Yeah For Freedom
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12
This is not a happy anniversary day for many. Unless you were born before 2001 you should know this is the devastating date that terrorists took down the World Trade Center, crashed into the Pentagon, and a 4th failed attempt on the Capitol crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Similar to the attacks on Pearl Harbor no one saw this coming. Many think we are on the verge of another similar terrorist attack.
Evil forces do not like freedom. The United States has been a bastion of freedom since its' founding 237 years ago. There will always be those who try to weasel in and corrupt this land and tear it apart. Former president Abraham Lincoln said "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." In other words the enemy could be right within our own borders trying to destroy us.
We indeed have a right to speak up for freedom. "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing" was another famous quote from Sir Edmund Burke. How very true that is. Christians have a right to do what they can to preserve not only religious freedom but all freedoms. Now is the time to be in prayer more than ever for us to remain 'one nation under God'!
PRAYER: Lord we thank you for our freedom and for those men and women who served our country and paid the ultimate price with their life. Help us stand up for our freedom and speak out against tyranny. In Jesus' name. Amen.
