Day 46 | Zak Calloway
“God said, “I removed the load from your shoulders. I set your hands free from carrying heavy baskets. You called out when you were in trouble, and I saved you. I answered you out of a thundercloud. I put you to the test at the waters of Meribah. Selah”Psalm 81:6-7 NIRV
Oh man is this Psalm not applicable today more than ever, hahaha! The government has been a source of confusion and sadness for us lately so it’s easy to denounce the current world order and want to tear it all down (at least, for me it is). We see in this Psalm that God not only instituted but also intends the worlds governments to partner with God to bring balance and life in the world. So the challenge this Psalm brings to me is, rather than giving up on the government, how do I stay engaged and seek justice in spite of our systems being overwhelming and broken?
