TOPIC: Interceding for a Nation

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 18:1-10

The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying,

“Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will announce My words to you.”

Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel.

But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make.

Then the word of the LORD came to me saying,

“Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does? ” declares the LORD. “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.

“At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it;

if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it.

“Or at another moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to build up or to plant it;

if it does evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it.

The Lord is sovereign over all things, and He’s the one who establishes nations and uproots them. In His eyes, they are as influential as “a drop from a bucket” or “a speck of dust on the scales” (Isaiah 40:15). Have you ever thought of your country like this? From our perspective as individual citizens, nations wield great power and authority, and it seems as if one person would be unable to bring about any change.

But Christians can impact a nation with their prayers. In fact, the way we can play a part in reversing the downward trajectory of a nation is by interceding for those in authority. Paul urges the church to pray “for kings and all who are in authority, [in order to] lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” He goes on to say that God approves of this approach, as He “desires all people to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:2-4).

In Touch Daily Devotions 4 July 2022 By Charles Stanley

The Lord has the power to turn a nation back to Himself, and amazingly, He often uses the prayers of His people to accomplish His will. As James 5:16 tells us, the prayers of a righteous person can accomplish much. Are you faithfully appealing to God on behalf of your country’s leaders?

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 120-131

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: As we faithfully pray for our nation, God releases His power to effect change.
