July 4 – Independence Day - USA

Posted on Sun, Jul 3, 2016

God Bless America Many of our founding fathers held strong personal beliefs in the LORD God. Many of the men and women who colonized America did so in an effort to find a safe new place to worship God as their consciences dictated, without hindrance from any established government religion. They found what they were looking for here in America. When it came time for America to establish its independence from England, the Declaration of Independence was written. In it are some very strong words tying the rights of human beings to the existence of their Creator. The Bible says that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.” This is from the Old Testament and is found in Psalm 33:12. It referred originally to the nation Israel, but can refer to any nation whose God is the LORD. Our nation has been blessed by following the LORD God. God blesses our nation directly and indirectly. He blesses us directly because our country was founded by men and women who followed Him, and there are still many people here who worship Him and follow Him. He blesses us indirectly because the laws of our country were set up to reflect God’s Law which is given to us in the Bible. Following God’s laws, and His will for us, brings blessings. From the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
