RCL Daily Devotion for Tuesday, August 20, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Dr. Kimberly Leetch from RCL Worship Resources (see more).


Whether you are politically conservative or liberal, I think you will agree that the American presidential election of 2016 was the most divisive in modern history. President Trump stirred up in people a vast range of emotions from hatred and fear to hope and trust. Whether you are a Trump supporter or not, it is clear to me that the election glaringly showed a desperate need for someone to follow -- a deep longing for a leader we can place our trust in.

I think our longing will never be satisfied as long as we are placing our trust in people. People are fallible. People are flawed. People will fail us. Maybe it is time to shift our allegiance from people to God.

What might this world look like if we placed our trust and faith in a God who does, in fact, lead? What if we followed a leader (God) that is fiercely loyal, who loves radically, and who takes risks for the sake of justice?
