When Hugo Chavez died last week, the liberals mourned because they love authoritarian regimes that run roughshod over the liberties of the peoples they subdue. Government is glorified and individual freedom is crushed. In such governments, the people have little they can say without fear of the sword and are forced to cry out to the government for help.

Even so, the wicked come to an end, and their day of judgment is calling. Nevertheless, we must not boast in the death of our enemies, but we do rejoice in the sovereignty of God and rest in His Divine will.

The Psalmist said it best: “In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.
But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.” Psalm 37:10-11

May we be meek and remember that our country was founded upon the idea that men need Christ and must cling to Him as the Great Provider. A limited government is all they need, just something used to restrain evil men: foreign and domestic.  Horrifically, we have left Christ and clung to Uncle Sam for refuge.

May we return to Christ and stand firm in the faith and know that He sits upon His throne.
