How “the Facts” are Making Us Tools of the Enemy! | God Intersections

God showed up at one of my coaching sessions last week.   Toward the end of our time this particular individual started reciting a series of wrongs our government in general and our president in particular were perpetrating on we the American people.  The list of “wrongs” was extensive (provided by a popular conservative website) and while I have not checked each of them against snopes.com and other sites I suspect they were all grounded in fact.

When I reminded this person that we are commanded to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-2) he was appalled at the thought and said so vocally.  Something about “how could I ask him to do such a thing”.  As we talked the Holy Spirit showed up and showed us some important stuff.  Namely that the facts (NOT Truths) of our current difficult situation are being used by the enemy to drive wedges between Christians and between Christians and the world.  And these wedges are creating strife and discord that are actually fueling Satan’s purposes.

Do we truly believe “Love never fails” (I Corinthian 13:8)?  If we do, then why are we getting so caught up in complaining, attacking and bad mouthing our government?   Don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with much of what is coming out of Washington DC BUT I do believe that my God is more than enough and that by “doing” His word (praying for the government) and loving my fellow man as we are commanded (John 13:34-35) that we provide the best opportunity for God to use us to impact those around us and through that change our world.

So let’s quit trash talking our government, pray for them and walk as the world changers God has made us to be!
