Happy Fourth of July!
My family and I wish you and yours a blessed day of celebrating the hard-won, God-given freedom we still enjoy in this nation. America has been and remains a unique experiment worthy of our gratitude and commitment.
But, where it’s been said that “freedom is never more than one generation from extinction,” it has often seemed far closer to slipping away in recent years.
That’s why you cannot tell me that the Lord is not actively intervening in the public square.
While the trends of freedom have not been positive for decades, we have seen the Lord spare us from seeing a dramatic loss in recent years. Can you imagine the devastating effects a President Hillary Clinton would have had on your freedoms? What about a Governor Stacey Abrams? Their radical leftist views would have eroded the right to life, worship, and educate children according to their unique needs.
Money and polling indicated that we were careening toward those devastating outcomes. Instead, the Lord saw fit to elect President Trump and Governor Kemp. Praise Him!
Based on history and Scripture, we can conclude that we won’t always receive such blessings. But, a review of history, of Scripture, and these recent victories reveal a God who is active, intentional, and gracious in preserving our freedom.
Let’s take advantage of this momentum!
Use this time to claim ground for life and freedom in the public square. Get involved in the culture. Share the Gospel. Use the freedom the Lord is taking steps to preserve.
May you and your family enjoy this special day and be renewed by this celebration of our freedom!
