Mike Pompeo, secretary of state and former Kansas congressman, has a strategic approach to dealing with the world’s problems.
In an interview with Pastor Greg Laurie of the California megachurch Harvest Christian Fellowship, Mike Pompeo said he reads two books each morning — the Bible and the day’s intelligence report about threats to Americans at home and around the world.
“I manage to synthesize them, knowing that the Lord gives me the capacity to work, to be diligent,” Pompeo said, according to “The Christian Post.” “I hope he’ll give me the wisdom and the perseverance to meet these challenges head-on in a way that protects the American people.”
Pompeo said he goes back to that most important book every day “and remind myself that the Lord is looking out over this world … The Lord is watching us.”

In his sermon on Sunday, Pastor Laurie addressed the question: “Is coronavirus a sign of the end times?” He quoted a recent national poll: “A stunning 43 percent of poll respondents said they believe the coronavirus and resulting economic meltdown is a wake-up call for us to turn back to faith in God.”

Over the last 40 years, Laurie said , COVID-19 is the sixth infectious plague unleashed on the planet, he said. “As we can see these things beginning to happen,” Laurie said, “we have two options: You can freak out or you can look up.”
He quoted C.S. Lewis as once saying, “A continual looking forward to the eternal world is not a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do.”
