The mistake of believing in men to solve our problems was clearly seen during the past election (Psalm 146:3-5; Jeremiah 17:5-8). We now have people protesting in the streets and needing therapy because of the results of the election. No man brings blessings of prosperity to a nation—instead that is done by the hand of the Lord, and He does so because that nation is living right in His eyes (Proverbs 14:34, 11:11). Yes, when a man’s ways please God, He causes his foes to be at peace with him (Proverbs 16:7).
God told the nation of Israel He will bless them around the clock, if they remain faithful (Deuteronomy 28:1-6). And that is what will happen in each case when people put God first and view the man as simply the instrument though which God works. So yes, we do need politicians because they will be the tool used by God to bring his wonderful blessings upon a nation. But we should never think that the blessings brought forth during a President’s four-year-term are the sole creation of the man alone (Daniel 4:28-37).
