David Jeremiah 4 January 2022 Today Devotional Message
In the prestigious American Political Science Review, a study surveyed the political literature from the era of America’s founding. Which writings did the Founding Fathers consult when establishing the new nation? The study showed that the Bible was cited more frequently than any writings of European political theorists—especially the book of Deuteronomy.
The beginning of any endeavor requires a firm foundation. When the nation of Israel sought to regain their nationhood after the captivity in Babylon and Persia, the leaders did what the Founding Fathers of America did: They made the Word of God as their guiding source of spiritual and moral light. The leaders called the people into the center of Jerusalem and had Ezra read the Law from daybreak until noon. The people wept as they remembered that it was their disregard for God’s Word that had sent them into captivity seventy years earlier.
Whether you are beginning or continuing, a major endeavor, keep the Word of God central as you go. And don’t deviate from it.
The Word of God is either absolute or obsolete.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
