God is at Work in America – Pray

StatueOfLibertyIn 1776 a restlessness was stirring in the American colonies. Fueled by increasing taxes, the colonies felt helpless against their mother country. In addition, as a result of the Great Awakening of 1720- 1745, People were tired of a dying religious institution and king telling them what to believe and how to worship. By 1960 they were getting more than angry at their relationship with England. The Revolutionary War began in 1775. In 1776, it was Thomas Paine who used a press to print a series of articles called Common Sense that rallied the colonies of American to throw off their yoke of slavery and be free:

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.”
From The Crisis, by Thomas Paine

Just as Luther did more than two centuries earlier, Paine’s publishing created a “swarm“ that rallied the demoralized American colonies and led to a free nation.

Today, again, America is restless. Fueled by high taxes that go to illegal aliens, immorality, greedy lawlessness, the absence of leadership, a broken Bill of Rights, and a failing church, a swarm arises again today that is united by the Internet and what’s left of a broken social media, and instead using the Internet to unite and build a new community of Jesus people that love, heal, believe, and lead.

We see crazy politics going on. We don’t see the White Knight. Or is there one? God is at work in all of this. If you don’t see it, ask God to show it to you, because He wants you to see it and your part in it. The greatest problem Jesus had with his disciples was their unbelief and lack of faith (Matt. 17:14-21)

Believe, pray, and then act!
