OUR ONLY HOPE IS YOU, JESUS
When you think about it, it is incredible how much of a miracle America really is. Patrick Henry said, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians. Of the 61 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 27 had seminary degrees. Eight days after signing the Declaration of Independence, printed on the side of the Liberty Bell, was this quote from Leviticus 25:10: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” George Washington said, “It would be impossible to govern rightly without God and the Bible.”
There are those today who diametrically oppose the thinking and intent of the founding fathers and are working to change the country, potentially destroying the freedoms we have treasured. Psalm 33 teaches us where our hope should rest.
