Out instincts tell us that something is amiss in Washington, D.C., our nation's capital. We don't specifically know the issues, but we know that things do not appear to be normal. The news media appears to be bursting at the seams, trying desperately to hold back from speaking secrets that they seemingly know or believe would be dangerous to speak. Elected officials try to appear busy with everyday activities, but their pretense is pregnant with anticipation. Whether theirs is negative or positive anticipation cannot yet be determined. Moreover, recent events of historic importance, instead of being used as a launching ramp to propel participants to a new level of diplomacy, seemed to create greater problems.
So, what is it that has the ether in such a state of expectant anxiety? Rumor has it that our government is in shambles, similar to what has happened in Greece, in Egypt, in Libya, and is happening in other countries at this very moment. In other countries, the problem may stem from the fact that they no longer are confident of who their leaders are, or the direction in which the leaders wish to take the country. America's problems seem to stem from the fact that it knows who its leaders are, and the direction in which they wish to take the country, but its political infrastructure appears stubbornly indestructible, refusing to turn toward and bow down to the northern army.
As the Scriptures note, anything built on a foundation of truth shall never be destroyed. There was a time when America, including those in the nation's capital, believed in God and therefore founded the country on a solid foundation. They had not only a global perspective and foresight, but also the wisdom of God, and took virtually every possible contingency into consideration when they built the nation on a solid foundation of faith. However, just as armor needs to be worn in order to provide protection, so too we need to implement wisdom's foresight in order to benefit from its protection.
