As the serious leadership crisis in our country plays itself out, we are worried. Who would not be? During our worship service on Sunday I asked God to give me something to say to you and the Lord brought this passage to mind.
Psalm 20:7 - "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
Another passage comes to mind: 2 Chronicles 7:13-15 “If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place."
Note both of these passages makes one thing clear: the outcome of this battle does not lie in the hands of politicians or in a powerful family. God is ultimately in charge. God invites us to be part of the solution. Note especially the phrase "if my people". Translated if you and I who believe in Jesus could channel our concerns in God's direction and speak to him about it God will hear and heal our land. Lets not just pray for a comfortable situation for ourselves but let us pray for the healing of our divided, broken land. Lets pray boldly for godly leaders.
To this end we are taking a group of people to pray together with a million others on the 22 April. We'd love you to join us! Click below to find out more.
Lets take our concerns to the one who can and promises to make a difference if we will call out to Him
