American Revolutionary War

The success of the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War came about through men who were raised up by God for this special purpose. You must read and study the Declaration of Independence to feel its inspiration. You merely need to study history to recognize that a group of fledgling colonies defeating the world’s most powerful nation stemmed from a force greater than man. Where else in the world do we find a group of men together in one place at one time who possessed greater capacity and wisdom than the founding fathers—Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and others? But it was not to their own abilities that they gave the credit. They acknowledged Almighty God and were certain of the impossibility of their success without his help. Benjamin Franklin made an appeal for daily prayers in the Constitutional Convention. In that appeal he said, “If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I believe without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the building of Babel.”

The Revolutionary War was fought for freedom from tyranny. Today we are fortunate to still live in a choice and promised land with many freedoms, but those freedoms have been under attack and are dwindling as we continue to give up more and more liberty for the illusion of more security. It was to remain free and blessed as long as its people remember the God who gave them life and this free land. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people,” John Adams famously announced in 1798. “It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
