The founding of a nation is a profoundly significant moment in history. And the founding of the United States of America ranks second only to the birth of Israel. As a nation, Israel issued from the heart of God. America began in the hearts of national heroes who loved the Creator God and sought a place where they could worship Him in freedom and liberty.
Who's to say that God didn't impregnate the minds of our founding Fathers with their insatiable desire for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Who could assert He was not the author of the thoughts they put to pen as they crafted the documents creating the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave? The unfolding of our national character has often underscored the truth that God is indeed blessing America.
Come on and sing it again:
"God bless America. Land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the Light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam;
God bless America, my home sweet home!
God bless America, my home sweet home!"
"If My people..."
With love for our Land and reverence for God who founded us as a nation,
Pastor Richard Orrell
