It is no coincidence that liberalism and the media are still desperately seeking to destroy our President two years into his term. What you see is anger from satan, himself, because he was JustThisClose to destroying our nation with a political spirit that was choking the life out of us. And he has not given up! We have a nation of people who are blind, willing participants in the devil’s schemes to divide our country, because he knows that if we are divided, we cannot stand:
But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand…” (Matthew 12:25 NKJV)
Christians, please bear with me as I type these blunt, but desperately needed words: If you are maligning, making sarcastic comments, or posting disparaging remarks on social media concerning the President, you are not walking according to the dictates of God’s word. Please don’t do that! Speak evil of no man. (Titus3:2)
Don’t allow yourself to be used by the hand of
the enemy as a tool to further divide America.
“Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. It is God’s will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you’re a danger to society. Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.” (1 Peter 2:13-17 MSG)
It is not my intention to offend, but perhaps to be on the offensive…that is, to join the (spiritual) battle for our great nation in prayer and truth, and to get those who have not joined to do so by praying daily for our leaders and particularly our President. There is no better time than now! If you do not like your president for whatever reason, that is all the more reason to pray for him! But if you find it difficult to add him to your prayers, keep reading, I’ll give you some starting points.
But first, understand that before Donald Trump was born, God had a plan for him. He wrote in His book the days fashioned for that man just the same as He did for you and me. “ …You covered me in my mother’s womb… Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” (Psalm 139:13, 16 NKJV) Before the foundation of the world; He chose us! (Ephesians 1:4)
It is our responsibility to pray for our leaders…do you want a great awakening in America? I know I do! I long for the day God heals our land. We won’t get that just because Donald Trump is in office; we sure won’t get it if we walk in disobedience to what His word is directing us to do! We will start to see revival sweeping our nation when we humble ourselves and seek God. (2 Chronicles 7:14) Otherwise, we remain in a state of complicity in the demise of America.
… Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
(Romans 13:1 NIV)
If Jesus often prayed often,
how much more do we need to pray?
Prayer points for President Trump:
- Pray for his salvation, that he be filled with the Holy Spirit.
- Pray that his eyes be opened so that he sees, that his ears be opened so that he hears from God, and pray that his heart is opened so that he understands.
- Pray for maturity in his position.
- Pray that the Holy Spirit infiltrates his every decision.
- Pray that God gives him spiritual wisdom.
- Pray that President Trump is consistently surrounded by God-fearing, praying men and women.
- Pray that God gives him strength to follow through with Godly decisions, even in the face of much opposition.
- Pray for his safety.
Pray for Truth to sweep our nation, that the blinders be removed from God’s people, and that the Holy Spirit will permeate and saturate this nation in a way that those of us living in this day have never seen.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.
As a side note (or a post script), the people who get the maddest when
I share this type of post is, sadly, Christians, which leads me to Part 2.
