Fear-of-God. Post-election day thoughts 19 May 2019

Lord, I have heard of your fame;
I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord.
Renew them in our day,
in our time make them known;
in wrath remember mercy.
Habakkuk 3:1 NIV

How do you do it God? Surely you are a God of miracles. You answered the prayers of your people above and beyond our understanding.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counsellor?”
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 11:33-36 NIV

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying:

‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honour and glory and praise!’

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:

‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honour and glory and power,
for ever and ever!’

The four living creatures said, ‘Amen’, and the elders fell down and worshipped. Rev 5:11-14

Lord God, we thank You and praise You for answering our un-spoken (and un-thought of) prayers in putting Scott Morrison in as leader of the Liberals and PM and now elected in his own right to be PM for the next three years. Lord, we pray that might be three times three.

We pray for Your protection of him spiritually, mentally and physically and for his family.

We ask that you lead him with the Mind of Christ within him and with Your Holy Spirit continually present, guiding, inspiring, overruling, protecting. May he always be humble before You.

Lord, and in Your mercy, may You also teach the members of Parliament working with him to fear You, and in Your great mercy other members of our government as well. In Your most glorious and powerful Name and for Your glory. Amen.

The Fear-of-God
builds up
and makes a world
safe for your children.

Proverbs 14:26 The Message
