Proverbs 21:1 (NASB) The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.”  Proverbs 21:1 (MSG) “Good leadership is a channel of water controlled by God; he directs it to whatever ends he chooses.”

You are troubled or may become troubled over the political unrest in America.  Perhaps the Lord will speak to you in the words that follow.  Read prayerfully what follows;

For years, I ran away from any involvement in political things.  I grew to hate politics.  And because of my attitude, I saw only the negative and disparaging in the debates and rhetoric.  But over time, the Lord has shown me the need to embrace politics in the same as Jesus did.  He corrected and chastised leaders who were false and hurtful to people (Pharisees and tax collectors for example).  But at the same time, He did not turn nor run away.  He embraced those who were doing good and blessed them even if they were not perfect (Caesar for example) Jesus stayed engaged in the daily race.

The Lord says, “I want to tap and commission you to become involved.  You are not to become corrupted by politics like some others.  Be alerted to that danger.  But dig in and find your place, says the Lord.”

Lord, I pray for the one reading this message right now.  Place your hand upon them.  Send them forth into the battle in their own way to the limits of their abilities.  Reward them in their inner person for their obedience and faithfulness.

Let’s discuss and pray together about this, shall we?
