Trusting in God and not in man

With a new administration it could become easy for God’s people to begin trusting in man instead of God to solve America’s problems. It is very easy for us to become complacent when things seem to be going well, but we can never forget that our eyes must always be on God as our source of help.  
 
We see in scripture that when God’s people put their trust in the arm of flesh, the result was always tragic; but when they put their trust in God, He blessed them.
 
In 1 Chronicles, the sons of Reuben, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manassah went to war with some of their enemies and were helped against them. Their enemies were delivered into their hands BECAUSE they cried out to God in the battle. He heeded their prayer BECAUSE they trusted in Him. Many of the enemies were slain because the war was God’s!
 


Another example of divine victory is found in 2 Chronicles : “And Asa cried out to the Lord his God, and said, ‘Lord it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O Lord our God, for we rest on You, and in Your Name we go against this multitude.’” Asa cried out to the Lord, putting his trust in His Name. The Ethiopians were overthrown and could not recover BECAUSE they had been broken before the Lord and His army. Once again the war was God’s!
 
In both of these portions of scripture we can see the blessing as a result of God’s people putting their trust in Him.
 
Today no one man or party can save America from the powers of darkness, from the war that is raging between good and evil. We have won battles in this war through prayer and by putting our trust in God, but we must continue to cry out to Him. If we quit trusting in Him to deliver us from the wicked and the powers of darkness, this victory will only be temporary, and we will find ourselves once again in great captivity.
 
Psalms 20 says, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” The psalmist here expressed his trust in the Lord rather than in the arm of flesh.
 
We must continue to trust in the Lord and cry out to Him for deliverance from the hand of the wicked. We must not allow ourselves to grow comfortable in what may be a time of prosperity. Our trust must be in God alone to turn America back to righteousness!
 
Our prayer for 2017 is that America would receive a spiritual awakening — a revival that sweeps across our nation, turning us back to righteousness. Only then will good overcome evil. We must not grow weary in the battle. We must look to the only One who can deliver us!
 
Psalm 37:38-39 “But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.
