Yesterday, President Trump announced his nomination for the Supreme Court vacancy, a major announcement for the future of our nation. Though the coming days and weeks are sure to be full of political debate and posturing, it is important for all of us to remain prayerful. When we focus our energies on prayer instead of what is politically sensational or captivating each day, we have a much greater effect on our world. In Proverbs, it says, “The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.” Though we do not have a king these days, the same could be said for any of us who call upon the Lord. Through fervent and frequent prayer, our hearts are turned towards God’s will instead of our own. Thus, being prayerful is always better than being political. Today, rather than turn towards our own basic political instincts, focus your energy on being prayerful and see how much better your world becomes.
“The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.” – Proverbs 21:1 ESV
