“The leech has two daughters.
‘Give! Give!’ they cry.
“There are three things that are never satisfied,
four that never say, ‘Enough!’:
the grave, the barren womb,
land, which is never satisfied with water,
and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’
There is no doubt that this was not intended to be an exhaustive list. God is not surprised by our government. And he is aware of our problems. The question I have is this. Are we crying out to the right person to bring about change? I know I am vocal about my desire to have our government live within its means, and begin paying down the debt instead of simply servicing it as so many have done with the homes they cannot now afford.
But at the core, is it likely that enough (there’s that word again) people will band together to elect men and women who will begin making tough choices, and reduce the largess of government?
It is more likely that God will hear, and we should cry out to him? The people of the early Jewish nation were enslaved in Egypt. The situation looked bleak. Yet, God heard their cries, and brought about a change of heart, where the people of Egypt were glad to see the people of Israel leave.
So is it possible for something similar to happen in the United States? Do you trust that God is able? I say it is possible, and God is able. I just pray he is willing. Why would I think that he might not be? For that I’ll leave you with another Proverb.
Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes
will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.
