I tell folks in my public presentations that if they slept well last night, they are not paying attention. We are a Nation at risk. We are at risk from external threats (ISIS, Russia, Iran…) and internal threats (domestic terrorism, lack of respect for law enforcement, divisive elements). We must acknowledge this, and then take actions to protect ourselves, our Families, and our Nation.
I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. In 2 Chronicles 7:14 it reads:
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
As this scripture says, the first thing we must do as a Nation is to humble ourselves and pray to God for His strength, courage and wisdom to do the right things. We need His guidance in everything we do. We need His protection and grace, and we need His peace.
Then we must turn from our wicked ways. We must stop doing those things that we know we shouldn’t be doing, and do only those things we know we should. It doesn’t take long to review what is going on in our Nation and determine those things that are just plain wrong. Good people must stand up and lead our Nation down a righteous path
I know we can turn this around. I am convinced that we can ensure that our children and their children can enjoy the freedoms we have today, but only if we take action. We must get off this slippery slope to devastation and fix our problems. We can significantly reduce our risks and guarantee our Nation’s future. Let’s humble ourselves, pray, and turn from our wicked ways. Then God will forgive us and heal our land.
