National Freedom and Integrity Depends on the Superior Army
Napoleon demonstrated this all the way from 1795 to 1805, from
the time of his Italian campaign to that great campaign to Austerlitz.
All of those earlier campaigns demonstrated the principle that the best
army obtains freedom for that country. After Austerlitz, Napoleon had
completely liberated France, while the defeated states were completely
enslaved. He had the best army at that point.
God uses the Military to demonstrate the degeneracy of a Nation. The
failure of the military on the battlefield indicates lack of self-discipline,
lack of respect for authority. This is illustrated by Zedekiah in
2 Chronicles 36:11-21. He had no respect for the authority of Jeremiah ,
"My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."
Dear Father, thank You for the Holy Spirit and for the strength He
gives. Teach me how to fix my thoughts on You and Your love
In Christ name I pray
