Scripture: Exodus 6:7
Verse 7 declares God’s eternal purpose for judgment. It says, “I will take you as My people and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.” God had a national purpose for Israel, a purpose far different than toiling under the burden of the Egyptian government. But to bring that to pass, He had to perform judgments on Egypt on a massive scale. His judgments declared the personal love God had for His people in bringing them out from under bondage and showed both the Israelites and the Egyptians that He is God. America also is under a governmental burden that is far from God’s eternal purpose for our nation. Overturning marriage and celebrating homosexuality fills our land with iniquity, and God’s judicial Hand is likely the only thing that can turn or remove the politicians and judges that are burdening our land. It is up to the church to pray judgment on those leaders in violation of Bible truth. A good place to start is to pray Job 31:23, “For disaster from the Lord terrifies me and because of His majesty I could not do these things.” A great partner verse is Isaiah 26:9 which says, “When your judgments come upon the earth the people of the world learn righteousness…” When we pray judgment, redemption is the goal. Judgment ushers in the fear of the Lord which leads some to the path of salvation. The execution of judgment in prayer is essential for the welcoming of a mighty harvest. It is simple and straightforward! Let’s stand on Scripture and use our prayer language to pray our nation into its eternal purpose!
