Mark 9:23-24 “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
Joel 2:21 “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things”
Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible”
Dr. Benjamin Rush was a prominent Founding Father and signatory of the Declaration of Independence. He recalls a conversation with John Adams as follows:
“Upon my return from the army to Baltimore in the winter of 1777, I sat next to John Adams in Congress, and upon my whispering to him and asking him if he thought we should succeed in our struggle with Great Britain, he answered me, ‘Yes – if we fear God and repent of our sins.’”
Indeed, after the Revolutionary War victory, Rush acknowledged God’s great hand in the results:
“I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as satisfied that it is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament.”
Rush and Adams both knew that nothing was impossible with God, even a successful revolution against a mighty British world power when the situation looked bleak. Their secret was that they needed God to help their unbelief. If they feared God and repented of their sins, they knew that all things were possible.
The power that our forefathers harnessed in the late eighteenth century is the same power that we can harness today to see the impossible come to reality. It is the same power that can enable a nation that proudly and defiantly has their back towards God to turn around and humbly embrace God. Nothing is impossible with God, even when the situation looks bleak. Our secret needs to be that we ask God to help our unbelief. If we fear God and repent of our sins, then all things can be possible.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO FEAR GOD AND REPENT OF OUR SINS. Can we win the culture wars of today? Yes – if we fear God and repent of our sins.
