“Post Election Thoughts” (It’s All God [Good]!)

An excerpt from the book “If My People…” by Jack Countryman states:

“…Never-ending prayer has always brought the presence of God. How vast are the possibilities when we pray! Prayer is a wonderful power placed by the Almighty God into the hands of His saints. When we humbly seek His face in prayer, He is moved to act on our behalf and accomplish His desires for us.”

We’ve prayed to God and we did what II Chron. 7:14 instructed us to do. We’ve done our part and now it’s up to God to do His part. “It ain’t over” yet.

But wait; we still have something to do. “We Thank You God for placing the man in office who will (with Your guidance) make a positive change in our nation and those countries who will come in contact with we the people of the United States.” “We thank you that perversion of sexes is not going to be legalized in most states.” “We thank you for gas prices that have come down and continue to decline.”

Now we need to continue to pray for our leaders (yes, even if your candidate did not get elected). We need to continually pray, in thanksgiving and supplication, for those who have been placed in authority over us as a nation. When we do this – we will be a blessed people and nation.

“Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.” (Ish.55; 3-5)

Have a great week and let me hear from you.
