“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” Proverbs 29:2 Have you ever considered how this scripture can be broken down in every aspect of leadership from the White House, the work place, the pulpits and to our own homes? There is a big difference between good people and Godly people as there is a difference as well in righteousness, self righteousness and unrighteousness. What many people fail to understand due to their lives being away from God is the negative affects within our homes when we have a lack of relationship with the Lord.
There is liberty, freedom and security under Godly leadership due to the understanding and trust within God’s Word. On the other hand you will find that ungodly leadership often reveals itself under pressure through their actions often caused by their own fears. Under ungodly leadership the people within any structure often become oppressed or lets say in spiritual bondage robbing the joy and quenching the life within the home.
There is nothing worse than being in a place without freedom and equal rights and with Godly leadership in place this allows the people to rejoice. If you were to look at your home today, what would you see in the people around you? Would you find them being treated fairly and encouraged or would you find them unhappy due to simply not being able to offer what they have to give? There comes a point in our homes that these chains must be broken that are holding us down due to simply not speaking the Truth in love and in boldness. It is my prayer that every soul within a leadership position from our homes to the White House places their trust in God without leaning upon their own understanding….
Enjoy this song titled Let Freedom Ring by the Gaithers and pray for Godly men and women to stand up to serve others rather than themselves…
