MAY: Wondering what if ...

(Continued)

What if it feels my hope is gone?

David, perhaps Israel’s greatest biblical King, proclaimed in the middle of Psalm 20, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Government programs may come and go. Godly leaders may be as scarce as million dollar lottery winners. Don’t be tricked into putting hope solely in people who can be voted out of office next term, or change their direction before the term is over.

David’s psalm begins and ends with a prayer for the king. May his path be protected by the Lord; may the Lord hear us when we call. May he experience victories over evil; may his soul be saved.

What if … I prayed for our leaders like that?
