The king shall joy in thy strength, O Lord; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.7 For the king trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.13 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
This psalm is about King David. Since the election is passed, let's talk about what it takes for a leader to serve God. What qualifications and requirements should they do or have to bring a nation back to God. However this is not about our government or election please do not include real politicans names in the post. I only want you think a person in charge should be like and do to bring back our country to God. Again, no real life government names!! Any post that talk about real government people will be deleted. I put that warning on here, because when politics are involve alot of people start bashing.

The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.6 Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.9 Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.
The Lord does hear us and he will save us. We must always be ready to receive what the Lord has planned for us. Because we aren't in his will doing his commandments, the blessings wont' come our way. When we ask of God we received one of three answers; Yes, No, and Wait. Yes, makes us happy oh how we love God. No, we get angry at God sometimes. Wait, is the hardest, we are impatient and sometimes we doubt before it's even time. To wait on the Lord, you have got to trust him. I don't think (in my personal opinion) that faith and trust are the same thing. I think they are have close meanings but they aren't exact same thing. I think trust is harder to have then faith. For today's blog, all I want, is your insights about trust. Blog whatever you want to about trusting God.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
This is a sweet prayer, starting out as a testimony to God. Have you ever heard of God's voice or seen his face in a vision? He is everywhere for he created everything. Tell of times when you heard or saw God. I know the bible, it saids no one has seen the Father. I don't mean it literally. Here are some examples of seeing God. Heard God's voice when you prayed, some saw Jesus face in clouds. Once on the news, an orange had the imprint of Jesus on a cross. The vines that grow on power line polls, look like Jesus on the cross etc, even include stories of angels if you want.
