God Will Take Care of Us!

I've heard from many people that they are concerned for our country, themselves, our world, etc. as it seems like uncertain times. I don't want to jump on the bandwagon of doom and gloom forecastors. I want to challenge everyone to remember that God, not our political leaders is the one ultimately in charge. God is powerful enought to work through what we might seem as an unlikely vessel to bring about good AND He is powerful enough to protect us from evil (read Psalm 91) AND He is powerful enough to bring us through any tough times ahead. We need to put our faith and trust in God, not our government. If we look to man to solve our problems, we will surely be disappointed. If we look to God to solve our problems, He will NEVER disappoint!
We need to be wise in the decisions we make and make sure we have consulted the Lord first, then leave the rest to Him!
I want to challenge everyone to pray for our country and its leaders and military at least once a day. It is amazing how much better you feel when you know that you have laid our country at the feet of the Almighty!!!
Matthew 6:25, 31-34
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

And even though it seems as though a certain president is very set in his ways and would never budge, it's good to remember Proverbs 21:1: "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will."

Very true. I thought about that verse along with many others as I made the post. I didn't want to make it all about him, though as he has been getting quite alot of attention. ;O)
