Leaders of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians are faced with setting a new election date after the Tribal Council rejected the results of a June 30 runoff. That election pitted incumbent Chief Phyliss J. Anderson against former Chief Beasley Denson.
Although the Choctaw Indian Reservation is not in the Mississippi Delta, part of their original land is.
Psalm 19:4b-6 NIV
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.
We thank You, Father, that the heavens tell of Your glory. Their expanse declares the work of Your hands. Their line has gone out through all the earth.
The lines of latitude and longitude tell of Your glory in the state of Mississippi. The circuits and orbits of all the heavenly bodies manifest Your supremacy. It is beyond our understanding. Holy is Your name.
Jesus will march out like a champion, like a warrior He will stir up His zeal. With a shout, Jesus will raise the battle cry and will triumph over His enemies. He will ride out along the lines of latitude in the state of Mississippi. Ride forth through the Choctaw Indian Reservations and through the ancient ceremonial centers! Ride forth through Lake George!
Our beloved comes, leaping across the mountains and bounding over the hills.
Amplify the greatness of God, invisible lines! Amplify his power and dominion in every dimension across the state of Mississippi! Amplify the holiness of His name. Amplify! Amplify! Amplify!
Isaiah 42:13, Song of songs 2:8, Psalm 19:1,4a
