12 years ago on this day in the United States the worst attack on our
soil occurred when a terrorism attack took down the World Trade Center and put a gaping hole in the side of the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Thousands of lives were lost that day. For months afterward it seemed like the goodness of our populace came out. People were nice. Good deeds were done. Many returned to church. But slowly the American flags came down off car windows and homes and life returned to the same day to day things. Patriotism no longer was in style. Terror was in the forefront of the news. New rules were in place at airports and federal buildings. Life did not really return to normal.What we needed to do then is get serious about how this nation is falling further from her Christian roots. A country can not succeed when it starts removing God and when it's moral compass sort of goes tilt. When man tries to be more powerful than God look out. Remember the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9. Take a moment and read it. These people sort of got "too big for their britches" so to speak. We are not God and we are not to act like it.
Deuteronomy 8:18 reminds us '
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.' When people become arrogant and haughty look out as God may humble you.Today we need revival. We need prayer. We need salvation. We need to repent or turn from our sins and confess them to God. Let me end with a familiar verse to some which is 2 Chronicles 7:14 which 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.'PRAYER: Lord God we need healing and we need a change in heart in our land. Too many are going their own way without any regard to you. We cry out to you Lord for people to repent and follow you. Forgive us for our arrogance. In Jesus' name. Amen.
