To live a life dependent on a man, whether that is government or your ownself is bondage. The Lord saved us, delivered and freed us from the kingdom of darkness, out from the house of bondage. So that we could freely live for him and by faith trust and depend on him to take care of us. While in Egyptian bondage the children of Israel had no freedom to do what God created them to do, they couldn’t be fruitful, increase, multiply, have dominion and living like this is a DREAM STEALER and VISION KILLER. But God caused them to be a free people, free to worship him, free to serve him and free to trust him as their provider with no limitations. And just like the freed children of Israel, many Christians today would rather go back to dependence on a man, they would rather fight for their right to be in bondage than fight for the right to freely walk by faith.
Psalm 118: 8-9 says: It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
Princes would be people you think have influence, connections, financial ability, etc. But if you put your hope in a mere mortal man you will live a life filled with failure, disappointments and under a curse (Jeremiah 17:5)
Any aspect of government that results in dependency on men is of the devil and is designed by Satan himself. He has deceived and confused many as to what is “fair” and “just”. There is no one more “fair” and “just” than God and in his fairness (righteousness) and justice he determined that the very people he freed from bondage but refused to trust him and put their faith in him should not go into the promised land with those who did have faith in him. The Lord gave every single one of them an equal opportunity to walk by faith just like he does us today but those that refuse to, will not experience what God has for them. God is a rewarder of our faith (Hebrews 11:6) why should he have rewarded those that refused to not walk by faith equally with those that chose to walk by faith? We may not all have the same equal talents and equal abilities but we all have the same equal opportunity to trust God and walk by faith. But equal opportunity does not mean equal results.
I don’t think I am alone in saying this but I refuse to limit God in my life by living a life dependent on a man, my dependency is on the Lord! What about you?
