Hopes placed in mortals die with them; all the promise of their power comes to nothing. Proverbs 11:7
Are you placing your hope in this year’s presidential election? Every election the candidates like to give us inspiring speeches about how they are going to resolve all the nations’ problems. And for a time, you might actually buy into these hopes. But eventually reality sets in and we find out the candidates are just telling you what you want to hear. Most of them become disgraced with corruption and unmoral lifestyles. But we continue to fall for these mortals because our hope is misplaced.
We already have a Savior; we have a Messiah, Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless and blameless life (1 Peter 2:22). All the nations and governments rest on his shoulders.(Isaiah 9:6) If you want to see a change in your life, accept Jesus as your Lord, and you will see true transformation. But if we continue to put our hopes in mortals, then you will continually be let down and disappointed.
Our Kingdom is not of this world, yet,(John 18:36) however we live in this nation today so we should continue to be the Salt and Light (Matthew 5) we were called to be. Can voting make a difference? Absolutely, for nations and governments were established by God.(Romans 13:1) We can vote for leaders who will be our voice on issues that count. But don’t blindly put all your hopes and dreams in mortals, for they will continue to fail you. Put your faith and trust in our King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus, the almighty Son of God, Amen
