President Donald Trump will take part in the swearing-in ceremony for the newly confirmed Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy Dan Brouillette. Following the resignation and departure of former Secretary Rick Perry, President Trump appointed the then Under Secretary of the Department of Energy. During the confirmation hearing, Brouillette gained bipartisan support and, in early December, was voted in by an overwhelming majority.

Ahead of the ceremony, Brouillette said, "I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve the American people, President Trump and DOE's dedicated civil servants in this new role. I want to thank President Trump for placing his confidence in me to help advance America's national security, energy security and economic security through groundbreaking science, technology and innovation."

As the Lord Leads, pray with us:
  • For the president as he appoints new officials to fill vital positions in the administration.
  • For newly confirmed Secretary Dan Brouillette as he begins the new duties of his office.
  • For wisdom for the Senate as they evaluate each of the president’s nominations.

Vantage Point Devotional - A Daily Life Perspective from God's Word

The coupling together of obedience and faith is not seen in the New Testament except in the book of Romans. Paul says bringing the nations to the obedience of faith is the purpose of grace and apostleship.

Through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among the nations.
Romans 1:5
(Read below)

During this Christmas season, you often think that the single purpose of the birth of Jesus and of the Gospel itself is to save sinners. It begins there, certainly, but there is more. God’s purpose is having creation restored unto Himself. Later in Romans, Paul talks about creation groaning in its desire to be restored. So creation’s restoration does not merely include His greatest creation—humankind—but trees and forests, rivers and lakes, skies and stars, more than just people. A restored creation requires the faith that saves along with the obedience to God’s Word…when everyone submits to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. But, ultimately, whether the nations submit at this hour in time or not, Jesus is still Lord!

Pray that today, Christians in America, just like you, would consider their part in bringing about the obedience of faith, by seeking to do the will of God each and every day. As you do, this can be a real season of rejoicing.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
