This weekend I had the misfortune of spending a prolonged period of time in a waiting room. A television was on in the background that was tuned to a station in which a political debate was taking place.
As each candidate sought to put forth themselves as the answer, I could feel myself growing more and more despondent. Such vanity. What darkened counsel man has to offer. What miserable instruction. What promises of trouble their so-called “progressive” thinking guarantees us! Surely these leaders will drive us all into the ditch!
But there is One who has declared, “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool” (Isaiah 66:1).
Yes; trouble will come,”But if one trouble follow hard after another, if all seem to combine for our ruin, let us remember they are all appointed and overruled by the Lord.” (Matthew Henry).
Psalms 43:3 says, “Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling!”
In Christ, we have the light. The Lord is our light and our salvation. He will lead us in Truth. His Word is the Truth. He will teach us, and every gracious and divine providence in our life will lead us into His presence.
Oh Lord, let our hope be in You all day long!
