Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged:
“For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
This act of courage and selflessness was as a result of realizing their God-given rights were being infringed upon. They had a faith and a vision for what life could be; a vision that led to the freedom we benefit from today.
We have enjoyed this freedom for over 200 years, however we are now facing the same predicament. The very Judeo-Christian principles that create the foundation of this nation are eroding away right before our very eyes. Slowly over time, a combination of lack of action by people of faith partnered with decisions made by impious leaders have attributed to this matter.
It’s not too late. It’s never too late. Scripture promises us that “With God all things are possible.” There are accounts in the Bible of an Angel of the Lord wiping out entire armies set against the people of God in one night, or God causing their enemies to destroy themselves as the people of God prayed to Him, fasted, and worshipped Him. When God is with us, who can be against us.
The key is choice. Make the choice today to pray for our nation and leaders, participate in/with your sphere of influence, and have faith that God can use you to bring reformation to this nation.
