Today is the anniversary of one of the saddest days in U.S. history.  However, in response to the events that took place on this day 7 years ago, our country has once again risen to the challenge of the enemy.  I saw the following quote on and just had to post it here…

“Our enemies have made the mistake that America’s enemies always make. They saw liberty and thought they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat.” – George W. Bush, President of the United States September 11 Quotes.  I think this is even more telling as the “SURGE” has been successful.  Thanks to our president and our military for seeing to it.

It reminds me of – “…When the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall raise up a standard…” and “…no weapon formed against you shall prosper.”  Of these 2 references, it doesn’t say that you won’t face any devistation.  When it floods, you will get wet.  When a weapon is used against you, there is grave danger in harm coming to you.  But these encouraging word of God simply reveals that it will NOT last and cannot prosper against the Kingdom of God and its inhabitants.

Take a moment today and pray for our nation and especially for our troops who continue to fight for our freedoms.
