From Us To You

March 1, 2023

If you are a regular Wake Up Right listener, you know I look forward to the day when we no longer flip our clocks back and forth. Every year I am optimistic that “this will be the last year we spring forward!” Unfortunately, like Charlie Brown (me) going to kick the football, Lucy (the politicians) pulls the football away again at the last minute.


Just a few weeks beyond the time that we spring our clocks forward, actual spring happens! Unlike my hope for a change in the way we do our clocks, spring happens no matter what the politicians do! Daniel 2:21 says, “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;”


We are moving into a time that I know will prove to be very contentious. Next year is another presidential election, and several candidates have already announced that they are running, with many more announcements to follow. How should we respond as believers?


First, we should trust that God does indeed know the end from the beginning. Second, we should remain informed so that we can make our decisions based on the Word of God, not the clever sounding words of politicians.


Last year, WRGN did a survey concerning the news here on the station, where many of you expressed your thankfulness for the ability to stay informed from a biblical worldview. This will become even more important as we navigate the troubled waters ahead. We will also continue to encourage you with the fact that ultimately, God will not be surprised at the outcome, whatever it may be (Acts 1:8).


Seeking God’s wisdom,

PS – Speaking of navigating troubled cultural waters, there’s a great conference coming up in our listening area on March 19 about sexuality and gender issues with Dr. Christopher Yuan, who has been a guest on both In the Market with Janet Parshall and Wake Up Right. Learn more >
