Have you ever been in a dysfunctional meeting?

A meeting that seemed unproductive?

A meeting with several opinions, suggestions, but no viable solutions?

A meeting where tempers flared, and enemies and alliances were made?

A meeting where big egos were begging to be fed?

A meeting where everyone wanted their way?

A meeting where people behaved immaturely?

A meeting where no one would admit the wrong decision was made or the organization is on the wrong path?

All of these meetings are held by people just like you and me. Imperfect people. People with faults. People with egos. People who make mistakes…sometimes big mistakes.


Usually every major decision that affects our lives comes out of a meeting.


Please pray that God leads our national leaders and local leaders.

1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NKJV)

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

Don’t have blind faith that their experience, credentials and qualifications will make things all right.

The only differences in the meetings that you’ve attended and the high level meetings that determine the direction of…

Our economy…

Our national security…

Our future…

are the job titles, personalities and influence. They’re all still just people.

Pray for our leaders and that God blesses their meetings. Pray for peace, cooperation, collaboration and most of all agreement with and submission to the will of God.

Just as the bible says, don’t put your trust in them…put it in God.

 

Psalm 118:8-9 (NKJV)

8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. 9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
