Righteousness Exalts a Nation
By Cathy Irvin
- Where is righteousness in the land? Has it fallen by
the wayside in our judicial system? Surely not! There are those
among our judiciary who heed God’s rule and desires for
this great nation. But, based on some of the liberties that have
been taken in moral and spiritual matters, it would seem that
this is not the case.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to
any people (Proverbs 14:34, Holman Christian Standard Bible
God hears us when we pray, when we seek His will on earth as
it is in heaven. Heaven clearly calls for righteousness in the
land. Whenever there is a conflict of what man wants and what
God’s intention is, we must call upon God to change the
situation. There must be a shift in the courts. We must know that
the heavenly court is in session and that nothing takes God by
surprise. He sees all and knows all.
We have seen God’s divine intervention time after time.
The timing of the Lord is perfect, so we must not let down our
guard; we are the watchmen on the wall. A group of intercessors
across the land is crying out for this very thing: a court that
listens to God’s will for this nation.
Every Christian needs to become a prayer warrior for this cause
at this time. We would never deliberately allow the enemy to come
in and take over our nation, so we must fight; we know that we
are on the battlefield of life and that we are soldiers in God’s
army. We are also like lawyers pleading the case before the Great
Judge in heaven, saying, “Hear our cry, O Lord. Let there
be righteousness in the judicial system.”
God can turn the hearts of the Kings, so may the Supreme Court
judges’ hearts be turned toward heaven to hear His plans.
He judges the world with righteousness; He executes judgment
on the peoples with fairness (Psalm 9:8, HCSB).
