“May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:17
Tomorrow our country will welcome a new leader. Some are excited and some are not, but he is coming into office none the less. Some will rejoice and some will we be afraid. Will we point fingers, blame and continue to divide our country or will we pray? Will we stand up for what the Bible says or will we join in the noise of the world?
There is plenty of work that needs to be done and pointing fingers, breaking into a government building and stirring up with words has not accomplished one thing in my opinion. Instead, may we unite in praying for the Lord’s favor? May we join together and ask for Him to establish work for each of us that is for the good of others. Perhaps you have a family member you could help in some way. Maybe a neighbor needs help on a home repair or a mom could use help teaching her children a skill you happen to know well. How much could we repair or build with our hands in the days ahead? It is past time to put up our political signs and give our hands to Kingdom work. It is time to work.
