Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Matthew 5:9

Congratulations are in order for our President and his award from the Noble Prize committee. Certainly there are a number of challenges available to President Obama but the root to solving them is founded in peace.
I believe that a heart that is genuine towards his ambitious goals concerning peace will prevail in a world in need of it. I do not believe in coincidences and that during this time and season President Barack Obama is the right leader to usher in an attitude of peace through this nation and the world. Many of the challenges present in this nation and world stem from an attitude of indifference and ignorance when confronting the diverse nature of cultures. There is a piece in scripture that the apostle Paul touches on concerning the choice and placement of leaders as it relates to the agenda of the Kingdom of God. He writes;

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Romans 13:1-3

In a world in need of an attitude adjustment President Obama is that breath of fresh air and the vessel willing to work towards the good for mankind and not for evil. There are times when his decisions and choices are not perfect, none of us are, but to his credit his humility and perseverance speaks of a heart that seeking to please God and his fellow man. Applaud him for his efforts and express gratitude for his service so far to this nation and world.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace , longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Galations 5:22
