When I look around 21st-century America, I am concerned that key essentials of the uniquely American character have been lost over the last few decades. This once great land is no longer that “shining city on the hill” that inspired President Reagan and was a beacon for millions around the globe.
“Can-Do” has been replaced by “Maybe”. Our inspiration to greatness has become wishful thinking. Greatness requires risk-takers to dare the impossible. Success is seldom “overnight”.
Fear has replaced faith and caution over “full speed ahead”. Are we still brave enough to be free?
Empower me to be bold in my faith. Help me place my trust in You rather than men. Let me restore faith to a world fearful of the enemy. Let me lead Your chorus.
Scripture: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will surely help you; I will uphold you with My right hand of righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
