A Few Quotes by George Washington

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 George Washington (February 22, 1732), the First President of the United States of America, I would like to share a few quotes by this remarkable man.

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world . . .
without God and Bible.”

“The propitious (favourable) smiles of Heaven
can never be expected on a nation
that disregards the eternal rules of order and right
which Heaven itself has ordained”

“Make sure you are doing
what God wants you to do —
then do it with all your strength.”

“It is the duty of all Nations
to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God,
to obey His will,
to be grateful for His benefits,
and humbly, to implore His protection and favors.”

“Nothing is a greater stranger to my breast,
or a sin that my soul more abhors,
than that black and detestable one –
ingratitude.”

“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough
to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles,
the character of an honest man.”

“Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark
of celestial fire, called conscience.”

“I am sure that never was a people,
who had more reason to acknowledge a Divine interposition in their affairs,
than those of the United States;
and I should be pained to believe that they have forgotten that agency,
which was so often manifested during our Revolution,
or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God
who is alone able to protect them.”

Washington was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and later he presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the United States Constitution.

Washington is regarded as one of the main driving forces behind the establishment of the United States. Washington was admired by his peers for his strong leadership qualities, and he was unanimously elected as the first President of the United States by the Electoral College.

Washington set many precedents for the national government, and for the presidency in particular, and he was called the “Father of His Country” as early as 1778. Washington was revered in life and in death. Both scholarly and public polling consistently rank him among the top three presidents in American history. He is considered by many as a man of outstanding character, meaning a man of “integrity, self-discipline, courage, absolute honesty, resolve, and decision, but also forbearance, decency, and respect for others.” [1]

Because of Washington’s sincere commitment and devotion to Yahuwah Elohim, the LORD God of the Bible, Yahuwah honoured Washington’s leadership, and ultimately blessed the nation with strength and stability.

Blessed is the nation
whose God is Yahuwah Elohim
[the LORD God]!

(Psalms 33:12)

Devotion:
A kiss is not 'just a kiss.' When a kiss happens, something very mysterious and significant happens. In the same way, when we give our heart to Yahushua Messiah, we enter into a mysterious and significant covenant relationship with Him.
