Well, SCOTUS, or should I say Chief Justice Roberts handed down the so-called Obamacare decision today. Despite what the court has decided, the truth remains as stated by the four dissenting justices that there is nothing constitutional about the bill. It is a travesty of justice and has put the final stake into the heart of the Constitution.
I believe that most of us have really missed the point, that being that this argument was never about health care for the few or for the many. This argument has always been and will continue to be about freedom and liberty. Freedom and liberty have been stripped under the guise of caring for people without healthcare. Yet anyone who has the ability and manages to take two seconds to think this through will come to the conclusion that not only will those with the most need not have access to the best healthcare. Out of all of the reasons why this is true naming one will suffice. We already have the best healthcare in the world, but very soon that healthcare will become so expensive that rationing will of necessity take place. One need only look to England and every other socialized-medicine nation. Beyond that, freedom will be stripped because now the government can regulate EVERYTHING you do; from what you eat to how many times a week you must work out to how much you are allowed to weigh.
Now to the point of this blog: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God” (Prov. 20:7, NASB). How many of you, like I, placed his/her trust in the Supreme Court’s ability and faithfulness to uphold the rule of the Constitution. Well, WAKE UP CALL! That’s what I heard. God is in control. We may have to go through some very hard times in the very near future, but the Lord has promised that He would supply all of our needs “according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19). He has promised that because of Christ’s sacrifice and current priestly ministry, we are able to “draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16).
As Christians we have no need to trust in chariots (insert government) or horses (SCOTUS), but we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God (Psalm 20:7).
God bless and keep your minds set on things above where your life is hidden with Christ in God (Col. 3:1-4).
I pray this helps.
