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 – Acts 18:24-26

Acts 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John’s baptism. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.
