May the king's rule be refreshing like spring rain on freshly cut grass, like the showers that water the earth. May all the godly flourish during his reign. May there be abundant prosperity until the moon is no more. May he reign from sea to sea, and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth. Desert nomads will bow before him; his enemies will fall before him in the dust. The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts. All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him. Psalm 72: 6-11 NLT
What would a refreshing rule look like?
For me it would be a ruler who could really work with different people who had different agendas in order that the good of the people of the country was upheld no matter what. Instead of everyone trying to carry the party agenda or the lobbyists' goals, it would be great if everyone worked together for the benefit of all, not just a few groups or individuals.
A refreshing reign would create an atmosphere where the godly flourished and everyone had more than enough. Everyone outside of the country would be in awe so much so that gifts would be brought to the ruler just because of their amazing reign.
Sound impossible? Well, since nothing is impossible with God, I think we should at least be praying for this!
God, may our country be ruled in a refreshing way. In Jesus' name. Amen.
