Where Francis Scott Key wrote the "The Star-Spangled Banner"!
" Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. "
Romans 11:5 KJV
Start Again... from the Remnants
Remnants is defined as, "a small remaining quantity of something." (Google)...Sometimes it might be even considered the remaining or of 'what is left'. Through much battles and trials trying to live by the covenant of Christ, stumbling might occur. And transgression after transgression continues to manifest into a horrible mess. And the person is left with a small remaining quantity of a relationship with the Lord. However, from the small remains of a person it is possible to start again and rebuild one self, especially in the full reconciliation of oneself unto the Lord.
The beginning description given in Romans chapter 11 is in reference to Jews not accepting Lord Jesus Christ by faith and are eventually enticed to due to seeing the riches of the Genital's even the riches of the world apparently from the Jews transgressions. Which Apostle Paul provides the solution is to reconcile and accept the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord and their Life (Ref. Romans 11:15 Amp). But what about the gentiles that stumble and fall and are at the point to close to nothing as Christians?
Based on the actions of the Lord we too can govern our actions by focusing what's left and alive! After much seeking the Lord and fighting for his righteousness Elijah (aka: Elias) just wanted to die (1 Kings 19:4 KJV), however the Lord instructed to seek him more and told him where (1 Kings 19:11-12 KJV). And after the wind, earthquake and fire a small voice was heard and this led him into a cave where he counseled with the Holy God. (1 Kings 19:13 KJV). After hearing Elijah's statements how many were out to kill him the Holy Lord motivated him to stay encourage to serve him that it was not a total loss, " Yet I will leave 7,000 [survivors] in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed down to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him.” (1 Kings 19:18 AMP).
Therefore, us too after fighting in battles and lost (respect for each other, relationships with family or friends, maybe jobs, or etc.) let us redirect our focus on what is still left alive, the remnant! Though the scars of war or battles are somethings hidden and other times in plain sight still start again to rebuild into a new from the remnants in your own life with the Lord Jesus Christ. And as holy citizens in the Holy God the fathers land we too can be rebuilt into something greater still even now. Not everyone's journey is like Elijah's, where one is asked to go thru the wind, earthquakes and fire to seek the Lord, however; the advise the Lord gives is a great concept we ALL can use and need from God (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV)!
Let’s all progress ourselves in the knowledge of the Holy God Almighty and try to apply him in all our living by just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!
