We ALL Settled America . . .

God blessed America like no other country in history. America’s Christian foundation was built by Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Puritans, Catholics and others . . . All coming to a new land for religious freedom and/or to save the lost and God honored it. All 50 States Constitutions make mention of thanksgiving and/or glory, etc. to God.  (See it in previous blog)

June 28, 1787 – True Story

The Constitutional Convention was in a deadlock over how large and
small states could be represented equally.

Some delegates gave up and left.

Then, on JUNE 28, 1787, 81-year-old Benjamin Franklin spoke and
shortly after, the U.S. Constitution became a reality.

As recorded by James Madison, Franklin stated:

“Groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce
able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir,
that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the
Father of lights.”

Franklin continued:

“In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were
sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for Divine
protection.

Our prayers, Sir, were heard and they were graciously answered.

All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed
frequent instances of a Superintending Providence in our favor…

And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we
no longer need His assistance?”


Franklin concluded:

“We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the
Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.’…
I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed…no
better than the Builders of Babel.”

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it vas not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great. ” (Generally credited to Alexis de Tocqueville)

Let us return to goodness and prayer and trust in God for answers and direction.
