"It is a blessing and privilege to be able to join brothers and sisters across the nation to pray for our President and First Lady as well as those who lead our blessed country. Thank you Presidential Prayer team leaders --praise God, praise Jesus and praise the Holy Spirit. Amen." - Shirley V.
“I’ve got this!” Those can either be words of comfort or they can cause you great anxiety. If the person saying it is one to be trusted and capable of handling the situation, you can be relieved. But if the person saying it is arrogant, pushy, and irresponsible, you will have more problems.
What is your attitude as you live from day to day? The life of Christ is your example. Right after Matthew tells of Jesus’ baptism, he relates that Jesus “was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted” (Matthew 4:1). It is likely the Savior spent the majority of His 40 days there in prayer so He would not submit to the temptations Satan thrust upon Him. In Jesus’ last hours when the mob assembled, Judas knew where to look for the Master. Luke states that it was Christ’s custom to go to the Mount of Olives (Luke 22:39) - most likely His preferred place of prayer. Jesus retreated to a quiet place where He knew He could call upon His Father. In His greatest time of need and suffering, the Messiah knew who was capable of relieving His pain.
Commentator Matthew Henry states, “If God proportion the shoulders to the burden, we shall have no reason to complain, whatever he is pleased to lay upon us.” In the day of trouble, the Lord is able! His strength is sufficient. Jesus was willing to obey His Father no matter the cost. How about you?
Lay your day before the Lord and be guided by Him. Then commend this country and its leaders to God for guidance. He’s got this!
