In the post, “Dissipation of a Nation”, the people turned
to idol worship instead of giving credit to God for all they had been given.
Written about were some lessons we can take from this passage which can be
applied today within nations or used by individuals. Many throughout the world
seem to think governments can best provide for needs even though governments have
a way of setting up roadblocks to productivity by setting up regulations that
are impossible to meet or enforce.
In the nation in which I live,
every state is different but united. Within the United States, some states
choose to do things one way and others choose to do things another way. Texas
has just a few natural lakes. Years ago, some smart people noticed that there
were many rivers in Texas but the water just ran into the Gulf of Mexico. During
the hot summers, the state would get low on water so they thought of the idea
of building damns along the rivers to make lakes that stores the water.
The point is that it’s important
to plan using the lessons taught by history. Some states never learned from
history; never built lakes to store rain water, and as a result, have to either
do without or barrow water from other states at a high price.
The Bible has many lessons
taught by history that the United States adopted to form The U. S. Constitution
as a guide to run the nation. Unfortunately, many have decided that it should
no longer be “One Nation Under God” so they’ve instructed to ditch the advantage
that history brings; going instead to the lead of a few unqualified bureaucrats
as the best way to the future.
Plan for Us is the best way. It’s been proven over and over again. This day
can be amazing because our growing faith can never be taken away or depleted.
The gospel message has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it that sets
us free and never let us down. Be inspired by the song The Way by Jeremy Camp.
