I am not really one who likes to talk about politics. Not at all. I definitely have my own thoughts and opinions about things but I do my best to try to look at situations with an unbiased view. I happened to watch the news the other day, and I was heartbroken. Heartbroken at how our country is so completely divided and how we refuse to even consider where people on the “other side” are coming from. Instead, we immediately villainize others as the enemy.
I believe that most people (including me) generally have the desire to see justice served- to see wrongs made right. I also believe that there are people in power who use other people’s sufferings to promote hidden agendas… which makes it nearly impossible for us to know the truth about anything!
As heartbroken as it makes me to turn on the news, I still believe that God is on the throne and He is a God of justice and mercy. If we put our hope in people and politics, we will be let down every time. God is faithful and He is Lord of all.
This is a song I wrote about putting aside our political opinion and fully trusting Him. Are we honoring Him with the words we speak on these matters? I am hopeful, and I am praying for a Holy Spirit revival to sweep across this country!
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful- Hebrews 10:23
