God Is Shifting The Government Sector

by Chauncey Hutter, Jr - February 2nd, 2010. Filed under: Marketplace.

There is something bigger going on. The Lord is working behind the scenes and right out in the open to bring His Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. Men and women working in various marketplace sectors are “standing” in the midst of a lost world and proclaiming the truth of Jesus Christ.

One marketplace sector showing signs of taking a dramatic turn to God is the government sector in the state of Virginia. Let me share one recent example of the Holy Spirit moving at an event and marketplace believers seeing and experiencing Kingdom results.

Last month I attended the annual Governors’ Prayer Breakfast in Richmond, VA. Each year about 1,200 government employees, political leaders and related marketplace officials gather in mid January before the state lawmakers go into session. Usually, there are political speeches, awards given and various leaders recognized for their work in the Commonwealth. To be honest, there (normally) is only token prayer bookending the beginning and end of this “prayer breakfast” event.

But guess what happened this year? God broke in and various leaders stood up from the platform and PRAYED! (And I mean Presence-Of-God prayers. It was obvious the people doing the praying had a deep prayer history in God.) A General prayed for the military. A Judge led the room in prayer for justice issues. A Delegate blessed the legislators. The Mayor cried out for the poor and needy, etc.

The point is a powerful PUBLIC asking of God for mercy, guidance, wisdom and a spiritual covering was prayed in the major areas of our state for almost the whole meeting! (Remember, this was an official government event.) And to top it all off the guest speaker who addressed this large gathering was Art Monk. (If you don’t know, he is a Hall of Fame wide receiver from the Washington Redskins who played football in the 80’s.) So what was so unique about Art Monk’s speech?

Well, basically his whole presentation to this large governmental gathering was how God completely changed his life and the only way to receive real joy and fulfillment in life was to surrender your heart to Jesus Christ and allow Him to lead you in all that you do. (Wow! I felt like I was in church, not a stuffy political meeting.)

So what was going on? Why was this happening now? Well, I don’t know for sure, but remember, Virginia just elected a God fearing, Christian (supposedly a true believer) Governor … Bob McDonnell. (At this meeting he was Governor Elect. Now he is the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.) Did you see Gov. McDonnell give the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech the other night? In my view, this was no accident.

There is something bigger going on ….

Please continue to pray for your government officials and the marketplace sector the Lord has placed you in this hour. I believe we are about to see some “God Results” where light breaks back the darkness in a powerful way!

More later – God Bless,

    May it be so in ever-increasing measure! May the Lord turn the hearts of the princes and the people, the priests and the prophets, back to Himself!

    Thank you for sharing, brother; it is encouraging to hear, and gives me hope that my time in the Army, spiritually dismal and discouraging as it has been thus far, is not at all in vain but (on the contrary) an essential part of my growth and calling in Him!
