Hebrews 11:33-34 “Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.”

God could have sent any of the heroes-of-the-faith from Hebrews 11 to current day America. He could have sent Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sara, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Israel or Rahab. For that matter, He could have sent Peter, John, Paul, Timothy, Silas, Lois, Eunice, or Stephen. Instead, He sent you and He sent me.

These heroes of the past did amazing things by being faithful. They fully relied upon God and watched Him work through them. Out of weakness they were made strong.

God has entrusted us to subdue our own kingdom – 21st century America. He could have sent others, but instead sent us. Through faith, we can do things just as marvelous as these heroes-of-the-faith. Without faith, we will continue to flounder while others subdue our kingdom instead.

PLEASE PRAY THAT, THROUGH FAITH, CHRISTIANS WOULD RISE TO OUR RESPONSIBILITIES IN MODERN DAY AMERICA. Only through faith can we subdue a kingdom badly in need of our influence.

SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that we’re far more interested in past scandals than solving today’s tough problems), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
