Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Psalms 127:1 KJV
Absolutely nothing will really amount to anything unless God is involved in it.
Oh, yes, I know that great fortunes are made and wonderful things are done and created by unregenerate man’s ability. But no matter how great those things may be, only what’s done in Christ will have lasting value.
National leaders, whole societies and nations come and go. Only God can keep a people during the passage of time. Only God, through Christ, can establish an individual throughout eternity.
