Andrew Murray (1828-1917) ministered for 60 years in the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa. In that time, he authored more than 200 books and tracts, founded educational institutions, and served the vulnerable population.
“‘May not a single moment of my life be spent outside the light, love, and joy of God’s presence,’ was his prayer. ‘And not a moment without the entire surrender of myself as a vessel for him to fill full of his Spirit and his love.'” (Christian History)

When the temple was completed, all the elders and Levites brought the ark of the covenant, the tent of meeting, and the holy vessels before King Solomon and the assembly of Israel. They sacrificed sheep and oxen–too many to number–before the ark. Then the priests placed the ark in the Holy Place.
When they came out of the Holy Place, all the Levitical singers, arrayed with fine linen and carrying harps, cymbals, and lyres praised the Lord in unison with 120 trumpeters.
“For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever,” the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God. 2 Chronicles 5:13-14

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people whom He has chosen as His heritage! Psalm 33:12
The United States of America was bought with the blood of our colonial soldiers and the protection of God Almighty, and it is preserved by the blood of our American men and women soldiers and the prayers of Christians. Freedom is hard won.
Thank you to our military members, veterans, and their families for the sacrifices that they have made, both apparent and those that are unspoken.
Thank you to our Father in heaven. Oh, LORD, You promised that if Your people who are called by Your name will humble ourselves, pray and seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, You will hear, forgive, and heal our land. LORD, hear, forgive, and heal our land; return America to You.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Let freedom reign!
