I’m truly not a political debate type person, but I can’t help noticing the decline of moral values in our country. Throughout the last 50 years, our nation’s Godly heritage has practically become extinct. God has been removed, and our country’s foundational values are now unrecognizable.
America has been a tremendously blessed nation, our founding fathers were individuals who wanted religious freedom and wanted to worship God. However, we have turned our backs on God. Sin is accepted – even flaunted, and our society is trying to remove the Name of God and His Son Jesus Christ from everything possible.
What is remarkably interesting is God’s Words and our country’s beliefs are literally inscribed on government buildings, monuments and currency throughout the country. However, at the same time, the mention of God has been eliminated from our schools and curriculum.
The agenda of most political leaders is to completely erase God and Christian principles. Taking bold, unconstitutional measures to change laws is what they are doing best. As Christian Moms, we have been entrusted with raising the next generation of believers! Commitment to instill Godly character and values in our children is essential.
I saw an interesting quote the other day by Karl Marx, “Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily persuaded.” We are being controlled, manipulated and deceived, which infuriates me that our very blessed nation is literally throwing it all away over selfish desires. We have become victims of ignorance, claiming amnesia over God’s faithfulness in our pasts. Wisdom is gained through God’s Word as described in Proverbs 3:13. However, manipulating us to see otherwise produces a self-righteous nation that is slowly tumbling in the wrong direction.
Simply noted, our future is an extension of our past. If we don’t gain security in our current days, our future will be filled with uncertainties. The Israelites roamed the desert aimlessly every time they forgot God. What was suppose to be an eleven-day journey took 40 years! I want to remember His faithfulness! As a nation approaching another critical election, I pray we don’t wander meaninglessly down a path of destruction.
Our history makes us who we are today, as a nation, but also personally and spiritually. If we remember all the great and mighty things God has done for us, we will no longer be deceived. Today, we can proclaim His wisdom and begin to actively take back anything the devil tries to use against us.
Perhaps, we feel as if God is ignoring us. But, could it be that His silence is trying to point us back to His Holy Word? We must remember, God’s constancy does not equal God’s consent. Scripture provides the answers to all our questions – we just have to take the time to find them. How many times do your children come to you with a homework question, “Mom, I can’t find the answer?” And, what is your most popular response, “Did you read the book?” I don’t believe our nation has read “The Book.” If God’s Word was true then, His Word is still true today!
Pray for God’s divine guidance over our nation and presidential candidates. We have been awarded an amazing opportunity to share our beliefs, don’t let the roar of the crowd silence your voice.
