THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

President Obama is still saying, “Yes, we can.”

What he hasn’t said is: Why we HAVEN’T!

1 Chron 29:11
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine;
thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
KJV

In 1787, the Constitutional Convention had been meeting for five weeks.
There was an awful deadlock concerning state/population representation.

Finally, Ben Franklin arose to say in part:
"I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men.
And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?"

Today, we might ask the question, “Can this empire CONTINUE without God’s help?”

It is time we realize that the first amendment bars government from establishing or promoting religion.
The first amendment does NOT bar religion from influencing government!

It is time we surrender the powers that be to the power of Almighty God through earnest, repentant prayer!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Yes. President Obama is right......."Yes, we can!”
It does not require the entire nation to enter prayer.
It requires God’s “people” to enter prayer.

YES! We CAN!
Will YOU?

Love ya,
Bruce
