Though we are a nation separated from the State of Great Britain and free from the tyranny that was once placed upon our thirteen colonies, we are not totally and completely independent. The appeal for this independence was made to "the Supreme Judge of the world" whom as we know is God. If you are of total independence, why would you need to appeal to "the Supreme Judge of the world?" Because the men who agreed to this separation knew that our ultimate allegiance is to God and that He would make a way when there seemed to be no other. As we celebrate this day we must also give thanks to God for His intervention in the life of our country and that He continues to keep us from a cruel and oppressive government. We must continue to appeal to Him and intercede on behalf of these United States of America, that we remain free to worship Him, the creator of Heaven and earth.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me. Psalms 5:8
