The Highest Law

By   •   July 3   •   Topics:

The men who framed our Constitution knew they were writing the basic document for a government of free men; they recognized that men could live as free and independent beings only if each one knew and understood the law. They were to know their rights, their privileges, and their limitations. They were to stand as equals before the court of law, and few judges could be unfair; for the judge, too, was bound by the same law and required to try each case accordingly. . . . As the Constitution is the highest law of the land, so the Bible is the highest law of God. For it is in the Bible that God sets forth His spiritual laws. It is in the Bible that God makes His enduring promises. It is in the Bible that God reveals the plan of redemption for the human race.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, each day our nation and we, the people, face so many crises. May each one of us seek wisdom through Your Word, the Bible.

    Another Year Older and God is Still Strong

    Is America tired?
    Is she weary? Is she broken?
    I’d say she is
    But be still, God has spoken.

    God, the name of the most Holy
    And undivided Trinity
    In which America became it’s own nation,
    Is not tired!

    Is America falling?
    Is she damaged? Is she worn?
    I believe she is
    But take heart, God is strong.

    The same country that on the Seventeenth Day of September
    In the Year of our Lord
    One thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven
    Is still in God’s hands!

    God’s not getting tired.
    His hands are not weak.
    His shoulders, not broken.
    He’s still on His feet.

    God’s not given up
    He still listens and sees.
    He still answers, still loves.
    He still blesses and keeps.

    His plan

    There is no higher law in existence that God’s law. We must do our best to obey man’s law as long as it does not contravene God’s law.
