Merely Mortal

All seems to hang in the balance on Election Day. There are no more standard deviations, just chasmic shifts. But it’s always been that way. There are bad kings and good kings. The king is dead, long live the king. The Bible says this to those who think a man (or woman) will be our salvation.

Do not trust in princes, in mortal man, in whom there is no salvation. Psalm 146:3

And this.

Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; for why should he be esteemed? Isaiah 2:22

We do hope for a righteous leader, but at best we get is a benevolent dictator. That’s why God was angry with Israel, who wanted a king instead of him!

The Lord said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. 1 Samuel 8:7

There is one lasting hope in the this world, and He is the one who created it.

How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever. Psalm 146:5-6
