Psalms 9:7-8 “But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.”

Colossians 3:25 “But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.”

The engraving on the Northeast Portico of the Jefferson Memorial includes the following:

“Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

While the context of the above is in relation to American slavery, it certainly applies more generally. With that in mind, Christians should tremble for our country. We should tremble for the future of a land that actively, even aggressively, invites God’s judgment. We should tremble with the thought that our children may grow up in a nation that has voluntarily removed itself from the protection of God.

God is just; His justice cannot sleep forever. PLEASE PRAY THAT GOD WOULD STAY HIS JUDGMENT WHILE TURNING OUR NATION BACK TO HIM. Indeed, we should tremble. That trembling should bring us to the one place we can make the most difference – to our knees.
