“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
(Ephesians 2:10; NLT)
Unhinged. Unfit to Serve. Impeachment.
No doubt you have heard these same words connected with our President, Donald J. Trump. The constant stirring of animosity has spilled into, or so it seems, every form of public life. Polarizing politicization is whipped up to drive ratings in what appears to be an effort to neuter the impact of this President.
Yet, we know the scriptures: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” God created Donald Trump, just like he created any previous and future President, and God created that person to do “goods works.”
What is interesting in this passage, is that God created these good works “in advance.” This phrase indicates that the list of President Trump’s heavenly accomplishments existed before he took office. He has accomplished much, he will tell you that, but is there more? Could some of the items on the list only be unlocked through the prayers of the Church?
Now, it is left to the mysterious combination of President Trump’s effort, our prayers, and the sovereign will of God to play out. Your assignment is simple: pray.
Points for Prayer:
- Pray every “good work” our President was created to accomplish would be accomplished.
- Pray God would strengthen him to focus on the task and not the criticisms.
- Pray God would quiet the civil acrimony.
