New Leadership

So we have a new Prime Minister...
Would it be inaccurate to say that Kevin Rudd is a sensitive new age guy? My perception is that he prides himself of listening to the needs, hopes and dreams of his people and then seeks to bring about change in those areas. I believe that the leaders of Israel during the reign of Kings Josiah, Jehoiakim and Zedekiah were the same. The problem was that what the people wanted was unrighteousness. The greater problem was the leadership that allowed it to happen, and the consequence was exile.
Jeremiah 10:21 says that the shepherds, (pastors, leaders, rulers - civil and religious) were 'senseless'. Not necessarily senseless to their people - but senseless to the voice of God.

'The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.' (Jeremiah 10:21)

verse 23 says this;
'I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.

Today I pray for our 'New Leadership', I pray that Kevin Rudd would become a, sensitive new age guy...sensitive not just to the people of this nation, but sensitive to the sovereign God who reigns over us, and who seeks from among us righteousness.
