Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis did not say he was running for president but he sure sounded like a man with plans beyond the Sunshine State during a Monday night address to the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention.

“Get ready. Put on the full armor of God,” DeSantis said in closing a 30-minute speech, paused 25 times for applause. “Stand firm for the truth and don’t ever ever back down. We appreciate what we’ve done in Florida. We’re proud of what we accomplished in Florida. But I can tell you this, I have only begun to fight.”

In welcoming delegates to the opening night of the four-day 2023 NRB International Christian Media Convention at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida, DeSantis painted a dark picture of troubled nation in the grip of a weak administration that has been hijacked by leftist progressive ideology.

“If you look around our country, it’s almost like things are upside down. There is a lot of pessimism out there but I think that what we’ve done in Florida should inspire people with a sense of hope,” he said.

One asset overlooked by the current administration in righting the nation, DeSantis said, is God.

“The people who are in power now do not like people of faith and so we have to get this government under control,” he said. “We have to make sure that the bureaucracy is ‘re-constitutionalized’ and, ultimately, the government is returned to its rightful owners: We the American people.”

But time is running out. The next election will determine the nation’s course for decades, which is why people of faith must lead the way, DeSantis told the Christians audience at the convention.

“American decline is not inexorable. It is a choice,” he said. “A great American comeback is attainable and freedom sure is worth fighting for. When you see the chaos and deceit in the world around us, it should prompt us to look higher.”
