ourselves Christians should memorize and do what it says in 2 Chronicles 7:14. It says " if my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land."
Psalm 33:12 reminds us "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." Galatians 6:7 says "Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap."
PRAYER: Thank you Lord that I can read my Bible without armed guards coming in and locking me up and shooting me. Forgive me when I have neglected daily prayer or reading your word. In it we find eternal life and strength to face everything. Help our leaders get into the Word of God. Thank you for freedom. Protect it Lord. In Jesus name.Amen.
