Today is the day we set aside to honor our country, but we see a country in turmoil. We have been told in the Word that unless God's people are faithful to His statutes and His desire and His path that He has set before us, there will be no blessings. His way is the only way to the joy of the Lord.
I believe it is part of Satan's plan that we waste time on the things of man. Just think if we locked onto the things of God and followed His plan and His lead instead of getting worked up and misdirected by the things of man.
There has never been a more uncertain time in which to live, at least not in the memory of almost everyone alive today. But there is a peaceful, protected place for us all, and it is open.
In the years I have been at this church I, personally, have struggled. My health has gone down and my personal life has been a struggle. But I feel that God has given blessing after blessing. We often look in the wrong place for blessings.
