Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Being a leader takes great courage, dedication, and determination. One other necessary quality that a great leader must have is humility before his God.
Today all world leaders stand in an awesome position of responsibility. Why? Because an all-seeing Supreme God holds each of them accountable for their Nation and its constituents. God has always been in control of the nations, and His sovereignty stands true today.
You’ve heard the expression, “The buck stops here?” That is especially true of those who are in a leadership position.
With the responsibility that a leader holds comes great accountability. Any one of us who has been in a leadership position surely understands the weight of responsibility that rests upon the shoulders of that one person at the top. Imagine having millions of people looking to you for your wisdom, your judgment, and, ultimately, your decisions. Wouldn’t you need the prayers of all of your constituents?
Matthew 12:25 – And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
America, we are in a very critical time in our country when we must band together and pray for the leader of our Nation. Whether or not you like your President, whether or not you voted him into office does not matter. It does not even matter whether or not you plan to support him in a new election. We must cry out to God for him now and with fervor. Because he is our leader, we rise and fall as a Nation based upon his actions. This awesome responsibility for millions rests upon his head, and we must cry out to God for Him.
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
One of the many lessons that the Coronavirus has taught us is that as people, we are much more alike than different. Covid-19 has crossed our artificial state and national lines, color lines, income lines, and age lines. It has not cared as it afflicted the rich and the poor alike. We are all human beings, and we are all Americans in this country. In the Old Testament, whenever God wanted to speak to his chosen people, the Israelites, He always called Moses aside to direct him in how he was to lead the people. God still speaks and directs His leaders today.
Psalm 22:27-28 King James Version (KJV)
27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.
Saints, we have all been praying, but the question arises, how have we been directing our prayers? In all likelihood, we have been “loosing and binding,” cursing the root, pleading the Blood of Jesus, and rebuking this storm. We are standing firm on faith and praising, magnifying, honoring, and glorifying our God. We are lifting Jesus and excitedly awaiting His return. Most of us have been witnessing and gathering the lost into the ark of safety. All of these actions are excellent, and we have been successful in the direction that we have taken. We have even fasted and are standing firm on the Word of God for His protection against this enemy called Covid-19. But my question tonight is, have we sincerely gotten on our faces before God and cried out in unison and intercession for the man that we call Commander-in-Chief?
18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
We are in a situation in which we must join our hearts together and undergird our leader. We must direct our prayers to God on his behalf. This consolidated prayer has to do with our survival as a Nation. Can we forget our bipartisan attitude, our desires for previous times, and any criticism of our current leader? We must humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, and as one united people undergird him, for as he falls, so do we. God is speaking, Saints of the Most High God. Are we equal to the task? This appeal to you tonight is based on a word from the Lord. May God bless us all.
