Motivation to Pray for Our Governor

With Tennessee’s new governor to be sworn in this Saturday, it’s natural to wonder what he will do for us. But the real question, biblically, is what will God do through him?

In Psalm 4, King David says that people were saying to him, “Who will show us any good,” perhaps looking to him for good things even as we may be tempted to look to Mr. Lee. But David’s response to their question was, “LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.”

David knew that there was no innate good in him; he was conceived and born in sin. He knew what the New Testament affirms, that the flesh avails nothing.

Knowing this should spur us to pray for Mr. Lee and ask God to direct him toward that which is righteous and just.
