If you see the oppression of the poor and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness in a province, do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials are over them.
Oh my goodness; what an on-time Word for what our country is going through. Don’t lose perspective; GOD has everything under HIS control. Man thinks he is in control but he walks in his own vanity. Stop looking at what man is directing you to look at and see what GOD desires for you. Justice and righteousness is all around the throne of GOD and GOD loves justice. We are not forgotten and we are not alone. GOD is with us. What is going on in this world is not ear marked for us. We live by a higher authority in CHRIST JESUS. We live in this world but we are not of this world. Sure we must be perfect stewards to the law of this world but that does not mean that we must supersede the law because the Word of GOD tells us that we are no longer under the law. We must live peaceably with everyone. But don’t allow the conversations that the world has be your conversation. Find out what GOD has to say about what is in your environment; GOD always has a right now Word for our situations. Our President who is worth millions is saying that the poor should not be subjected to what congress has planned for the poor. Congressmen and women are worth millions and they believe that their financial net worth should not be used for purposes other than what they design their worth for. Such as extravagant parties; lovely out of the country vacations; sending their off spring to Ivy League schools; setting their off springs up in business; the purchase of mansions; luxury automobiles and yachts. These vain wealthy persons do not consider that those who are financially below them are struggling to pay for health care; meeting the due date on their utility bills; mortgage / rent; car notes; higher education for their off springs and so on. So remember to not lean on your understanding of what you read in the newspapers and listen to on the news. Know that GOD is our provider and HE will take care of us. That’s HIS promise.
