Be Strong in the LORD

Jos 23:8 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.
Jos 23:9 For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.
Jos 23:10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
Jos 23:11 Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God

Osama Bin Laden is dead. He was killed by special forces of the US military. It is a victory for our nation against a terrorist leader. There is a show of patriotism with the waving of flags and the shouting voices, but is this enough? Does a president receive the glory? The U.S. military? or is it favor from the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob?

The LORD spoke to the armies of Israel and the people that they are to cleave unto the LORD your God. The LORD drives out great nations before them. I think of Israel now, a tiny nation in the promise land surrounded be Ishmaelites. They hate Israel, but the God of Joshua is the God of Israel. In proportion Israel is as one man in a thousand. "One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God fighteth for you." Israel, take heed to Love the LORD thy God. Christian America take heed, to love the LORD thy God, for we as a nation have gone after the gods of this world.

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
