How Many Times Have You Heard The Word, “Default” Lately?
What does the word, “default” mean? One of the definitions is to fail in fulfilling or satisfying an engagement, claim, or obligation. We here in the United States have been hearing a lot lately about the possibility of our government defaulting.
It is no exaggeration that our country is facing some very serious decisions. The problems we face are a result of many, many years of wrong decisions and failure to correct past mistakes. Regardless of what decisions our lawmakers make now there are going to be consequences; their decisions will simply map out how severe and how long lasting.
I wrote an article back in April that I posted on this blog when fear of a government shutdown was looming. Now, a little more than three months laterm it is once again crunch time for the politicians.
One Of The Biggest Problems?
There is no question that difficult times are inevitable. But looking to our government to solve our problems is perhaps one of the biggest problems itself.
In that article from April, I wrote, “But our trust, our confidence, our absolute reliance must always be in our God. Regardless of what politicians do, regardless of what the consequences of their decisions bring, none of it ever shuts down God. There will never, ever be a shutdown of God’s love and power to help you.”
The Same Is True Today
God will not default on His promises to you. Therefore our trust, our confidence, our reliance must be on our God and not on our government. Yes, our country needs prayer; the Bible directs us to pray for our leaders. But those who continue to put their trust in the government to solve all their problems are going to be disappointed.
In these treacherous days of uncertainty we should definitely be praying for our country and our leaders. We should also being praying much for our own personal situations, looking to God for His help and guidance.
I still believe that our God is a personal God. I believe that He can help each one of us personally and individually. I believe that our loving God can reveal specific things to us that are just for us. Do you?
Our God will never fail in fulfilling or satisfying His claims or obligations. Our God will not default!
