WHERE DOES OUR STRENGTH COME FROM?

I have a proneness

To ache over history,

Have no ease today.

Where does my help come from? In spite of the fact that God does not change, it seems that people seldom look to Him for strength. From a point of history, it is interesting to trace many of the third world countries from a Christian standpoint.

    Thank you. History shows sin destroys all nations from within. LOOK at all the past glorious ones. ALL GONE. Look now at Papua New Guinea one of the most savage tribal nations who were still eating their enemies only a few years ago. Check out this nation’s status today,
    Officially classified as a CHRISTIAN NATION. Confirmed by the Prime Minister in 2021 and proudly aligned with Israel. What about US and Australia? No longer listed as Christian. God Judea Christian God somehow lost in deception and politics. Yes Strength only in the KING OF THE NATIONS..JESUS CHRIST>
