INDEPENDENCE DAY


Today, we commemorate the United States of America's Independence Day. On June 11, 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, declaring the United States of America independent of the Kingdom of Great Britain. On July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Robert R. Livingston, and Roger Sherman, and the 56 delegates signed the Declaration of Independence; thus, the United States of America became an independent nation from Great Britain. The Founding Fathers of this nation believed the following: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." The Founding Fathers of this country believed in the equality of people because all mankind was created equal. They have godly principles in their hearts; as a result, it paved the way for this nation to be a nation under God. 

 

Although the United States of America is not perfect, God gave us the freedom to worship Him and study His Word without persecution. As a result, in the early centuries of this nation, we had many missionaries who went all over the world and preached the gospel. This nation produced countless missionaries who spread the gospel all over the world. There is no such thing as a perfect nation in this world, but the United States of America still gives its people freedom to worship Him. As an Asian American, I am proud to be an American because it gave me the freedom to be what I am as a believer in our Lord Jesus. It gave me opportunities that no other country in this world could give me. Many people come to the United States of America for selfish gain only or to try to make this country like the country where they came from. Still, the United States of America is a country that is independent on its own. God blessed this country because many people still believed in the Lord Jesus. 

 

As we celebrate the 4th of July today, let us pray for this nation. Let us pray for spiritual revival and that God may give us godly presidents, senators, and congressmen. Lastly, please pray that the churches of our Lord Jesus will continue to stand for what is truth according to the Bible.

 

Questions for application: (Think through these questions carefully, meditate on them while answering them, and let the Spirit of God speak to you.) In what ways that this country give me opportunities? Am I thankful to be in this country? Why is it important to pray for this country?

 

Write down all the worries you face today and lift them up to God.

 

Prayer:

Dear Father in Heaven, thank you for allowing me to be a part of the United States of America. You have blessed me so much in this country, and I pray that it will be preserved in your truth. I pray that you will give us leaders who honor You. I pray for the current president and government officials to know and believe in you that they make godly decisions. May you protect the coming presidential elections from corruption and violence. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
