“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6, NIV).
It's no small wonder that many Americans are feeling discouraged and powerless. America is a democratic republic founded upon godly principles. Elected leaders are supposed to stand up for the folks who elected them. Sadly, it happens very little of the time. Instead, they somehow manage to accrue wealth far exceeding what their annual paychecks would seem to allow while doing precious little to help others.
