Hurricane Ian is proving how much leadership matters

by | Sep 29, 2022 | Mario Murillo Ministries, Political Leadership | 17 comments

The people of Florida feel more reassured with Ron DeSantis at the helm during a hurricane, than Americans feel with Joe Biden in any weather.

One can just imagine the disaster that would ensue if the same man who handled the evacuation of Americans from Afghanistan was handling the evacuation of Florida. Even some of Biden’s ardent supporters cringe at the thought of his overseeing operations in Florida during Hurricane Ian.

The reason I know the people of Florida feel reassured is because I left the state just before all the airports were closed. There was no panic or confusion. None.

They believe in Governor DeSantis and his team. He speaks in a confident and measured tone. He is never without a plan. At this hour, he has 40,000 workers poised to rush in and deal with the extensive damage from the storm.

At this hour, he has 40,000 workers poised to rush in and deal with the extensive damage from the storm.

Most of all, he behaves as a servant to all of the people, regardless of whether they voted for him or not.

By comparison, look at Biden. His outbursts and his lapses of memory are frightening. The latest one had his handlers scrambling to defend him: “The White House on Sept. 28 claimed that President Joe Biden was not acting unusual when he looked around during an event and asked about a deceased congresswoman.

“Biden, a Democrat, was thanking members of Congress who supported legislation aimed at tackling hunger issues, when he looked around for the late Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN). ““Jackie here? Where’s Jackie? I think she wasn’t going to be here,” said Biden, 79, America’s oldest president.

“Walorski died in a car crash earlier this year. After the sudden death, Biden issued his condolences.” –Zachary Stieber

Worse still, Biden recently declared war on half of the citizens of America, calling them ‘terrorists.’

Worse still, Biden recently declared war on half of the citizens of America, calling them ‘terrorists.’ He is actually treating millions of Americans as if they were his enemies.

Why is there no panic in Florida? Why will there be little or no looting? The answer is leadership. And the glaring contrast is not just with Washington, but any Democrat-run state.

While Californians suffer Gavin Newsome is busy trying to sell abortions in red states

Gavin Newsom is obsessed about everything, except the needs of Californians. While the people he has sworn to serve languish in an insufferable quality of life, he is busy buying billboards in other states to sell abortions—and using the words of Jesus, out of context, to support his agenda!

The leadership of DeSantis is an outgrowth of his faith and his conservative values. It works! We saw how it created jobs. We saw how keeping the state open has flattened the curve during the pandemic. Now we see the greatest reason to choose these values: It is the best way to weather storms—be they from recessions, foreign enemies, and, yes, even nature itself.

The bottom line is that we are watching a clear contrast of leadership—a contrast that is recorded in the Bible. Proverbs 29: 2 says, “When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.”

The November election is not a choice between two parties. It is a choice between good and evil. And, a chance to go from groaning to rejoicing.

Above all, we fervently pray for God’s mercy and protection on all of those who are enduring this massive and terrible storm.

    You make s good point though I’d say that Floridians are as used to hurricanes as Californians are used to earthquakes. Still, good leadership results in minimal loss of life and a plan to help once the storm is over.
    Praying for Florida.

      How often do Californians experience an earthquake?

    • gege4god

      AMEN!!!!!!!

      My son and his young family (3 boys, 8, 4 and 3 months) recently moved from California to Tampa, Florida. I was very pleased (and very prayerful) with Gov. DeSantis handling of this historic Hurricane. They did what he said, and evacuated. I’m glad

      I totally agree here I have family that were smack dab in the worst part of IAN and The power of prayer kept them safe while everything around them were devastated.

    (Proverbs 29: 2 says, “When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.” The November election is not a choice between two parties. It is a choice between good and evil. And, a chance to go from groaning to rejoicing.) That is a perfect summation of where we stand as a nation, a chance to go from groaning to rejoicing, the destruction of America or making America great again! Put God back in our schools again!

    Besides pray, what can we do to keep the Biden regime from cheating again? What do you suggest as Christians in the army ??

  8. Elyce Mouskondis

    Truth and Godly leadership always wins. I know God will bless the people of Florida because of the righteous leadership they have.
    Praying God will restore and comfort all the people in Florida.

  9. Chuck Harmon

    I think Gov. Newsome has set a precedent that a sitting elected official can quote the bible without being accused of violating the separation of Church and state.

  10. Sandra

    Good word and yes I said back in Charlotte North Carolina at a get together before covid that it was never a race issue but good versus evil! Where is peoples’ discernment or do they hear from the spirit? And yes the church needs to arise and be what we are called to be a voice declaring a saving Father and a light in the darkness. God bless Godly leaders and preachera that stand on the WORD and do mot bend to the darknest! Prayers for your ministry and all my relatives and friends in Florida! I dearly love Ron Desantis and Scott. Thank GOD for Godly leaders!!!!

  11. RAFO

    We love our Governor and his wife (who really is a #1 lady… not like Jill)!! We uphold him, his family and all his staff in prayer as he DAILY fights the communists in Washington. This country needs many more like him in city, county, state and federal office!

  12. Diana Marquez

    Thank you brother Mario as a 21 year Floridian, I seen my fair share of leaders none compare to DeSantis, the best by far! We are blessed to have him and his family as leaders. Thank you for all your prayers, see you next month in Estero!
    🙏🏻🔥🔥🔥

    Excellent Word, Pastor Mario, thank you. Many of the wicked in the media are trying to trash Governor DiSantis over his previous remarks on, “climate change”, as if his stance against the radicalization of their “climate movement” (religion) is the cause for the hurricane. In addition, many of them are lying and claiming that there are more hurricanes and greater intensity than ever in history. Both lies have been debunked by the great Joe Bastardi, and other experts.

    DiSantis is one in a million. I have no doubt God will continue to use him mightily. While California’s lead vampire goes down in history as one of the worst governors ever.
