A Leader We Can Trust

I don’t know if you are as frustrated with “politics” in America as I am. I just want to shake them and say, “Do your job!” It seems they can’t get anything decided until the last screaming minute and then they have to play “chicken.”

It struck me this morning that we sometimes think that God is doing the same thing. What? Did I hear you right? Yes, you did.

But, be careful. I didn’t say God does this. I said, “We sometimes think that God is doing the same thing.” The truth is that we are wrong, of course.

Now that I have your attention, let me explain.

We have something we want or need from God. Sometimes it is a true need. Maybe it is money to pay a necessary bill. I know a lot of people who are living paycheck to paycheck and even then, they have to decide which bills are going to be paid. Or not.

So, we pray for God to provide. And we wait. And wait. And wait. Often He doesn’t provide in the way we thought He would. Sometimes we lose out on opportunities we hoped for, or maybe even lose a home.

But! God does come through, just in the nick of time. His time. He provides for us in some way. His way.

The difference, of course is that HE is GOD and HE knows ALL and HE is RIGHT. All of the time. Even when our mind tells us He isn’t.

So, I’m going to put my trust in the God of All and squelch every inclination to fret and worry about what they are doing in Washington. Or not doing. Oh, I’ll still give my opinion, hopefully based on scriptural principles. But my trust? That is in the King. The King of Kings. My Abba Father.
