Scripture Passage: Psalm 78:1-6
America did not just happen; America was a gift from God. However, it seems as though the virtues and values upon which this nation was built have been trampled. What legacy are we going to leave for the generation to come? What is the America of tomorrow?
It could look like Psalm 78. In this passage, God had blessed the nation Israel, delivered them from the chains of slavery, and brought them into a good land. Yet, they defiled the land, denied the Lord, and disobeyed the new law. If we want to avoid the judgment given in Psalm 78, we must heed to this ancient truth in today's world, following three practical ways.
First, we need to review our history:
Next, we need to renew our memory. As a nation, we have three evil principalities at work, trying to manipulate our perspectives. We see them here in Psalm 78:
Finally, we must reclaim our legacy.
Adrian Rogers tells us, “Not only is God our greatest hope, God is our biggest threat. And the nation that was born in 1776 must be born again or we will join the graveyard of the nations.”
The America of tomorrow depends on our decision to reclaim our legacy. We have to do the best we can with what we’ve got, every chance we get.
Our only hope is to review our history, renew our memory, and reclaim our legacy. For the sake of the generation to come, repent, and turn to God.
