Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you. (Psalm 33:20-22 ESV)
Our trust must be in the Lord. We may celebrate a nation as it does good. But remember, a nation is a collection of people, people are fallen, they fail. Trust in God who never fails.
