Times of Trouble in America
I’m sure there are many who recognize and agree with me that America has been in trouble for quite some time. There has never been a time where we instantly see trouble in real time like what’s happening today across our nation. There are abortions, murders, killings, personal assaults and widespread destruction of property happening from sea to shining sea. So bad is it that we have become acclimated to the daily assaults through the media and from members of Congress that offer no relief, help or hope. If you watch the Democratic debates there are no viable solutions being offered, only doom and gloom in the days ahead? The outward effect has been their display of hate for each other and the marginalization of the very voters they turn away.
Today’s devotional asks “What Do You See During Times of Trouble?”
Referring to Acts 7:55-56 – “But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.’”
I began thinking of today’s crop of politicians who constantly throw up roadblocks and obstacles in hopes of tripping up President Trump and hindering or obstructing his administration from moving forward or gaining ground with his domestic or foreign policy. In their eyes Trump is in big trouble.
It would be true if the man they see in the White House was the same man who craved for power and notoriety in New York social circles of yesteryear. If he was pursuing his own agenda and not that of a higher power, he would have stumbled over the logs and potholes hoisted in front of him at every turn.
President Trump has not been deterred by the bevy of betrayals, slanderous and hostile commentaries or even the unjust manner in which he has had to deal with over the past 3 years of his administration. In fact every obstacle had become a stepping stone. Every pothole becomes a mud-hole miring down those who push it as a narrative in front of him. Rather than focus on the obstacles, Trump adjusts, recalibrates and moves ahead with his eyes constantly on the end game – Making American Great Again!
One need only compare and contrast the Trump fan base with the competition to see that America has not seen its best days yet. When man places God and country ahead of himself, he has already won! When he treats a janitor as he does a CEO; shakes hands with a security guard and sincerely thanks our military and a veteran as Trump has done and continues to do – He will always have my backing and support!
I look forward to 5 more years of the Trump Presidency! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
