God IS Government!

If you don’t start separating politics from government, you will begin to grow cynical of something that God is. He is government. He is Lord. He is King. He is Judge. He is Lawgiver. He IS Government! Government is one of the ways God accesses Earth. God doesn’t go around us and do things in our households. He delegated that governmental authority to us and we can do anything we want there. We can honor His authority or we can dishonor His authority. We can dishonor it and be cursed or we can honor His authority and His ways and we can reap blessing. He is going to leave it up to us! His way of accessing each household is through the delegated authority He gave to us.

“This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” (Hebrews 8:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Ask God to shift your mindset from politics to government. Tell Him to write His laws on your mind and on your heart. According to Hebrews 8:10, He can do this for you.

  2. Read the paragraph above. Think about how God works in your home and apply that principle to governing in the earth realm. It is the same.

  3. Declare that this nation is moving forward in honoring God in our government and that will increase. Declare that our nation is choosing blessing, as a result.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I believe You are government. Now, help me separate politics from You and government. Political partisanship and divisiveness is the opposite of Your nature. I do not want to grow disheartened because of what I see happening in the political arena. Our laws are often written in opposition to Yours. Write Your laws on my mind and on my heart. As I ponder how You work through the authority in my home, show me how that equates to governing in other areas, so that I may intercede with greater understanding and authority. I know I am living in a time where Your government is increasing in America. I thank You that our nation is going to increase in the manifestation of blessings, as a result. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the revelation of God as Government will increase, and His blessings to the United States, as well.
