How much longer will we be favored?

Psalm 44:3 "For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them." (NKJV)

Here in Psalm 44:3, it speaks of the Israelites being given the Promised Land "because God favored them." The Psalmist acknowledges that the Israelites' conquest of the land did not come about due to their fierceness or military strength. Their success did not depend upon their own efforts or skills. Their achievement was made possible by One Source--that source of their blessing was God, and God alone. All of which prompts a very pertinent question for America today. How much longer will we as a nation be blessed by God's favor when people march in parades to celebrate the sins of the LGBTQ community, or when countless babies are slaughtered week after week by Planned Parenthood, or when arrogant, demeaning, rude and hate-filled words continue to emanate from the very top of our countries political leadership--both from Democrats and especially from the top of the Republican panicle of power? Just a few matters to ponder as we approach the Fourth of July celebration this week. -- Pastor Darvin
