LET’S BUILD AND DEVELOP OUR NATION!

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace (Jeremiah 29:7).

God has made you a citizen or a resident of the nation you are presently residing. It is not by chance or by accident that you are there, but it is by divine arrangement. In the opening text, God told the children of Israel, wherever I caused you to be carried away to as captives, you should endeavor to pray for the nation and seek for the peace of that nation because in its peace, you will also have peace. Every Christian is supposed to be a nation builder.

Take for instance, if there is no peace in Nigeria as a nation, everyone will be affected whether citizen or a foreigner. Therefore, it is our duty as Christians to pray for the peace of our dear nation. Also, we are expected to work collectively in building and developing our nation. We should not think only of what the nation can give to us; but think of what service you can render to the nation. A Christian is a peacemaker because he works to enthrone peace wherever he finds himself (Matthew 5:9).

In fact, if every Christian should think of what service he could render to the nation, the nation will be well built and developed. That is why we need to change our concept and orientation by coming together in unity to build and develop our dear nation. When we put our ideas together in oneness, the nation will surely become great. Remember, we have no other nation we can call ours. Therefore, it is duty of every Christian to pray for his nation and participate in its building by ensuring there is peace and tranquility.

Daily Tip: Pray and seek for the peace of your nation and work towards her growth and development. Shalom!

Golden Text: 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 (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
