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!

But I will rescue you from those you fear so much. Because you trusted me, I will give you your life as a reward. I will rescue you and keep you safe.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭39‬:‭17-18‬ NLT)

According to David Harlow, associate director for operations with the U.S. Marshals Service, more than 18,400 men, women and children have participated in the Witness Security Program, and not one of the 8,500 witnesses or the 9,900 family members has been harmed, according to the U.S Marshals Service. “It’s a big feather in our cap,” Harlow told CNN back in 2013.

You don’t have to rat on the Mob to be scared of people. For the most part, you simply don’t want to fight, be frowned on, or have someone spreading rumors about you. Just as the Marshals protect from harm, so does The Lord, watching over our life and making sure we are safe from the more common, less deadly form of personal conflict. Yet, even in dangerous moments, God intervenes!

As you live today, know that God watches over you! You don’t have to fear the words or weapons of others. His vow to you is safety, as long as you stay in His spectrum of blessing! You are loved today! Live confidently!
