When I think of nations I can’t help but remember that they are but a drop in a bucket to God. Think about that. How huge is God’s scope of vision? How utterly immense is His authority over all of creation? While it may be very difficult for any of us to imagine, God can save a nation, in a solitary day.
The familiar passage in Isaiah 59 reminds us that God was looking for just one man who would stand up for truth, and of His amazement that none could be found. One man or woman can make a difference. They always have. All it takes is the strength to bow a knee, and call upon the Name that is above every other name.
Father, I thank you that nothing is too big for You. Nothing can compare with Your power and wisdom. Today I lift my voice to You, that You would be exalted in this nation. I pray that the leaders of this nation would honour and exalt Your Name, and that Your righteousness would be manifested in the market places of this great land. In Jesus’ Name we stand against the foolish dark powers that think they will triumph over You! Nothing, absolutely nothing, can stand against You Oh God, for You are mighty to deliver Your people. Our prayer oh Lord is that You would indeed make haste to deliver, and shine upon this land with Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Military might does not make a mighty nation, but rather moral might makes a nation mighty. Proverbs 13:34 tells us that righteousness is what exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Our nation as with all nations needs to understand that their legacy will not be seen from the perspective of their humanly wise legislations, or by the size of their welfare programs, but rather by the depth of their devotion and adherence to the laws of the Kingdom of God.
Open mockery of the things of God is prevalent in the halls of governmental facilities, but God will not be mocked for long. As He is the King of all Kings and the Lord of all Lords, soon the frailty of the imaginations of mankind will be shown to be the folly that it is. Godly men and women in the halls of government are assaulted daily with the opportunity to feel undone by the few in their number. However our God is not hindered by the size of the army, but by the size of the spirit.
Father, I pray for those in authority in our land, and particular today for those who bear Your name unashamedly. Father, remind them that there is NOTHING to prevent You from saving by many or by few. Bolster and build their spirits today to trust in You with all their heart. Let them call upon Your Name before every committee meeting and directive they must act upon. Let them choose the fear of God and not the fear of man. And Lord, let them see the reward of their Godly actions, lest they faint in their minds. Strengthen them, encourage them, and bless their families and homes in a mighty way, in Jesus’ Name, Amen
