America is on the ropes. We're nearly broke, we've already spent all the money that was supposed to be in a "lock box" for payment of social security, our military is being stripped down while given more and more difficult overseas assignments, the border is wide open and we likely have terror cells waiting for a call to action right here in the USA. The government fudges the statistics to make it look like things are going well when they aren't and instead of turning to God for our salvation we fall for gimmicks and schemes from politicians who are self-absorbed despite their soaring rhetoric.
But we need not look to the future with gloom and doom for we have the Way, Truth and Life right at our side. Additionally, there are signs that we as a nation are awakening. Whether or not you do or don't like Donald Trump, he has risen to prominence because of this awakening, for the promises and the hype of our leaders on the Republican side have fallen flat with their lack of accomplishment and substance, and even the Democrats have shown that the given of a Hillary nomination is by no means a sure bet. And then there was the announcement by Speaker Boehner that he was going to resign, finally realizing that the people are energized against his weak leadership.
I certainly don't have a crystal ball, but I would bet that Mitch McConnell will be facing a similar situation to that of Boehner although it is at best an uncertain bet. And whether or not Trump continues in his lead or a Carson or a Cruz or someone else comes to the forefront it is likely that it won't be Jeb Bush, the odds on favorite in the early days despite Establishment yearning. And Hillary is in for the challenge of her life and it is just a question of whether or not the Establishment can protect her sufficiently to survive.
But here's the thing: whether it's now or later, Americans are very disgusted with their choices and are not likely to go silent if the Establishment of both parties pulls it out again. So the political aspect of our future could very easily show a positive change. Now if only we could get our spiritual side in order and once again realize the important of a godly America. Then we could prosper again as never before. But be that as it may, the future will include the return of the Savior, and for the sake of all of us, I hope each of us has our heart in the right place before it is too late. Will we face victory or defeat? Well, unless we call for His guidance and grace in dealing with what we face, defeat is inevitable. But with the Way, the Truth and the Life as our guiding force, we cannot fail.
Bring America back to God and our Savior, His Son Jesus Christ. As the wonderful hymn of the same name says, There's Victory in Jesus.
