What goes on in the world never ceases to amaze, shock and sometimes scare me. Donald Trump becoming the president certainly raised eyebrows last November, yet he continues to keep everyone on their toes with what he might do next.
His latest spat with Kim Jong-un doesn’t fill you with any greater confidence. North Korea threatening “pain and suffering” and Trump responding with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” makes us all hope no one gets trigger-happy with nuclear weapons any time soon.
Sadly human nature never changes. We’ve seen centuries of egotistical power-hungry world leaders who want to make their mark on history. The fact is ‘man’s inhumanity to man’ has only one real solution.
The Bible tells us in Psalm 146 v3-5, “Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God.”
While world powers think they put themselves in charge the Bible tells us otherwise. Daniel 4 v17 says “…that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses - even to the lowliest of people.” You can really start to see this in the world today!
So as each world leader comes and goes, scrapping for power and popularity, it becomes more and more obvious we should be putting our hope and trust in God, not them.
To find out what the Bible says about our past, present and future, why not come along at 10am any Sunday morning. Discover awesome plans for a peaceful future – plans based on more than missile-firing and name-calling!
