You do not have to be “deep” before you realize that God has an interest in people. The best way to take care of people is to empower the best of them to lead the rest of them. This is why God’s number one business on the earth is the government. You would observe upon reading the Bible, that one of its most important themes is righteous leadership and governance. A watchman must think about how to create an empowering atmosphere that allows people to grow, prosper and create economic opportunities under visionary leadership and strong governance.
Apostle Paul wrote, “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way” (1 Timothy 2:1-2 ESV). You are not going to have the peace and quiet you need to pursue your mission under bad leadership and governance. For example, Nigerians are not “japa-ing” to Canada because they are looking for God or spiritual growth. They are relocating in droves because they seek a quiet and peaceful life that is only made possible by good governance.
There is no real progress without changes at the governance level. Brilliant and resilient individuals can make things happen for themselves, and a handful of others. However, we cannot completely sidestep authorities and pretend it doesn’t matter. The church in Nigeria ignored governance issues, content to stay within their church walls. In the passing of time, we have seen how that has turned out to be a terrible mistake. You must understand that spiritual power and anointing cannot do for you what strong governance should do. For an effective watch over your world, take an interest in the quality of leaders in your world. You also want to pray, intercede and work towards strong governance.
