Our country is in need of wise counsel. The wisdom of the world seems insufficient for today’s complex problems. Who has the wisdom to lead us?
“The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.” (Psalm 33:11-16)
King David knew where to put his trust. He relied on God’s counsel and humbled himself before the mighty throne of God.
“Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.” (Psalm 33:20-22)
Maybe our country should humble ourselves before the God of heaven, repent of our sins, and allow God to lead us. We need to pray for revival in America and the world. We need to pray for the leadership, including our President.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” (1 Timothy 2:1-6)
Pray for the salvation of leaders all over our world. Pray that God would bring a worldwide revival. Pray for the lost.
