I was reading the book of Job and thought about our leaders trying to run our country without God. Every one of them needs to read the book of Job. The very best reason I can think of why they should read it is because they have taken the richest country in the world to the brink of bankruptcy. We may ask, “Why?” I think that is very simple. I believe they have quit listening to God and thought they knew more than he did and thought they had more power and they did not need God.
Let’s compare them to God in his strength. I believe most of them do not want to even listen to God or don’t think they need him. Matter of fact, I think most want to do away with everything he stands for. Now let’s take a look at what power really is.
Job 38:1-8: “Then God answered Job out of the whirlwind. He said, “Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the Earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched the line upon it? Where upon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the cornerstone thereof when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?"
I believe everyone in America needs to read Job, chapters 38-42, and see what power really is. Another thing I believe is if our leaders would read it, they might understand where God is coming from and see, like George Washington did, when he said “It is impossible to govern the world without God.” Some of our leaders may want God to bless America and then live like hell, or say “I am a Christian,” and believe in abortion and same sex marriages, homosexuality and every ungodly thing in the world. This kind of country cannot stand.
Psalms 9:17-20: “The wicked shall be turned into Hell and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten, the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Arise, O Lord, let not man prevail, let the heathen be judged, in thy sight. Put them in fear, O Lord; that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”
