Psalm 33:16 (ESV)

The king is not saved by his great army;
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.

I very rarely make political comments…only when I see a biblical connection or implication.

It’s amazing how many Christians lean to their own understanding rather than trusting God when it comes to national security.

It’s amazing to hear Christians support juvenile threats from two leaders who position themselves like teenagers fighting over a girl.

Returning threats of “Fire and Fury” is not biblical.

The bible talks about reasoning together (Isaiah 1:18). In other words…diplomacy.

The bible talks about turning the other cheek rather than retaliating when being prodded (Matthew 5:38-40).

The bible talks about NOT returning evil for evil (1 Peter 3:9).

These are biblical principles that go beyond personal interactions. At what point do we stop doing it God’s way.

Yes, God allows us to defend ourselves…but never to attack.

And, you can’t compare the Old Testament situations where God commanding Israel to what’s going on today because He was fulfilling a promise to give them the promised land.

Missiles and bullets can’t make a lunatic back down, but God can. God can change the heart and mind. At what point and time does it make sense to NOT do things God’s way?

Every successful king in the bible consulted a man of God before any military action. I wonder if our leaders are following that example.

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
