Psalm 118:23 “This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
The British quickly planned for evacuation (see previous two posts), though under constant threat of attack from the American position on Dorchester Heights. Occasionally, like on the night of March 9th, the rebels tirelessly bombarded the British positions providing further motivation for retreat. When the British were ready for immediate evacuation, the weather prevented even that.
Then on the morning of March 17th, 120 British ships departed Boston harbor in a full evacuation on a calm and clear day that allowed the colonists to enjoy a favorable view of the British departure. Of the British evacuation, Abigail Adams wrote “surely it is the Lord’s doings and it is Marvelous in our Eyes.” The colonists had boldly stepped out by faith and the Lord had intervened on their behalf. God’s advantage allowed the onlookers to marvel at Him.
Imagine the marvelous sight of America’s return to Christianity. Imagine the marvelous sight of a full evacuation and retreat of our adversaries as they recognize our God-given advantage. Yet, in order for God’s advantage to be apparent it requires us to prayerfully and boldly step out by faith for Him. The LORD’s doing will then be unleashed, and it will be marvelous in our eyes.
PLEASE PREPARE FOR AND PROMPT GOD’S MARVELOUS WORKS THROUGH PRAYER AND BOLD FAITHFULNESS. He is marvelous, and our prayerful faithfulness can enable us to be eyewitnesses of His doings.
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that we may face another ungodly presidential administration), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that some “Christian” leaders are endorsing ungodly candidates), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
