21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. 27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. 28 He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him. (Lamentations 3:21-28 KJV)
There is always hope but it does not mean a person will get what is wished. It’s of the Lord’s mercy that hope if fulfilled or denied. Verse twenty five say the Lord is good to them that wait for Him also to the soul that seek Him. Many have hope for the present US Administration although I, personally, have none. He is neither the Lord nor is he any good for the nation as a whole for he have forsaken God. Lies upon lies beget damnation from the Lord and everything he touches or is with him. His tongue will one day be silenced, that is when verse twenty eight come into play. He will then sit alone and be silent because he did it to himself.
Be true and faithful to God and shun the deceitful liars, back stabbers, con artists, as well as those politicians that only look out for themselves. They were elected to carry our banner, to help the down trodden, to help mankind and, in doing so, uphold the laws/word of God, in which this nation was founded. For those of you that have forgotten our nation’s history, this nation was founded because of religion. Never mind the forcefully taking, conning, and bribing the indigenous people that were living here long before the first ship arrived claiming a new world. They were called Indians because the ship people were looking for a shorter route to India and thought it was found. The first settlers were escaping Europe to have religious freedom which brought them to this so called new world. The new people of the new world wrote a charter, laws, as well as other papers that were based on religious laws, the laws of God.
Now the US Administration have a man that is breaking, bending, denying these laws, living a good life (paid for be the tax payers) and steering this nation on a path that he wants. Lord have mercy on his soul and ours if we follow him down the road of destruction. However, I have hope for us. I believe more than enough people believe in God, trust God and will acknowledge Gods laws/word. Those that do not, as I have written in prior blogs, will burn in the fiery depths of hell. Satan awaits and is gloating.
Hope is a risk that must be run. (George Bernanos, “Why Freedom” The Last Essays Of George Bernanos (1955))
And run we must.
17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. 18 This shall be written for the generation to come and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD. (Psalms 102:17-18 KJV)
Couple hope with prayer and we have a chance. Love the Lord with all your heart and soul, things will become better. I have hope, you should also. Be like Job and have enough faith to know that God will eventually help all of us through this.
