Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. It truly is a time of reflection on how blessed we are as a nation! One huge blessing is the freedoms we have as Americans: freedom to vote, freedom of speech, freedom of choices, freedom to worship, freedom to carry a Bible, and freedom to witness to name a few. Let’s remember that these freedoms came at a high price. I thank God for all of our military branches, and the men and women who give so much to protect the freedoms we now enjoy. I believe with all of my heart that the United States of America is still the greatest country and best place to live in the world. I still believe that America is a Christian nation in spite of the problems and difficulties we face in the 21st century. May God continue to bless our nation, may we continue to put our trust in Him, and may we continue to pray for all of our government leaders, military personnel, missionaries, and pastors of this great nation!
