Today Reminder - 06 December 2011

My prayer for you for today is that you will follow the Lord’s guidance with the authorities in your life. In Jesus Name.

Acts 23:5
“I'm sorry, brothers. I didn't realize he was the high priest," Paul replied, "for the Scriptures say, 'You must not speak evil of any of your rulers.'”

You must not speak evil of your rulers, goodness, I guess we are all from time to time in a position where we disagree and rebel against our rulers or leaders. I believe it is partially our own selfishness that makes us unhappy. In the end our leaders are only people like you and me and we make mistakes, so they will make mistakes. In most cases it is our direct leadership that we criticize so easily, your manager or your directors or maybe your MD or CEO. We are quick to scrutinize them and point out their imperfections when we are in most cases blind to see our own. You are not in your workplace or suburb or even circle of friends by accident, you are there because you are placed there for a purpose. Let’s follow the scriptures and not speak evil of our leaders but instead honour and help them in their duties to lead. Take time today and bring your leaders to God in prayer and ask Him to change their hearts. My thoughts and prayer will be with you today as we humble ourselves.

Cool weather over South Africa, looking forward to a great day.

Have an awesome day, friend of Jesus.
