Humble

Humble

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, because He cares about you. First Peter 5:6-7

In those early years our young nation had no other choice than to cast all our cares on God, but now; now there is our great power, wealth, and uh were did those things go?

If the last few years have taught us anything I hope they have taught us that we should never depend upon our strength, get so important that we loose our humility, and forget where we are from and what our debt to God is all about. Just remember we are not too large to fail. We are not so powerful that an idiot with explosions tied to him going off in a mall could keep us all home for months. When our nation was young we longed for the careful eye and presence of God. Remember when Gen. Washington had little to feed his army, nothing with which to pay them, no clothes to keep them warm in the cold of the winter and little hope of giving to them the joy of victory? He spent the night in prayer, could it be that we need to return to the God of our founding fathers to the God of our childhood, to once again give Him glory, and to humble ourselves before Him.

I love America, we are the greatest nation the world has ever known, but we are not so great that we have outgrown our need of God.
