This is the week of our nation’s Independence Day. And in today’s times there is a greater need for bright lights of the gospel and  people of faith living out their Christianity.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD . . .” Psalm 33:12 NASB

and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:14)

In Devotions for Women on the Go and Devotions for Men on the Go, we quote leaders and their view of building a nation- and a family. Two favorite quotes from two vital presidents in our nations’ history are:

George Washington: “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

Abraham Lincoln: “I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.”

Be a Legacy Builder. Today, take time to lead your family in a prayer of thanks for your family, for your nation, and for the men and women who bravely give their lives protecting your freedom. Ask God to guide ALL the leaders of the land by turning their hearts toward Him.
