America... What's Happened to You?



I love this time of the summer when we celebrate ALL the freedoms we have as Americans. I even love the days of continuous fireworks going off day and night! You see, I am part of that “boomer” generation I agree with Lee Greenwood who sang “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.  And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me. And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend Her still today cause there aint’ no doubt I love this land, God Bless the USA!”

 

But I am concerned about where our great nation is going! Everywhere we look we see signs that tell us “To Make America GREAT Again!” but that is going to be difficult to do if we keep taking God out of all we know as a nation. Throughout history there have been times when our nation departed from God, but up until now our nation has always come back to Him. We have read about those times of great revivals that swept across our world. The “Great Awakening” which began in the mid-1700s. The “Second Great Awakening” that came around the early 1800s. And we all know that it is time for us to experience another “Great Awakening” in our country.

 

Our world has moved far away from God and at this point in time it doesn’t look like we are moving back to Him. There is not enough space in this article to examine what is going on in our society and without a moving of God in our land – it will only get worse. Henry Blackaby wrote in his book “Fresh Encounter”: Christians should not be surprised by the spiritual darkness around us. That is all it can be! Darkness is DARK.  The great problem is not with the darkness – the problem is with the LIGHT.  When the light shines, it dispels darkness. We are facing a growing spiritual darkness in our land because the light is not shining brightly!”

 

In Ephesians 5:14 the Apostle Paul writes, “Wake up you who sleep, arise from the dead and Christ will give you light.” Revival, spiritual awakenings, start with people just like us.  People who will get serious with God. This Independence Day will be an excellent time for us to bring the light that our world desperately needs.

 

Have a wonderful time of celebrating America!
