PRAY for Leaders


PRAY for Leaders


Praying for our leaders, ALL our leaders. There is a temptation living inside each of us to assume we're right and MAKE others listen to us. When a leader does something we disagree with, we want to scream about it. This is MORE true for many Christians. We are, uniquely, aware of Righteousness and God's Standards. When an evil King/Leader does what is evil, we abhor it, and we reject it. However... is it possible that there is a right way and a wrong way to reject a leader and his/her decisions? We can never tolerate evil, especially in our leaders. In the USA we are given a privileged that few others enjoy, we can choose our leaders and even eject them if need be. But there must still be a right way, a right attitude and heart with which this must be done.

Proverbs 25 (New King James Version)

2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. 3 As the heavens for height and the earth for depth, So the heart of kings is unsearchable. 4 Take away the dross from silver, And it will go to the silversmith for jewelry. 5 Take away the wicked from before the king, And his throne will be established in righteousness. 6 Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king, And do not stand in the place of the great; 7 For it is better that he say to you, "Come up here," Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom your eyes have seen.


God is showing us here that it is HE who appoints leaders and HE who uses them for HIS purposes. The sooner we get that in our mind the sooner we can get on board with His plan. Does God choice for leader always get elected? No. God will not override the will of the people. However it is God who gifts men for their office and God will use any man in an office by the very nature of his office. What do I mean by that?

Consider if you will a thought. Satan has no creative power. He is powerless and has been since the beginning  The BEST Satan can do is to use his words to twist the minds of men. Satan has no authority to make anything happen. He must convince people to do as He says through lies, fear, and threats. Satan, therefore, cannot "Anoint" a leader. Satan cannot give power or ability to someone to lead that he doesn't already have. This means that anyone who leads does so because he has been gifted by GOD for that office. Satan can only twist that man or woman not empower them. Just as King Saul turned from God's anointing to become evil, and Saul of Tarsus turned from his deception to become God's anointed, leaders possess the gifts from day one. How they use them is up to them and God's leading.

Therefore, even an evil man must be subject to God's direction, and at times intervention. Why is this important. God will do two things to an evil leader. First, in compassion, God will reach out to him, and plead with him through Mercy. If he turns God will use that man for his purposes. If he does not turn, God will still use him for a time, and then reject him and replace him with another.

This brings me great hope in these uncertain times. It means that no matter how dire or evil the situation looks, those who belong to God can pray, turn to God, and He WILL intervene. It's not a matter of IF. God WILL change things for His people. He may choose his own way of doing it, it may not be what the people think it will be. They may call for Him to replace and he leads the leader to repent instead. They may call for Him to lead the leader to repent and God replaces him. How God brings about Change is HIS business. But we are to pray for the change, stand boldly on His Word for that change, and believe God will do as He says he will.

Daniel 2:21 (New King James Version)
And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding.
Romans 13:1 (New King James Version)
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.

Our job here is to pray. Pray for God's will to be made known, and then stand on that knowledge, believing God will bring it to pass.

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Job's History and Family

For the record, I have not written any of this information. I am pasting it here in one place to get back to it easier. I am doing research on Job. The Following Excerpts are the most exhaustive study I've seen of Job so far in my research and I believe this author(s) are on the right track in some of their assumptions.

Please see the links provided to find their full study.

Job's father is Issachar, whose father is Jacob/Israel (Job's grandfather), whose father is Issac (Job's Great Grandfather), whose father is Abraham (Jobs Great Great Grandfather).
Genesis 46:8-18 (King James Version)8 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt,Jacob and his sons:Reuben,Jacob'sfirstborn.9 And the sons of Reuben;Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.10 And the sons of Simeon;Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman. 11 And the sons of Levi;Gershon,Kohath, and Merari.12 And th…
