This may or may not resonate with you; but it did with me. That is why I have chosen to write a short blog about it.
We are entering presidential election season - yipee! And due to that, I am reminded how I have been tricked many a time by putting my hopes in men. [I am using that term generically, not simply because all Presidents to this point have been men.]
I am a political science major. I got my B.S. in Poly sci and I have always been politically active. I am now 49 years old; and I have seen people come and go - as have you - in office. I do believe who we elect to be an office holder makes a difference in our lives. I do believe that the character, integrity, and beliefs of those running for office matters greatly. I have often said that just because a man is a man of principles does not automatically make him a good leader; it all depends upon what principles he holds!
However, I have been tricked time and again in putting so much hope in political leaders. And of course it is not simply political leaders. We place our hopes in money, earthly power, our own abilities, etc... I am writing this blog for me more than anyone else.
Beloved, the answer is not in man - it is in God. Really and truly - it is in God.
Psalm 146:3-4 reads this:
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.
