“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." Romans 12:4-5
I saw this verse this morning, and I thought it so appropriate for a Warfare Wednesday post. It's good to be reminded that all those who have accepted Jesus as their savior are part of one body. We are all related in one way or another, and we should work together for the benefit of the body, and of our body's creator. This week, I happen to think that we should work together for the common purpose of blessing our President.
President Obama and his family are on vacation right now, and I'm sure it's a much needed vacation. And as I read that they were on vacation, I just couldn't help but smile. I imagine his daughters don't get much daddy time, and here they have a whole week to spend with him. This week, for a short while, maybe they get a little break from the zoo that being the first family puts them in, and I just pray with all my heart that God blesses their time together immensely. May they treasure their family moments, and may God just make them much more spectacular this week.
"Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you." Psalm 116:7
And may God bless them with that all-elusive rest. May they feel rested and rejuvenated, and may the family feel at peace while they are away together. And may God make Himself real to the first family this week, may they know that they know that God is very real and present in their lives, and may they hear His Voice and see His touch in all that they do. May the Joy of the Lord overtake them and fill them with great joy and happiness, and sweeten their time together even more.
Finally, I pray Isaiah 11:2 into President Obama, God give him the wisdom he needs to turn this country's eyes back towards Godly desires and Godly things.
"The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD" Isaiah 11:2
