Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be joyful.” (Proverbs 16:20 NLT)
The government is at it again. Recent local rulings in Fayetteville have State lawmakers creating legislation to protect businesses and ministries from groups whose values conflict with Judeo-Christian beliefs. Seems that within America’s near future, citizens will be found guilty and jailed for discrimination while blind eyes are turned against the discrimination of the 1st amendment and the sanctity of religious beliefs.
As I sat with local pastors and legislators last night, learning of new bills to pass before the House on our protective, collective behalf, I couldn’t help but think of this verse. My trust is not completely in government rulings or the public’s fickle opinions, but in the Hand of my God who will only lead me where His grace shields me. Any other place would only leave me a nervous wreck!
As the political season begins to gear up, don’t be afraid to speak up and vote according to God’s Word. Evil can only reign if the good people will do nothing. But let your ultimate trust be in the God that no one can kick off the throne! We are held securely in Him, no matter the polling outcomes! You are loved today!
