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.

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

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…

Holy Spirit > Righteousness > Peace > Joy

For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 NET Bible

Lexicon at Bible Hub:
but righteousnessδικαιοσύνη
(dikaiosunē)1343:righteousness, justicefrom dikaiosand peaceεἰρήνη
(eirēnē)1515:of uncertain derivation, perhaps from eiró (to join): lit. or fig. peace, by impl. welfareand joyχαρὰ
(chara)5479:joy, delightfrom chairó

Righteousness: I AM, right now, regardless of failings or faults, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus in the eyes of God. I stand before my Father in right standing not because of a single thing I've done except that I accepted his Son standing in my place. When he sees me, he sees his son, in whom he is well pleased.

Peace: Eirene/Shalom: Nothing Missing. Nothing Broken. Everything Whole and Complete. This is the wellness of spirit, soul, body, mind, finances. It's an all-encompassing peace. I need not have it functioning to understand it belongs to me. I have tools I don't use in my toolbox…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
