SERMON BY: PASTOR SOLOMON MBULO
TEXT: Psalms 89:14, Psalms 33:12 & Proverbs 29:2
Today will address the subject on what happens when God rules the Nation. As I share we shall look at the three scriptures that converse about God’s foundation and principles of leadership, when the nation is surrendered to God, what happens when the righteous rule and conclusion.
1. God’s foundation and principles of leadership according to Psalms 89:14
We read that the foundation of God throne is Justice, righteousness, love and mercy.
Justice – There will be fairness, impartiality, and equity in politics and running the affairs of the nation. Justice in development, justice in our courts of laws, justice in sharing the national cake. I pray that may our good Lord Grant justice in governance in our land.
Righteousness – There will be honest, truthfulness, uprightness, holiness, and fear of God by our leaders as they administer the affairs of our Land. As a result wickedness, corruption and other wicked devices and enemy of justice will be far from our land. I pray that righteousness to ruin in our land.
Love – There will be love, peace, unity in our beloved in our Nation. Love in politics, in our families, in our nation. Politics of hatred, violence, tribalism will be far from our land. I pray that the love of God shall be evident and care for each other as Zambians.
Mercy – There will be mercy, kindness, compassion, concern for each other. This entails that hatred, injustice, luck of care for each other will be far from our Nation.
2. God according to Psalms 33:12.
When the Nation is consecrated to God , set apart for God, surrendered to God, it is blessed, people enjoy the national blessings. Especially that Zambia has been declared a Christian Nation. I pray that all of us shall enjoy the blessings and cake of Zambia not a selected few.
3. What happens when the righteous rule according to Proverbs 29:2?
When the righteous are in authority people rejoice, celebrate and are happy. They don’t complain against its government and leadership.
The responsibility depends on the citizen to put righteous people in high offices when voting, this call for good character, don’t vote people on basis of the party, tribe, colour but on the Godly character. I pray that God grant Zambian citizens wisdom to vote for righteous people in leadership and bless us with Godly leaders so that all Zambians can rejoice not mourn.
As we conclude can we say Zambia is ruled by Godly principles of; Justice, Righteousness, Mercy and love? Has Zambia been surrendered to God really?, Is God Lord over Zambia? Are the righteous in authority and are people rejoicing or mourning? Let us pray for the healing of our Nation and our leaders. Blessed is the Nation that is ruled by God. God bless you.
