Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
(Psalms 20:7 (NIV))
Events over the next few weeks are focusing on the political aspects of our nation’s life. I have come to hate the way that this process seems to have degenerated into something far less than civil. We used to be able to agree to disagree when we have differences of opinions, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
What would Jesus think of our political process? What would He have to say about both parties and what they stand for? What do you believe that Jesus is thinking when He looks at us as we place our hope and trust in a political party and an individual to lead us?
I glanced at the television for a few brief times today and I found myself thinking about Psalms 20:7. We must remember that no matter what the outcome, God is in control. There is a bigger picture that we do not see. With that in mind, we, as the Body of Christ, must be sure that we place our trust in the name of the Lord our God. We must also pray for discernment and wisdom so that we may respond as God wishes for us to respond. I know that we all pray for God to have mercy on us as a nation. Have you ever stopped to think that His mercy may come in the form of someone whom He has called to fulfill His purpose?
I have hope for this country and the world, but I have a confident faith in Jesus! Things of this world will fail us, but Jesus will never fail us.
Where do you place your trust?
