Mar 19, 2009 I Lazaroo.


“Why were you not afraid to lift your hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?”
(2 Samuel 1:14)

LORD, You know I live in a world that is largely ignorant of the fact that You anoint leaders of nations,  along with prophets, apostles – even all Christians – to do Your holy work.

I confess I seldom think about Your repeated, strong warnings to treat such people with special respect, even when they themselves are a disgrace to the office they hold.

Please, Holy Spirit:  Remind me of this truth!  

I don’t want to force You to punish me because of my careless words or actions.

Jesus, rise up within me in holy fear, the next time I start to lift my hand or my mouth …

…against someone You have anointed.

    This is a timely one. I think we Christians seem to get caught up in the political winds as we try to advance our own agendas rather than to allow God to move in a way that He deems fit.

    Lord, help us not to judge and condemn but add our prayers to those who live by Your Word.

  2. John Tevault Says:

    Yes Lord please? Give me the self control to bit my toung and not be so quick to judge! But to love my fellow man as God wants me too.

  3. Teresa Says:

    Excellent reminder as my frustrations mount over the actions & “changes” of our leaders!

  4. Steve Says:

    This has application to our current political scene? Why…I think you may be right! I just hadn’t noticed. 🙂

  5. Bonnie Says:

    Good food for thought, given the current political scene.
