This week’s Praise Project revolves around recent events in politics. As someone who respects the United States Constitution, the President’s executive order the other day reeks of Constitutional malpractice. Having said that, it occurred to me not long ago that when we get right down to it, the Constitution is a piece of paper that men signed hundreds of years ago setting up the framework for this country and in which millions of people have respected as sacred. But the Constitution is only as sacred a document as the people in charge deem it to be. As soon as those in power decide it is worth no more than the paper on which it was printed, it loses it’s power. In that vein, this week I’m praising God:
1). That He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Despite what man decides about God, His Son, the Holy Spirit and His Word, they all remain holy and sacred. No one can strip God of Who He is.
2). That my name is written in a Book and can’t ever be erased.
3). That when man fails me, God is faithful and truthful and trustworthy.
4). “He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars” (Daniel 2:21, NLT).
5). That God is not one dimensional as I often see Him.
6). That the Christmas season is coming and with it the reminder of hope which is why none of this turmoil really matters.
7). The reminder of what really matters: salvation of my lost friends and neighbors.
