WHY WE NEED TO GET IT RIGHT NOV. 8th
We all give reasons why America needs to vote a certain way in the up-coming election. There are many people running for different elections. Most focus on the executive office. Some of us worry about the SCOTUS appointments. Others are interested in women’s rights. There’s a long list…
King Solomon, with wisdom from God, told the Israelites why they needed to do the right thing in his prayer of dedication of the Temple and there was no list.
God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He wants us to obey Him for the same reason He wanted the Israelites to obey:
THAT ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH MAY KNOW THAT THE LORD IS GOD, AND THAT NONE ELSE IS. 1 KINGS 8:60
HOW WILL WHAT WE DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Obeying God always makes a positive difference. We need to do this not because God is political or because the right president will save us. We need to do it because God blesses a nation whose God is the LORD and those who obey and serve Him. When God blesses, others notice and God is glorified.
Perhaps many will say that America is not a Christian nation and voting according to God’s will, has no effect on the rest of the world.
It is precisely for that reason, we need to return to finding God’s will for our country and to obeying in all things. We need to not only believe the gospel, but live as God’s people.
LORD, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE US DO?
IF MY PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY, AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND. 2 CHRONICLES 7:14
Psalm 37 is written for times such as these.
Reading this entire chapter is important.
TRUST IN THE LORD, AND DO GOOD…PSALM 37:3
We can only obey if we know God’s will. Knowing and obeying allows one to:
CEASE FROM ANGER, AND FORSAKE WRATH; DO NOT FRET-IT ONLY CAUSES HARM. PSALM 37:8
May America return to serving the only true God!
