vToday’s 333 Devotional: “What Made Our Country Great”
Sometimes it’s difficult to see God through what is going on in our world today, especially in America where the biblical principles upon which our country was founded are no longer the principles that are believed or that people live their lives by.
Over time we have forgotten where the freedom that we now take for granted actually comes from. Yes it has come from those men and women who sacrificed their lives to keep our country free and a democratic republic. But our freedom was really lost when we started to abandon our first love relationship with God, and when we started turning our back upon the faith that made us great.
As Election Day approaches, we are filled with apprehension about what the future hold for our nation, and what our nation will look like. And this is mainly due to our not being able to see the hand of God in all the turmoil and violence that has filled this great land of ours.
But God is working, and is bringing about His ultimate design for our lives, for His church, and for our nation. And therefore, the truth is that God is in control and moving our world in the direction that best fits this design, not to mention that we are today receiving His discipline for all the years that we have ignored and rebelled against His leadership and rule.
And so, what can we do? Well, we can start by praying. This, along with repentance has always moved the heart of God to be gracious and merciful. Further, we need to trust in God, that even in the chaos He is sovereign, holy, and faithful.
He is Lord, so I think that it is time as Christians start acting upon this truth, as we trust and obey, and give ourselves completely and wholly over to the Lord, who alone can turn this nation back to what made it great to begin with.
