Psalm 119:45

Liberty Homes Builder – Central Virginia's Value Builder

What is the first thing you think about when you think of Independence Day? For many of us, the Fourth of July serves as a day to watch fireworks, BBQ, and have a good time with family and friends. This year we celebrate Independence Day a little differently, and the liberty we all have in our country can be more appreciated.

“And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts.” (Psalm 119:45)

As wonderful as the blessing of liberty is, God has something greater for His people, freedom from the stress of worrying about the uncertainties of life. We cannot control what happens, but we can trust the God who holds our future.

Samuel Adams was bold in his faith. To him, the signing of the Declaration of Independence meant no longer submitting to Britain, but instead, submitting to God. As a result, we would live free from the power of man and able to serve Jesus. What an important day in history.

It is also important to remember what our duties are as Believers. We are called to serve Jesus and Jesus alone, and it is such a blessing that we can live in a country where we have the freedom to go to church and read our Bibles.

“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)

Often, the enemy will use distractions to keep us from fulfilling our duties as Believers. Being distracted by all that happens around us right now can cause us to lose sight of the true meaning of the holiday.

Why is it important to acknowledge Independence Day, and how can we do so in today’s world? Our liberty is a blessing from God. Because of our freedom, we can express our faith and boldly share it with others.

Do not lose sight of why we celebrate Independence Day. Take time today to reflect on the ways God has blessed us in life and make it a goal not to take the freedom we have for granted.

As you spend today with your family or close friends, remember to celebrate the blessing of freedom that was given to us by Jesus.
