I Peter 5:6-7 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
The Declaration of Independence ends with the following sentence:
“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.”
The Founding Fathers recognized that if they were going to be part of something as miraculous as the birth of a new nation like the United States of America, then they needed to firmly rely upon the Lord. They humbled themselves and cast all their care upon Him. The result was an exalted nation.
If American Christians today are going to be part of something as miraculous as the rebirth of our nation through widespread revival, then we need to firmly rely upon the Lord. We must humble ourselves and cast all our care upon Him. The nation will never be exalted once again unless we do so.
If you are like me, you yearn to be part of something miraculous in this land. Such a transformation won’t come from the magnificent works of our hands, but by the heavenly reliance of our hearts. PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD EMBRACE THE SAME FORMULA FOR NATIONAL EXALTATION AS DID OUR FOREFATHERS.
