Independence: be careful what you wish for

0

On July 4th of each year, Americans celebrate the independence won from England over 200 years ago. While it can be good thing to gain independence from an unfriendly government, it is wise to remember independence from God is not only a disastrous  desire – it is impossible!

Notice what Isaiah says about the possibility of nations being independent from God:

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?

He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

He brings princes to naught
and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
