Have you prayed for Obama today?
For anyone to attain, one needs not to harbor unforgiveness in his or her heart. We also want to release any negativity we have toward anyone in our lives and we need to take responsibility in controlling our thoughts to be good which in turn create our reality. Here I will address one area in which many of us may be having a tough time in taking responsibility in changing things.
Regardless of how and what you and I think about the man who currently is in the Oval office and what he has and has not done, ultimately it is our fault, and our responsibility to change it. I’m not saying that it is only because we voted (or did not vote) this person into office, but that it is with our complacency to our society in whole that has made the environment suitable for such a thing to happen. Now that the result of all of this is that Obama is in office, the only way we can change anything is to pray to God. Nothing in this world is changed without God’s approval. We can only commune with God and ask Him to change us to change others.
I have some news for you that you may not know, and there is a very good chance that Obama himself does not know it. Here it is: “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord…” Did you know that? Do you think Obama himself knows this? Obama may think that what he is doing is "his" agenda but it is not. It is "His" agenda!
Of course, Obama is not a “king” but he is the person who we put in power over us, so in a very true sense, he is a “king”. You, I and Obama may think that he is in control of his actions, but again I say that he is not! Here’s the “kicker” which is the real key that I want to present to you; it’s in the second part of this sentence which is this: “… he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases”. Let that sink in for a minute. God is in control! God is directing Obama’s actions “like a watercourse wherever he pleases”.
So if we don’t like what Obama is doing, yes we can continue to vote, and take action in ways that we can, but while we do this we must not forget the real, and the only way to make change, which is to ask God how we need to change ourselves so we can change others by our changes.
Ask God what is next in his direction of “Obama’s watercourse” so you will be ready.
(The answers to the times we live have always been in the Bible; it tells the past, present and future. This sentence came from Proverbs, chapter 21, verse 1).
