Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, and Mark Zuckerberg can all pick up their phones to announce a press conference and have a ballroom packed with reporters in less than three hours time. The scribes will hang on every word which comes out of their mouths, even if it’s verbal pablum.
How can they do this?
Americans equate wealth with wisdom and strength. Thus, the words of these people are considered important enough for the media to give them a platform to trumpet their words to us.
Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. (Ecclesiastes 9:16)
Today, I prayed:
Lord, I pray that You pour out Your wealth, riches, and honor on Your chosen servants so that their wisdom and knowledge can help to lead Your people through the upcoming dark days in America. (Based on 2 Chronicles 1:11-12)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.

Well, I guess this answers my question, Larry. We need God’s wisdom to know how to publish in a way that doesn’t market revival but sends the light. Keep shining! It’ll get out there!
Lift the Cross of Jesus,
My answers always sound easy, except for the process beforehand and that tends to be our hangups. Thus, my prayer life consists mainly of saying over and over again, “Lord, I do not know how to do this. So show me or show someone else how to do this or it won’t happen.”
Speaking of the “upcoming dark days”, Larry, I was blessed with Proverbs 24:5 this morning. May it bless you and all who agree with your prayer.
Proverbs 24:5 is certainly a blessing for me. Thanks and God bless you.
Thank you, Mr. Larry, for leading us to pray so that His servants are heard and listened to. God bless you! I prayed for us to have no gods before Him.
P.s. Sorry I have been MIA. I lost an Internet connection for awhile. My daughter and son in law came to the rescue yesterday!
Thanks. You were lost but now found again. God bless you and your daughter and son-in-law.
