The Day After

We have some new leaders in our country today. Just who they are, I am not sure as I have not checked the TV as of yet. But who ever they are, we as Christians have a duty to pray for our leaders everyday. Remember God is still in control!

Thank you Father for our new leaders, and Lord I pray that you will guide them in their decisions, and keep their feet on your path. Father, I pray they seek you each day before they begin making decisions that will affect our Nation. Lord, I pray that they will remember that we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD, not under man. Lord, I pray that Christians will remember that you ordain all authority and that they will continue to pray for our new leaders everyday. In Jesus name, AMEN!

Yesterday we talked about choice, now is the time to choose who you will serve. Will you serve God, or will you serve man and flesh? God is a jealous God, but He is a gentleman and He will not force you to choose Him. This is a heart decision. What does your heart tell you? Look at your life. What do you see? Do you see peace and joy in your life? Do you see overflowing abundance of more than enough in your life? Do you see good health in your life? Do you see strong loving relationships in your life? Do you have the assurance of knowing that when you die, you will be with the Father and the Son in Heaven for all eternity, and there is no doubt in your mind about this?

If you could not answer yes to these questions, then you need to look at the choices you have been making. Do you make your choices based on what the word of God tells you to do? Or do you make choices based on what your flesh or your peers tell you to do? The way to know whether or not what you are doing is right or wrong, is to see what does God have to say about it? Are you living with some sort of sin in your life that you have not let go of? If you are then you may not have been able to answer yes to all of the above questions. If there is something in your life that you have not let go of, and given to the LORD and asked for forgiveness and then turned away from, then you need to do it now, so that you may be forgiven, and so that you may have the fullness and joy in life that God promises His children. If you yourself have some grievances or unforgiveness in any area of your life toward any person, then you yourself can not be forgiven, and your prayers can not be heard. Remember to let it go, unforgiveness is like a cancer that eats away at you little by little until it totally consumes you and your thoughts, and then you have no where to go but down.

Make a choice today, no matter who won the election to choose Jesus and watch your life change for the better. This is the change you need in your life, not the change of a politician. God's promises are truth, and real, and you will see change in your life if you choose Him. You can not always believe or trust in a politician's promises, that is why it is so important to PRAY for them. AMEN!

Acts 17 v 30-31......Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead......

You see God is still in control because He has ordained the one He raised from the dead, and He is the one who will ultimately rule this nation. AMEN!
