I’m teaching one of my favorite Bible stories in Sunday School tomorrow. Something I read in the teacher’s manual caught my interest. It could be that Esther and her Uncle Mordecai had strong faith in God, or it could be they had strong national faith–faith in the importance of Israel itself. What matters is that God used them to glorify His own name and save His people. God was in control of all events at all times.
I often think America is a land blessed by God, and I often believe God intends to keep it His land, or He intends to cause a revival because why would He begin a land under God and then let it go to waste? The important thing is not that America is a great land. The important thing is that God is in control of everything that happens in America.
