“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: 2 Samuel 10, 1 Chronicles 20, Psalm 20, and Matthew 22.
This verse was spoken by David, the King of Israel. Who was more powerful than he was at this time? Probably no one.
Yet this powerful one is recognizing that there is Someone more powerful than He is. It is God.
If our leaders are putting their trust in something other than God, then they are serving counterfeit gods. If it is our military or the goodness of the American people or anything else, it is sinking sand. There is no permanence to it.
God does not change. And His leadership is best.
We need to understand that if we trust leaders who are not trusting God, we are asking for trouble for our country.
Because I believe that we can intercede for others, I believe that it is imperative that we intercede for our leaders. I often pray that God will flood the space where the current President is with His angels so that Godly goodness will result.
God is looking for people to follow His lead. He is willing to lead us but are we willing to let Him, or would we rather follow faulty humans?
“In You, Father, I must trust. You are the perfect leader. Intervene Father, I pray, into the lives of those who would be leaders of the US. Enable them to see You and to recognize that they need You in their daily lives. Help me to be a consistent intercessor for them. They are not off-limits from You. Invade their lives I beg. In You they must trust.”
Can’t you see the flaws in the candidates? How can you choose to trust them over God?
