Daily Bible Reading: Job 29 – 30
Verse of the Day: Job 30:20 – “I cry unto thee, and thou dost not answer me: I stand up, and thou gazest at me.”
Today we celebrate the birth of our nation – July 4, 1776. We have picnics, family get-togethers, fireworks, and other gatherings. We are proud that we are a part of the U.S.A.
Our heritage is based upon the Judeo-Christian ethic that our founding fathers brought into our union. We held the Bible in esteem; we sought God in our progression to freedom. Schools were established to teach His Word and truth. We are a nation based upon the One True God.
However, we have let much of this slip past us. Many of the afflictions we are facing today can be traced to our replacing God and His Word with man and his ideas. Do we wonder why it seems He is absent today?
Prayer: Father of man, we come to You today, may You have the place of honor You deserve. Amen.
