Have you ever heard the story of Chicken Little? There are several versions but the one I know goes something like this. Chicken Little was walking along one day when an acorn fell on his head. He just knew, with all his heart, that the sky was falling so he set out to tell the king. Along the way, he met other animals and as he told them what happened they decided to join him on his quest. They happen upon a fox who invites them into his lair for protection against the falling sky. They all enter but then the fox proceeds to eat them all except for Chicken Little who was warned what the fox was doing and escaped. The moral of the story…’Don’t believe everything you hear.”
I have heard a lot of people over the last few years complain about our President and Congress. Sometimes about the fact that they can’t agree on anything and have accomplished very little. Then again, the items that have been accomplished are very unpopular with a large segment of the population. No matter if you agree or disagree with any of them—your duty as a Bible believing, follower of Jesus is to pray for them. Are we? Enough? Romans 13:1 says, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” See, God is not caught by surprise by anything that is going on in our country or our world today.
He is Sovereign and He is always in control. Does that mean we are puppets on a string…NO. God has given us free will. He has given us the ability to serve Him or serve satan. Believe me, if you say you’re not going to make a choice in this moment, you have already made a choice. But if you have chosen to be a follower of Jesus Christ—don’t believe everything you hear. Don’t get nervous when things seem to be going wrong. Don’t be nervous when it feels like the enemy is winning. Read until you get to the end of the book…God wins! He is victorious! He knows and understands that the sky is not falling even though sometimes it feels like it and sometimes it may appear that way.
We are living in the last days. God’s word states that all we are seeing must come to pass before His final appearing. We have a responsibility as His children to pray for the lost. Our hearts should be burdened for anyone who does not know Jesus as their personal Savior. Just because we may not like who is President or who is in Congress at the time does not mean we are not to pray for them. Because ultimately—they are not in control…GOD IS! He is and always will be Sovereign. He is and always will be our Creator. He is and always will be the One and Only true God.
