America was built on the foundation and knowledge that our freedoms are endowed to us from the Creator. It is odd to me that God is one of the last places we think to look for the restoration of our freedoms. We rally and cry out to the government, “Give us our freedoms back!” We complain to our friends and family and we moan in front of the television. For over a year, Tea Parties and like groups have toiled to petition the government, elect new leaders, and fight off bad bills. To date, the new leaders have betrayed us, the government ignores us, and bills get passed silently in the night. The more we fight, the more desperate we become, yet little has changed. People are now aware of the misguided leadership betraying our country but no one knows what to do.
America, pray! There is no greater authority then our God and there is no more powerful a tool than beseeching Him to save us. If our rights are given to us by the Creator and we turn from Him for our own selfish ambition, why are we surprised that He allows us to be led by wolves? We must once again turn our eyes humbly towards Heaven. There, God waits to redeem us and restore our freedoms.When we decided that God had no place in our lives, we turned in our God-given rights and traded them for lies spoken by power-hungry men promising us the world, if only we follow them. We believed that we had evolved past a “simpleton” need for and belief in a God. We thought that “We the People” wielded enough power to maintain our freedoms without God who gave them to us. We thought we were smart enough, wealthy enough, and powerful enough to take America into the 21st century alone. It only took 10 years to prove our folly. “We the People” were not empowered by our mass or our will. “We the People” were established “under God”. It is only under God that we as a nation are “indivisible with liberty and justice for all”.
It was under the threat of communism that the words “under God” were added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 to illuminate the fact that God gave America Her greatness. Why? Because communism says that man could make America great, that the goodness in us could create a better justice and liberty then God. Even as late as 1954, America still understood that God was the fountain of our freedoms and was not afraid to declare it to the world or to anyone who threatened Her sovereignty.It is no coincidence that God has been discounted by our leaders today. Many of us have been fighting hard to save our freedoms so that we can keep our God, but we have it backwards. We need to be fighting to keep our God so that we can save our freedoms. It is time that we stop playing games with politicians. If we truly want to save America we must remember our God. We must pray and beseech Him. It is time we hit our knees and take seriously the statement, “God Save America”.
