I tend to hate when elections roll around. So much ugly, so much mess and mean spirited mud-slinging seem to permeate the entire process. It’s a time when people’s true colors shine through and some of those colors just aren’t very bright or vibrant at all. All too often, they are dull, dark and just ugly. This is not just the candidates, it’s friends and family as well, especially on social media.
This year, as God would have it, I have come across some wonderful wisdom. More than ever before, I’m seeing people who are utterly baffled when it comes to who they can in good conscience, vote for. For me, if a candidate doesn’t line up morally, I don’t think twice about voting for them. This year, it does not seem as cut and dry but the wisdom I heard from Lance Wallnau for those in Christ is to pray and ask God who He has ordained for this role at this time and get on board with His plan.
John 10:27 says, “My sheep hear my voice, I know them and they follow Me.”
Romans 13:1 (NASB) says, “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.”
1 Corinthians 2:10-12 says, “10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.”
So, let’s do it. Let’s partner with God this election. He is not surprised or dismayed in the least by all that’s happening. He knew things would happen this way and has provided a way for us to thrive and move forward. We have absolutely no reason to worry, fret, or fear. We have but to focus on God and listen to His voice and leading. I don’t know about you, but that’s great news to me!
