As we get ready to tell America Happy Birthday, I can’t help but think back on all the blessings we have. Our personal and religious freedoms are under attack every day yet we still have more freedoms than most of the world. I constantly see churches list the missionaries they support with the note that some aren’t listed because the countries they are in are hostile towards the Gospel and those who would share it. I hope it never gets to the point where American become so intolerant of the truth that our own preachers and parishioners must hide and meet in secret but it certainly feels like that is where we are headed. We must remember that 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us that we are in the shape we are in not because the lost are taking our freedoms but because we refuse to stand up for them. America is the nation it is because wise men were guided by God as they established it and brave men and women have paid and are paying the price for our freedom. If we wish to continue with all the blessings we have, we must also humble ourselves before God, pray and truly seek His face.
