Pray for Our Leaders

Hi, and thanks for joining me today on a 'Walk of Faith'!

I think we've all been taken aback by the events in the past week with the storming of the capitol building and our nation's capitol and the violence and threatened violence that was a part of that event. It gives one pause to wonder what the Bible might have to say about a nation that turns its heart away from the Lord and seeks its own way to find answers.

I'd like to share with you a passage from Psalm 33, verses 10-12 because God's wisdom is made very plain and gives us some direction on what we should be doing in these days. 

"The Lord brings the council of the nations to nothing, he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The council of the Lord, however, stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose god is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage."

Now obviously that refers, in large measure, to the Jews who were the chosen nation that God has forth as an example for how all peoples and nations are to relate to the Creator God. But it's also true for us in the 21st century as we think about our own nation's heritage. 

The plans of the people will undoubtedly fail and frustrated by a God whose agenda will be maintained. So I would advise you, as we get ready for a change in leadership in this nation, to be diligent in prayer, not only for the peace of our people, but pray for our leaders, both the exiting ones and the incoming ones and those who are staying on. That they might seek God's wisdom and God's will and agenda for this nation rather than their own.

That we might be in God's favor and under his protection moving forward.

Have a great day!
