Since the Canadian election I keep hearing people in the church saying they are “grieved, discouraged” and “disappointed” as to the outcome of the election. We need to remember God is in charge and as mentioned in the last prophetic word post – Prepare For His Dwelling In Our Midst – I believe we are in a time when God is calling us to do more than simply “pray for those in leadership” but to “pray for the peace and prosperity of the nation so we too might prosper”.
With that in mind, I wanted to share what I sensed the Lord saying over this past weekend.
A Change of Leadership
We find ourselves in a different political climate in the nation of Canada today. For the first time in 10 years, the Conservative Party is not in power. Of course before now former Prime Minister Stephen Harper took office it had been a long time since the Conservatives had been in power as the Liberal Party held the office for a number of years before then.
In the days ahead we must remember we are believers in Christ, not believers in a particular political party.
Heading up to the October 19th election there was much rhetoric as to which party we should vote for. As believers we need to pray for the righteous to rule. Again, God has not appointed a particular party. His plan is always greater than our plan and we need to remember we do not think like He does.
