As I was reflecting on Independence Day and what it all means I had a bit of a new way of looking at it that I wanted to pass along, for whatever it might be worth. Here it is: In the Declaration of Independence the signers declared "a firm reliance on Divine Providence". You might say that, as they were declaring their independence from Great Britain, they were at the same time declaring themselves "in dependence" on God.
Ronald Reagan similarly said, "If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under." In other words, our freedom and prosperity hinges upon our being "in dependence" on God.
For 65 years America has been engaged in an experiment in godlessness that has brought us to the brink of utter ruin. If our beloved nation is to be saved she must once again be "in dependence" on God. May we each do all that we can to bring that about. God bless you and God bless America and have a wonderful Independence Day.
