MAN OR GOD
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
Has there ever been a more turbulent era in american history? The two political parties seem hopelessly divided, our role in the flammable Middle East seems indefinable, the value of the unborn and marriage drift further from God's ideal, and our fiscal indebtedness grows by the hour. Yet God remains uninvited into our situation. A nation that proclaims "In God We Trust" seems to put trust in everything but Him.
The ld Testament prophets warned about trusting in man and man's methods instead of in God. When Israel was tempted to appeal to Egypt for help against her enemies, the prophet Isaiah warned the leaders, "Now the Egyptians are men, and not God and their horses are flesh and not spirit" Could there be any plainer distinction? When man finds himself in desperate situations, why would he call on others who are no greater than himself? Should we not call on the One who is God rather than relying on abilities of man?
But isn't it also true of us as individuals? When you find yourself in a quandary, don't rely on your own devices. Remember the name of the Lord our God-and trust in Him!

I will be away at Ron's nest week and will be without my computer. My daughter's company is going to renovate my bathroom and put in a shower so I am sure it will take about a week or so, depending when they start. I will continue whenever I can and will continue to pray for everyone. God bless you.
