One Constant

17 to him who struck down great kings,
His love endures forever.
18 and killed mighty kings—
His love endures forever.
19 Sihon king of the Amorites
His love endures forever.
20 and Og king of Bashan—
His love endures forever.
21 and gave their land as an inheritance,
His love endures forever.
22 an inheritance to his servant Israel.
His love endures forever. Psalm 136:17-22

It’s easy to think that the United States will always remain a superpower and dominate the military, financial, and political landscape. When you’re on top, who or what could “dethrone” you, right?

Well, Old Testament kings often learned the hard way that their kingdoms were temporary. In other words, no earthly power – past, present, or future – is permanent.

Leaders rarely learn from the mistakes of others. They foolishly think they are different and will last longer than the rest. In the end, though, the “kingdoms” crumble from within due to corruption, immorality, and unsustainable taxation and regulations.

Kings and kingdoms come and go but God remains constant.

When the political landscape changes, He remains the same.
