Can pigs fly?
When we look at the U.S. debt situation, the word “hopeless” often comes to mind, even if you are quite the optimist. Though no situation is ever truly hopeless when we serve a sovereign God, we still need to be realistic.
Faith is a great thing when it is placed in the right hands. Take God, for example. Trusting in Him is a “sure bet”. We may not get all we want, but He will certainly provide for all of our needs like it says in Philippians 4:19,“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
The trouble in this world begins when we place faith in the wrong hands. In this case, we often place far too much trust and confidence in our political leaders. This is where my concerns lie, in that, I do not believe politicians will ever do what is necessary to fix the U.S. budget issues. I mean leaders who can’t come to an agreement on less than 1.5% of the budget ($50 billion in cuts) certainly are living in never-never land.
