We start 2019 with our government shut down. Though there are certainly arguments for and against both sides in this standoff, the current impasse is further proof why we place not our faith in man but in God. Though the media may be shouting that this is unique or unprecedented, the failure of humankind to find solutions or chart an amicable path forward is as old as time. Paul echoed this idea, urging us, “That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” Faith in God alone prevents us from the worries caused by the fickleness of man. Today, reaffirm your faith in God and pray for His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
“That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 2:5 ESV
