I NEED A WORD
Here lately it seems that GOD isn’t talking very much or doesn’t have very much to say to me. It may be because that when he speaks, I’m not listening.
As I go around Christian people some are always saying; “GOD told me” this and that. To hear them talk they have a pipeline to heaven where they have an ongoing dialogue with GOD and they converse with HIM constantly getting directions for all they do.
This may be true because GOD isn’t talking to me that much and the reason may be because others have all HIS attention and he is too busy to get around to me. Or it may not be true and they are having a self induced conversation with an imaginary friend.
Do we from time to time get a word from the LORD? The answer is simply stated, yes we do.
A recent example of how this works in my own life was before I went to sleep the other night I was thinking; “GOD is sure quite lately,” that is, HIM speaking within me, and I decided to pray about this, so I said; “LORD I would like a word of encouragement or instruction or something.”
As I laid there a word came to me that I didn’t want to hear, and that was – –
“You need to pray for your leaders.”
Now I knew the scriptures that admonished Christians to hold up and pray for the leadership of this country, and up out of my memory came the scripture 1 TIM 2 :1-2 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
I got what I asked for a word from GOD confirmed by the scripture but I didn’t like it.
The last thing I wanted to do was pray for our sitting president because I don’t like where he is leading us.
After settling down I began to see a different picture, I saw a man who is far over his head with responsibility, and he needs GOD’S help more than he realizes.
Whether he will humble himself and follow GOD’S leading is not my responsibility, my job is to do what GOD has directed me to do, and that is to pray for him. The next part was to pray for the Congress, that peace shall be in those chambers. That within their disagreements there shall always be unity, and one body with one agenda, and that is the good for the citizens of this country.
Well agree or disagree it’s of no matter as long as the spirit of unity is preserved. Listen to the song below, and even if you disagree with my rant it will bless you and make up for my lack of ability to bless! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KUmDuQP1mQ&feature=related
