Daily Digest #215

Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? —Exodus 15:11

I was watching Obama's inauguration last night. It was a delight to witness God being honored by different people, including the president. What an opportune time to speak of His power over our lives in front of millions of crowd patiently waiting out there in the cold, and the whole world from their tv screens. There were calls for inner change, and virtues tested by time were stressed. Even though it seemed usual to hear these kinds of advice in an inaugural speech, I am sure that some lives were truly changed yesterday. Our world lacks faith and love nowadays. Our hopes often cling onto people or society's system alone, and both, separated or combined, will never be strong enough to endure the world's trials without God's help and guidance.

For this, let us pray. May God bless and guide all our leaders. May they seek His will in serving others. May they bring peace and unity among their people. May God be glorified in everything that they do. And may we do our part by making that change within ourselves. Pray always.
