The power behind the thrones
For the Lord is our judge,
the Lord is our lawgiver,
the Lord is our king;
it is he who will save us.
You know what I like about these lines?
- First, they outline the three branches of U.S. government. Which I think is quite remarkable.
- Then, they tell us that the REAL power in each of these branches is God himself.
- Finally, they offer a reminder to political activists who are believers:
It is not our political brilliance or moral courage that will ultimately save us.
It is God himself.
It is wonderfully useful to be alert and persuasive.
It is infinitely better, though, to be a warrior in prayer.
