Good Morning January 30

We hear much today about armaments, drones, nuclear bombs, AK-47s, shoulder fired missals. I expect any grade school boy could recite a litany of many more than these. Cold wars, hot wars, arms races, superpowers, nations do all manner of things to be superior to other nations. King David was a warrior also, but he knew a truth that was more important than any amount of swords and soldiers. He penned the words of what we now have as Psalm 33. “No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,…”(vss.16-18) Unfortunately, school boys (of all ages) are taught that might makes right, and the biggest new laser weapon gains the victory. The truth is that no amount of armament can make up the deficit if we lose sight of what Psalm 33 teaches. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…”(vs.12) Is it possible for some of our leaders to learn this?
