It is important that we never forget the heroes of our nation — the men and women who, by exceptional courage and nobility and strength, have done great things on behalf of their country.
Today, in honour of the birthdate of Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809), the 16th President of the United States of America, I would like to share a few quotes by this uncommon man:
“…I know that the Lord is always
on the side of the right.
But it is my constant anxiety and prayer
that I and this nation,
should be on the Lord’s side.”
“Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity,
and a firm reliance on Him,
who has never yet forsaken this favored land,
are still competent to adjust, in the best way,
all our present difficulty.”
“I have been driven many times upon my knees
by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.
My own wisdom and that of all about me,
seemed insufficient for that day.”
“Without the assistance of that Divine Being … I cannot succeed.
With that assistance, I cannot fail.”
“Nevertheless, amid the greatest difficulties of my Administration,
when I could not see any other resort, I would place my whole reliance on God,
knowing that all would go well, and that He would decide for the right.”
“In regard to this Great Book [the Bible],
I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man.
All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book.
But for it we could not know right from wrong.
All things most desirable for man’s welfare,
here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it”
Lincoln has been consistently ranked, by scholars and the public, as among one of the greatest of U.S. presidents. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War (1861 to 1865) — which remains its bloodiest war, and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.
By Lincoln’s leadership, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Lincoln’s image has provided our nation with a symbol of freedom who brought hope to the oppressed, he strengthen reverence for the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence, and he has inspired and guided multitudes by his moral courage and leadership. 
Because of Lincoln’s trust and dependence on Yahuwah Elohim, the LORD God of the Bible, Yahuwah honoured Lincoln’s leadership, and ultimately blessed the nation with restoration and unity.
Blessed is the nation
whose God is Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God]!
