2 Samuel 23:1-4 (NKJV) Now these are the last words of David. Thus says David the son of Jesse; Thus says the man raised up on high, The anointed of the God of Jacob, And the sweet psalmist of Israel: “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue. The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ‘He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, A morning without clouds, Like the tender grass springing out of the earth, By clear shining after rain.’

Like David, my friend, never be ashamed of your roots, your beginnings, your family no matter your position in life. For it is God you place us in the positions that He wants us to be for His purpose. He is a gracious God and a loving God. He is a wonderful God to you and to me. David was not only ruler over Israel, but he was also the “sweet psalmist of Israel.” He worshiped God in songs. As we still do today. Many good songs excite the hearts of believers into worship of the one and only true and living God. These are the songs that are inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, just as how the Holy Spirit inspired holy men to write the Word of God. And this is how men and women in leadership positions in the work place, in local governments, in federal government, in Congress, in the Senate, and the White House ought to govern. They ought to govern justly “in the fear of God.” For this is a strong indicator of whether or not a nation is a Christian nation. We need men and women who will govern in the fear of God. We need to elect God fearing men and women into office. But no matter what, one day our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will rule hear on earth. “And He shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, A morning without clouds, Like the tender grass springing out of the earth, By clear shining after rain.” No matter how our elected officials may let us down, we can take comfort in the fact that Christ is returning to judge “the sons of rebellion” and He will set up His Kingdom here on earth. And He will rule justly according to His Father’s will.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
