July 4 is the Independent Day of the USA. Happy Independence Day to the United States of America! I was reading a post written by a British, and America was referred to as “a sister to the Great Britain.” I was flabbergasted. This is to tell you that America is a GREAT country. A sister to a great country is also a great country. The US is great indeed, for it to be confirmed by the government of a nation that colonized her.
America is a very great country and truly independent country. The question I always ask myself is, “What made the United States be great?” I read some books and I found out that the founding fathers built her foundation on God, the rock, which is a natural and most dependable foundation for any building.
Her foundation was built on God. Her sail is God. Is a clause like, “In God, we trust” strange to you? They truly did, and I strongly believe that high percentage of people in America still do today. The type of foundation determines the edifice that will be built on it, not otherwise. This is also true when it comes to building a country from the scratch like that of US. The stronger the foundation, the stronger the building, the greater the foundation, the greater the building!
In my own perspective, America loves God, they love people of God, and they love the things of God. The founding fathers were wise to make God Almighty the foundation from the inception, the Constitution was built and developed based on God’s principles. That is why any mistake that is made in the building can easily be corrected. The whole building can even be demolished and rebuilt since the foundation is still intact.
It cannot be otherwise, many countries want to be great like the Great Britain, the Great America, the Great China, and other countries of the world (the G8, the G20, etc.) It would not be easy, a great building can never be built on a shallow and weak foundation. The foundation has to be re-visited. But do you know one thing, from my experience as a Civil Engineering graduate, it is not easy to work on a foundation, the best bet is to abandon the foundation, and to start another one.
If the foundation is destroyed, the righteous have to forget about that foundation and start another one that is able to carry the great building they have in mind. When I worked at Covenant University in Lagos/Ogun State, Nigeria, I saw a very big foundation that was ignored, Bishop David Oyedepo told the professionals to abandon it and start on a new site because it is a very mighty building and it must have a recommended clearance from another mighty college building beside it.
The higher or greater the building, the deeper the foundation has to be. For a bungalow, you can excavate 600mm, but when it is a 2-storey building, it has to be the minimum of 1000mm, depending on the type of soil.
