Asking the Holy Spirit to help me on what to write this morning, I just knew He would give me the right words that has the power to encourage someone, heal a broken heart, heal the sick, break someone… In fact, God’s word is life.
The question that however comes to mind is how many people in the world today wants to hear God’s word? This is the bitter truth as man thinks he is self-sufficient in himself.
The same is applicable during the time of election. The United States of America will elect her President tomorrow 8th of November 2016. There has been debates between the parties, campaigns to all parts of America, public opinions and the likes. However, the crucial question Americans must ask is who has God approved? (Other countries must ask this question too). This question will go a long way to determine the future of America.
The moment any nation neglects God in her decision making process, then you can be sure that such a nation will be prone to errors. This is exemplified in the nation of Israel when the asked for a King 1 Samuel 8:5 (NIV) “They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”” Israel as a nation took a decision that forever changed their course, they wanted a King so badly that they didn’t consult the One (God) who brought them out of the land of Egypt into the land they dwell.
Hear O America! Do not choose based on your political inclination/party you love. Rather, ask God who He wants to be there. “When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.” Proverbs 29:2 (NLT).
This is applicable to other countries of the world. The moment we neglect God in our affairs, the following are bound to happen;
1. The nation will become enslaved 1 Samuel 8:17
2. The wicked will rule and lead people astray.
3. Such nation will be deprived of their inheritance 1 Samuel 8:15
4. When you call upon God, He will not answer because you have not listened to His word 1 Samuel 8:18
5. Laws that will endanger the nation will be passed.
6. The people will groan.
Let America learn from the nation of Israel so that you will not fall into error. Allow God to direct you while you vote.
God bless you!
