Obama: Crime Created by ‘System,’ Successful People ‘Just Lucky,’ ‘Wasn’t Nothin’ You Did’

In his commencement speech to the graduating class at Howard University last weekend, President Obama excused crime in the African American community as something fostered by an “unfair and unjust” system.  He also said successful people were “just lucky” and hinted they didn’t make their success; “It wasn’t nothin’ you did,” he insisted.  Obama appeared at the historically African American Howard University on May 7 to send the graduates off into the world with some inspiring words. But much of what the president said was less inspirational and more conspiratorial.  read

In 2 Kings 7, we read of a land ravaged by famine and cut off from supplies by their enemies. But right in the middle of their troubles, God told Elisha that tomorrow there would be an abundance of flour and barley. How did it happen? God used four lepers! The lepers went to the enemy camp and discovered it totally empty. There was enough food to feed all of Samaria. No matter what, we must not accept defeat; instead, cling to God’s Word, cast out Satan,and believe to see the deliverance of the Lord!

Often we may wonder why God does not heal us immediately when we pray. Perhaps He says, “Let patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4) because the trial of your faith is “much more precious than gold” (1 Pet. 1:7). As He works to bring forth His character in us, we can “count it all joy” (James 1:2)… for He has said, “If you would believe, you would see the glory of the Lord” (John 11:40).

Oh, how I suffered for 7 years during my teenage years because of my constant skin problems that I called “leprosy.” How often I devoured the gospels and studied the recorded healings of Jesus. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17). But when God touched me and healed me in the twinkling of an eye, what rejoicing! My faith and belief in God soared to new levels and in the 49 years since, I have grown stronger and stronger in my faith for healing today. Oh, hang on. “Now thanks be to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ” (2 Cor. 2:14).
