Make America great again – that won’t happen without God – honoring Him, obeying Him……..
Greatness in America is not dependent on politics but on the people who make up a nation who honor and obey God.
Jesus said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing. ” Simple. Truth.
America is great only because of the greatness of God.
America is good only because of the goodness of God.
America is now a people fueled by anger, fear, confusion, lies……….within both parties.
We bring ourselves way down when our focus is on an earthly solution to a spiritual problem of the heart. Greatness or goodness in a nation is not dependent on any man saying those words. For no man can do it apart from God.
God resists the proud and grace is poured out on the humble. I don’t see that in either party right now.
Are we joining our Christianity to politics, walking hand in hand, side by side where one goes, the other follows. This is foolishness.
Jesus said that His kingdom is not of this world. As citizens of the kingdom, while living on the earth, we live in the tension of maintaining a respect for our government. Respect – not idolatry in any candidate, not pride in a party…….
The tension of living in the world while not being of the world is always there. We would be wise, though, to not walk sync our political duty with our spiritual reality.
I am not telling you how to vote. Don’t misconstrue what I am saying here. I have no business knowing how you vote and you have no business knowing how I vote. I am, however, asking you to truly look deep inside your heart…..
Christ reigns now and forever more, whether Trump is president or whether Clinton is president.
Do we understand that? I’m not sure.
Whoever wins, someone is sure to cry out, “This is the end of America as we know it.”
Can you see the foolishness in this?
This nation is divided, angry, fearful….no matter who wins. How can one man or woman solve a spiritual problem? Our hearts must turn to the Lord.
I want my heart to be focused on Jesus before I vote, to be clear before the election. That clarity is found only in Christ Jesus.
My thoughts for today because I am weary of all that is taking place. All night, I kept thinking of Isaiah 29 and its parallel to our situation in America today, seeing it through grace. I will pray and blog about this next week.
My heart cry – to see a people turn back to the Lord, not dependent on politics of religion but solely upon relationship and intimacy in Christ first.
