But when he became strong, his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the Lord his God, for he entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense
2 Chronicles 26
Success always brings a test, a snare
If you do not navigate humbly through these dangerous waters, it destroys you just as it has destroyed so many before.

It’s a trap.
is what and where we should be studying prayerfully and setting our hearts on, far away from the hubris of making America great again with no mention of national repentance or humbly seeking God.
