THEME: PROFIT IN GOD’S KINGDOM
“Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death.”
-God spoke through prophet Ezekiel to condemn sin in Jerusalem as He is doing in the world today. Those in authority took bribes and shed innocent blood. They increased taxes and made profit from extortions to enrich themselves. God says that He shall deal with the perpetrators of these things (Ezekiel 22:12-14). It is ironic how Africa is classified as the poorest continent; yet the richest. Some leaders especially in Africa plunder resources and hide them in tax havens. Massive wealth in form of raw mineral resources are transported to European countries and other parts of the world. If today this plunder came to a halt, most world economies would instantly collapse. A majority of the African leaders have welcomed Neo-colonialism and nations like China thrive due to big contracts. Other nations have gone into huge debts where most of the money goes into people’s pockets. Government institutions including monopolies have been plundered by political leaders. As their citizens praise the big thieves, the small thieves get arrested and rot in jail. This cannot be seen or heard in more developed and civilized nations. Graduates waste many years looking for jobs while others nations experience high employment levels. Leaders are keen to extend their terms and do not care about the interests of its citizens. The biggest challenge we face in Africa is not global warming but poor leaders. Our leaders are corrupt and are destroying our nation and other African nations. Probably if we had God fearing leaders, we would not be concerned about economic recovery, unemployment and other such issues. The Lord says that He will punish those who are engaged in such evils, for the treasures of the wicked profit nothing but righteousness delivers from death. Such evils do not profit anyone anything in God’s kingdom. May the Lord expose these leaders, change their hearts and give us God fearing leaders who are ready to serve the people like king Solomon. We are called to pray for our nation and continent, for everything is possible with God.
Abba Father You are great and You are greatly to be praised. Thank You for loving us and taking good care of us. Thank you for this far that You have brought us and the far that You are taking us. Thank You for sustaining us and protecting us despite the problem of poor leadership that we face in Africa. Thank You for Your great love upon us and our nation and all the nations of the world. Our nation belongs to You, do a new thing in our land; Kenya. Africa belongs to You expose every corrupt leader and hidden resource that belongs to Your people. Your arm is not too short to save, nor Your ear too dull to hear Jesus, save Your people. Nothing is impossible with You our Lord and our God. Give us wise and God fearing leaders we humbly ask You. Leaders who will be led by You Holy Spirit. Leaders who will harken to Your voice and follow You. Change the way things are being done in our continent of Africa and set us free from corrupt and selfish leaders. Set us free merciful Savior. Bless our land and our continent of Africa dear Savior. Save us dear Master and grant each one the gift of salvation. Set us free dear Jesus and bless the work of our hands. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from all evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
