YES, IN GOD WE TRUST!!!!!
I write this post after having seen the inauguration of the 45th american president-Donald Trump on TV. During the swearing in and speeches made by Mike Pence and Donald Trump, God was mentioned numerous times. So what does that mean? It means that they are inviting God into all decisions, all appointments in all the choosing and deliberations of the office.
What a great way to start with the intelligent designer God Himself. When God is at work nothing that’s impossible, is possible with God. God can stop the rain during the inauguration, change minds, policies, offices overnight, He will allow people to make fools of themselves-(just check out the protesters and the inaccurate media reportings). God can move mountains, part the Red Sea and choose leaders who are going to lead others to Him.
The way things have been in the past, God was not part of the picture. Just think! In history, God has used the lowest to do His most important work, like tax collectors, murderers such as Zaccheus, Abraham, Saul of Tarsus who became Paul, whose prolific writings formed a major portion of the New Testament. In other words, God will often use the most unlikely people for the tasks He chooses.
I quote from Pére, Jean-Pierre de Caussade…“There is not a moment in which God does not present Himself under the cover of some pain to be endured, of some consolation to be enjoyed, or of some duty to be performed. All that takes place within us, around us or through us, contains and conceals His divine action.You would be very ashamed if you knew what the experiences you call setbacks, upheavals, pointless disturbances and tedious annoyances really are. Nothing happens to you except by the will of God and yet His beloved children curse it because they do not know if for what it is. God speaks to all individuals through what happens to them moment by moment. The present moment holds infinite riches beyond your wildest dreams.
I wish America God’s protection and guidance over all its decisions making, appointments and alliances, restitutions, changes and support towards its people so that it can bring about the changes that God has put into the leader’s hearts in order for America to become a strong nation in whom God will be well pleased.
