Bear with me as I start this post with very blunt words: If you are maligning, making sarcastic comments, or posting disparaging remarks on social media concerning The President of the United States, 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 no coincidence that the media and many people from the liberal side of politics are so driven to destroy our elected President without even giving him a chance to preside. 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. I am not saying that we have a nation of demon possessed people who, among other things, march in protest, or that demons are running the airwaves. I am saying, however, that these people are blind, willing participants in the schemes of the devil 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)
Christian friends, don’t be a part of division! Ever!Do I think Donald Trump is our savior? No, I sure don’t. Jesus is! I do not know Trump’s personal relationship with God, but I do know that he is surrounding himself with people who are born again, who openly profess Jesus Christ, and God placed them all there, including Donald Trump.
…For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. (Romans 13:1)
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 and are having a hard time praying for him, 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 Trump….just the same as He did for you and me (Psalm 139:16). Before the foundation of the world; He chose us! (Ephesians 1:4)
…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)
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 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.
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, and the safety of those around him.
- 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.
From my regular blog: AmusingMargaret.comIn my last post, I said I would write about The Pit. Forgive me, I felt this was more important when I considered this morning's events of the shooting in Virginia. Hatred is a fast-growing cancer, my friends. Please do not let it grow in you!
