Jeremiah 33:14-16, Psalm 25:1-10, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, Luke 21:25-36
Too often we rely on our earthly instincts to make decisions. We trust people too much. We assume things will follow a set pattern. We believe in things and people that are not dependable or are temporal.
Instead, we should follow the One who is eternal, the One who is omniscient, the One who is the Alpha and the Omega, the One true living God. It is God who sets all things in motion, whether it is the rotation of the planets in our solar system or something personal, like providing you with the protection against all enemies and afflictions.
He delivers, not on your time, but on His time. He is faithful, always there for us when we need Him. He is steadfast, immovable. All those qualities we look for in our elected leaders, our ministers, our business executives, in other words, we look for godly qualities in those who are not God.
If we truly seek out the truth, then we must follow the one who is the Truth, the Way and the Light. We must follow God by studying His word, praying to Him, and living a life based on faith, not fear. Men terrorize, God comforts. Men intimidate, God radiates. In mankind, we find despair; in God we find hope.
Let us recommit ourselves to real leadership. Let us follow God, so that we may one day attain the real truth, for all eternity.
