“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.
“We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.” –Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan spoke these words more than a generation ago. They were powerful words then, but have become perhaps even more meaningful as we look ahead to 2012.
In his 1964 speech, called “A Time for Choosing,” Reagan captured the sentiment that the citizens of the nation must step forward to take responsibility for the future of the nation. Posterity will be blessed or will suffer depending upon how actively we step up to the plate and make a difference in our nation.
His sentiments echo a long heritage, beginning with America’s founding fathers. Generations of citizens struggled to secure liberty, even laying down their lives to secure hope for their posterity. It is our responsibility today to honestly accept that torch of responsibility and equip ourselves to be the hope-bearers for future generations.
Where do we look for guidance in achieving such a monumental task? It’s tempting to pin our hopes on political action, influential leaders, or people in places of power. The truth is that the future of our nation resides in the hands of an overruling Providence. If there is any hope for our nation, we must place our trust in the God of Nations and align ourselves with His principles regarding the government of men and nations.
Do we know His principles regarding the government of nations? Do we believe that He exercises power and control over the destinies of nations? Are we ready to live by His principles of liberty for men and nations?
For many of us these questions have rarely occupied our thinking, much less our serious consideration and practice. Our nation is suffering the consequences of this lack of Biblical understanding and character.
