If you are a Christian you know God is in control at all times. God knows the beginning, middle and the end of our stories. Yet Christians also know the reality of Satan’s continual plot to exploit our lives as he tries to entice, manipulate, and yank us away from our faith in all that God is. And satan doesn’t limit his lure to individuals. He also attacks families, groups, businesses and governments–including the government of the United states.
Satan would love nothing more than for American citizens to completely ignore God’s call.
But, America will never allow evil to overcome. We have always worshiped and relied upon God as we acknowledge His power and holiness. In fact America originated with an agreement with God. It was created in 1620.
Since the formation of America, beginning with the Mayflower Compact, God has been an integral part of our history. But, like nations of old in the Bible, America too often gets prideful and ignores God. We become arrogant. We stop turning to the Bible for guidance and instead trust our own words over God’s Word.
The same selfishness happened among the Israelites, and history shows that didn’t work well for them. In fact their recklessness for God’s Word left them wandering in the desert for forty years. They were not allowed to enter the Promised Land. It was punishment to the whole generation who stopped believing in God’s power.
God gave Israel many chances to go back to following His word. But Israel did not heed the warnings. Finally, God allowed the city to be destroyed because so many in its nation forsook God and turned to paganism.
America, it’s important to remember and learn from the ancient history of God.
