I left work early today in order to watch Donald Trump's inauguration. I dare say there are many internet blogs around the world considering this issue right now. I was interested to note the repeated use of the Bible and religious leaders to participate in the ceremony. Although it is true that many a potentate has cynically used religion to support their positions and their power, I still found it refreshing that a world leader would invoke scripture. Apart from our coronation ceremony I can't imagine a British prime minister ever quoting the Bible upon entering Number 10.
Despite the protests of people in America and around the world who clearly only like democracy when the outcome goes their way, I pray God's hand upon the new president: that He might restrain him as well as guide him until such time as the Lord returns.
