Psalm 146:3-6  Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. (NLT)

“Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there.” 

I have tweeted on numerous occasions across the years, “Politics is not ultimate reality.” I may have just done it again. As we are well into another presidential election cycle and all that goes with it, let us fondly recall who is really in charge here. 

It would be wise to vote for people who understand they are not the big dogs they pretend to be. It would be wise to remember that dogs carry fleas. 

Instead of placing undue measures of faith in a politician or two who will immediately have half the country resisting him or her, trust God who made the world and everything in it. 

Instead of trusting imperfect people to accomplish more than their character will bear, trust God who keeps every promise forever. 

Joyful lives focus on ultimate reality, not political parties. 

Joyful lives focus on who determines ultimate outcomes and not those who will grab the reins of power for the next few years. 

When the news media focuses more and more on powerful people attempting to become even more powerful, focus instead on God whose power never wanes, whose promises never fail, and who holds our ultimtate destiny in his hands. 

These are powerful thoughts to move us forward into a week where we get to display what we believe and who we trust in every decision we make.

I will trust God who made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them, who keeps every promise forever.

Our Father, you made it all. You own it all. You have the final say about it all. How now shall we live in light of these truths? Empower us to live what we say we believe today and in the week ahead. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
