Governing God's Way with Dorothy Burton

Governing God's Way with Dorothy Burton

A podcast connecting the timeless principles of scripture to the timely issues of our day to inspire, educate and motivate those who serve, lead and govern. King Solomon, the wisest leader to have ever lived, left us with this truth – there is nothing new under the sun and what has been, will be. What was true for him and those who served, led and governed in his day, is just as true for those who serve, lead and govern today. Timeless principles for times like these.

The greatest leaders throughout history could never afford to pay the thousands who followed them. Yet, together, they changed their world. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a great...

Satan is real. Satan hates you. And when it comes to taking out God's people -- especially those in authority, his plan is sure. His plan has worked since the beginning of time.

No leader - no matter how many degrees on the wall, endorsements behind their name, years of serv...

One of the major ways you will know God has called you to do something  will be a nagging sense of inadequacy to meet the demands of the task, let alone accomplish it. Feelings of inadequacy are often confirmation that you are right where God wants you to be to accomplish what He has purposed you to do --- but only through Him!

A change in plans beyond our control will prove to be a blessing, though at the time it seems like the end, defeat or total loss. God never loses nor do we when we trust His change in our plans. Listen and be encouraged!

Hell-raising it seems is the order of the day today. This isn't new. Hell-raisers joined in with the Hebrews in their trek across the wilderness -- and it cost them dearly. Be careful how you join in with people today who always have an ax to grind or feel the need to raise hell. It can cost you dearly.

If you wait until you have "enough" you will never have "enough." God has already provided everything you need to do the work He has given you to do. You really do have enough!

From Texas to Georgia to Arizona to DC. School boards, churches, city councils, state legislatures what is going on in American government today? With politicians and policymakers?

Why are evangelicals acting so unevangelical?

Christian nationalism is playing a major role in policymaking today. It's not just Republican v. Democrat. It is an insidious and perverted theo-political philosophy that is a cancer eating away at Chri...

The Devil is his title. Satan is his name. And he is after the control tower of our life. Our mind. If he can control our mind, he will control our life.

As the control tower dictates what happens in the cockpit and on the runway - so does our mind dictate what happens in our life, for all of our life.
