Daniel 9:18 “O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.”
Speaking to President Lincoln about the Civil War, a group of ministers boldly proclaimed the following: “Mr. President, our cause will prevail, because the Lord is on our side.” Lincoln wisely responded: “Gentlemen, the question we should always ask ourselves is: ‘Are we on His side?’”
This nation will not prevail over the challenges of the day because the Lord is on our side. Instead, we will only prevail if we are on His side. Christian Americans will not prevail over ungodly forces because the Lord is on our side. Instead, we will only prevail if we are on His side. Conservative Christians will not prevail against cultural progressives because the Lord is on our side. Instead, we will only prevail if we are on His side.
We must spend far less time assuming that God is on our side, and far more time ensuring that we are on His side. We must not presume that God will side with us, and instead strive to perfectly side with Him. We must not assume His alignment, but instead assure our alignment.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD PERFECTLY SIDE WITH GOD. Let us constantly assess ourselves with the following question – are we on His side?
