Psalm 89:14 (NIV):
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you.
Today is Election Day. Many have expressed their thoughts and opinions. Here are my few thoughts:
- Pray for revival for our country. In the surrounding counties alone, 85% of people are unchurched.
- Pray for our leaders. Pray that our next president will pray as Solomon prayed:
1 Kings 3:7-9 (NLT):
7 “Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around. 8 And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people, a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! 9 Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?”
- I’ve heard it said something to the effect that, “If you are a Christian, you should vote for so and so.” I’ve learned that one should neither judge Christians for their vote, nor judge if someone is a Christian by their choice of candidate.
- To me, for this election, party platforms are more important than the candidates.
- Life matters.
- The appointment of Supreme Court justices is an important decision.
- Be an informed voter.
- Regardless of the outcome, God is still in control! Colossians 1:17 (ESV) states:
17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
- God’s throne is eternal, and in eternity He will rule justly and be worshiped as He is worthy!
Psalm 45:6 (NIV):
Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
Revelation 15:3-4 (NLT):
3 And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
“Great and marvelous are your works,
O Lord God, the Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
O King of the nations.
4 Who will not fear you, Lord,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”
- Happy voting everyone!
