In God We Trust

2 Samuel 7:28O Sovereign Lord, you are God!  Your words are trustworthy. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – Imagine if you will a sovereign that was not trustworthy.

Sovereign – Possessing supreme or ultimate power.

Trustworthy – Able to be relied on to do or provide what is needed or right.

Such a sovereign would, without fail, be able to deliver on his promises, but could not be counted on not to fail.  By definition, this person could not be considered trustworthy.

Now consider someone that you might otherwise consider as trustworthy, but may not have the power to always deliver on their promises.  By definition, this person could not be considered trustworthy (reliable).

We can now begin to see why sovereign and trustworthy results in the proclamation “you are God!”  We can also see why the motto “In God We Trust,” was not chosen lightly, and why it should not lightly be cast aside.

Not Chosen Lightly – Our National Motto – ‘In God We Trust’ – was not chosen lightly. It reflects a basic recognition that there is a divine authority in the universe to which this nation owes homage – Ronald Reagan.

Not Lightly Cast Aside – The guiding principle of this Nation has been, is now, and ever shall be IN GOD WE TRUST – John F. Kennedy.

My Advice – Take “In God We Trust” as a guiding principle.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
