For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. [Deuteronomy 32:28 KJV]
As the power of government changes from hand into another, many Americans are watching attentively to see what their new leadership will hold for their collective future.
Many people have grown anxious, fearing only the worst. While others feel that the change in power–from Democrat to Republican–will be a change for the better.
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. [Proverbs 29:2 KJV]
Though only time will tell which side made the correct assessment, there is one side, however, that hasn’t even been factored into the equation. While we argue which political party is evil, God was and will remain in control.
As Christians sadly, we have allowed the separation of church and state to be mirrored in our own lives. How could we, the bearers of His name, choose to place state over church? Though Christ never encouraged disobedience, He was never ashamed of His faith even at the brink of His crucifixion. Can you say the same?
While we as Christians debate between the victories and debacles of each political party, we have forgotten about the very words that we have recited in our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance since 1954. What ever happened to “one nation under God?”
Founded on Christian beliefs, the United States of America has lost its way. We are a lost people. Our only guide, the one true leader, reigns above the earth on His heavenly throne. The sooner we begin to accept Christ as our personal Savior, choosing to follow in His footsteps. the better our lives and the lives of our future generations will become.
Christ was no Democrat or Republican. He was indivisible. He is the king of kings, who became a condemned man in order to save all peoples.
Do not look unto our nation’s government for leadership, look towards Jesus and Jesus Christ alone.
