Country of Peace and Righteousness

by Sam

In his days, the righteous shall flourish, and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more. He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth.

Psalm 72:7-8

This chapter of Psalm starts out by saying

God, give the king your justice; your righteousness to the royal son.

Psalm 72:1

The rest of the Psalm describes the kingdom and conditions when God gives leaders justice and righteousness.

A kingdom where the good guys flourish. There is little to no crime because charity organizations take care of all the unfortunate. There is little corruption because everyone works hard and deals with each other fairly. If there is a dispute the courts deliver true justice. Where the righteous flourish and are held up as role models.

A kingdom where there is no war. A kingdom that is peacefully expanding by cultural influence instead of military might. A kingdom that has a robust economy by God’s blessings in upright business. A place where the whole world comes to learn about science, art, trade, and holiness. A place where all aspects of society receive equal attention, not just business and military.

This all comes from leaders who have God’s justice and righteousness in them. How can we reach this kind of country? By praying for our leaders. Asking God’s Holy Spirit to come upon the leaders of your town, county, state, and country is the first step toward a kingdom of peace and righteousness.

Let’s reach the peaceful and righteous country. Pray for your leaders today.
