What an awful position the world is in when one unstable leader gets into a war of words with another unstable leader. We know how easily Trump turns to mindless retaliation, which means all Kim Jong Un has to do is insult Trump’s tiny hands and the war is on.
It seems our only hope is that the military men in Trump’s cabinet will remain saner than Trump himself, up to and including refusing to obey foolish orders.
In truth, however, there is a deeper, more solid cause for hope. The Creator and Sustainer of the Universe can guide of through this dangerous time. He is the Lord of History. He can keep us within bounds if necessary. And these do seem to be necessary times!
The lives of hundreds of thousands of people are in the hands of Trump and Kim John Un. if that is not scary enough to move us to prayer, nothing will.
