I Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

The Bible makes it clear that the Lord is ultimately and eternally trustworthy.  Indeed, He desires that our faith would lead us into His caring arms, both for our temporal well-being and our eternal well-being.  Do today’s Christian Americans rely upon the Lord like we should?  Christians in early America certainly did so, and their faith was rewarded with protection and provision.

The authors of the Declaration of Independence staked their lives, their fortunes, and their reputations on the concepts contained in that formative and foundational document.   They did so eagerly and willingly, knowing that they were following God’s will and confident in the Lord’s accompanying presence.  The closing sentence of the Declaration of Independence vividly demonstrates this thorough trust in the Trustworthy One:  “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.”

Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor remain as secure in the Lord’s hands today as they did during our nation’s birth.  PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD TRUST COMPLETELY IN THE LORD FOR PROTECTION AND PROVISION.  Our firm reliance on Him will be fully rewarded and faithfully remembered.
