There are so many ways God has been merciful to our country despite our sin and selfishness. I’ll name one. He gave us a man like Abraham Lincoln. I read “Team of Rivals” by Doris Goodwin this year. (Lincoln’s cabinet was made up of the men who ran against him.)
Lincoln treated his rivals with dignity, and in election speeches would refer to his opponent as “my honorable opponent.” His speeches against slavery were clear, honest, and passionate. I found myself wondering if God heard the cries of His people, much as He heard the groaning of the Israelites in Egypt, and sent, not Moses, but Abraham Lincoln.
How have you seen God bless America?
