Donald J. Trump was made for ‘such a time as this’

In 2024, the United States of America finds itself at a crucial crossroads that will determine whether the Western world remains free or dissolves into fragmented chaos and iron-fisted tyranny.

In the muck and mire of cultural revolution and global unrest, Americans have begun to wonder what the future holds. The state of the nation – and the world – have rapidly devolved in the wake of Joe Biden’s administration. Destructive policies have denigrated American sovereignty, weakened the U.S. military, and demoralized the youngest generation, who is facing the very real possibility of never owning a home or attaining the American dream.

It seems as if every day brings more bad news and more disappointment. And yet, despite the onslaught of negativity and fearmongering, hope remains.

The Lord provides

During remarks at the Black Conservative Federation Honors Gala last week, retired neurosurgeon and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson spoke candidly on the decline of America and the leadership the people need.

This year, it is clear that President Donald J. Trump will be the prospective Republican presidential nominee, setting him up for a final showdown against Joe Biden’s globalist Democrat machine in November.

“The Lord provides different kinds of leadership for different times,” Dr. Carson explained during his remarks.

Since launching his presidential campaign in 2015, Trump has gone to bat for the Christian and faith community in America perhaps more than any other modern president in history.

Yet, despite the strength and intensity with which he has protected the faith community, it is often the Christian community that is hesitant to throw their support behind Trump. Whether it’s the fact that Trump lived a fast-and-furious billionaire lifestyle in the past or whether it’s his personality they can’t seem to get behind, evangelicals and the religious demographic have been notoriously difficult to appease.

Dr. Ben Carson spoke to this specific issue on Saturday, using a biblical example to illustrate a common-sense point. He said, “King David – who murdered, who committed adultery, who did all kinds of things – God said, ‘He’s a man after my own heart,’ because he repented and he sought redemption from God.”

Dr. Carson also addressed the criticism from voters who may love Trump’s policies but claim they “just can’t stand him.”

He continued, “I say, what if you were sick and you had a terrible disease that required skillful surgery? Which surgeon would you rather have? The one who has terrible bedside manner, but has a tremendous record? Or the one who has a wonderful bedside manner but kills everybody?”

He concluded, “God will provide us with what we need.”

Indeed, God has given America the leadership it needs, even in these distressing and tumultuous times. Donald Trump was the president nobody saw coming, and when he burst onto the political scene years ago, it changed the nation and the world.

For such a time as this

Without Trump, there is a strong argument to be made that the United States would have ceased to exist in 2016 with the prospective election of Hillary Clinton, and there would be no climactic battle to preserve liberty and freedom. “We would already be over that cliff,” Dr. Ben Carson pointed out in his speech.

Lara Trump stated recently on the campaign trail that her father-in-law “was made for such a time as this,” noting that nobody else “would be able to withstand the attacks.”

During a powerful speech delivered at the National Religious Broadcasters Presidential Forum last week, President Trump told a crowd of Christian communicators, “I’m here today because I know that to achieve victory in this fight, just like in the battles of the past, we still need the hand of our Lord, and the grace of Almighty God – we have to have that.”

The Donald Trump of 2024 is a wise and mission-focused leader. He led the country firmly and strongly between 2017 to 2021, and in 2024, he is not only vowing to bring the same style of leadership back to the White House but to also immediately fix the carnage Joe Biden has left behind.

“I’m a very proud Christian, actually,” Trump said at the NRB. He stated that he’s been “very busy” this year “taking the bullets, taking the arrows” on behalf of the American people. With an egregiously long list of felony charges and over-the-top rulings from leftist courts in places like New York, Trump certainly is persecuted like no other president has ever been politically targeted in this country.

The president hammered the importance of the Christian vote home last week, adding, “Christians: they can’t afford to sit on the sidelines in this fight…they have to do what they have to do, and they have to WIN.”

President Trump is the man who chose to jump into the fray and fight for America despite having a wonderful life filled with wealth, luxury, and success. Taking the “bullets” and “arrows” was not something that he had to do.

Dr. Ben Carson’s comments come to mind once again when Americans are forced to look at the smoldering wreckage of Biden’s leadership: “The Lord provides different kinds of leadership for different times.”

In the Bible, Queen Esther saved her people from ruin and destruction because she found the courage to speak up and do what was right during a distressing period of history.

Thousands of years ago, when Esther was painfully considering the ramifications of going to the king on behalf of the Jews, her cousin Mordecai sent her this message: “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

Lara Trump is right – Donald J. Trump was made for such a time as this, and in November, Christians and people of faith in this country should show him the same support and stalwart loyalty that he has shown them over the past several years. The fate of the nation and their freedom to worship depends on it.
