No need for indecision

James 1:5 – If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

Ahead of the 2008 election, an article appeared in the Christian Post that asked the question, “Why are so many Christians confused about the election?” Among the things the author said are, “Our future is fraught with much peril and uncertainty.”   He said the “watchmen on the wall” had abandoned their post, leaving spiritual gaps that allowed the enemy to sneak in. “The people of God became a people in bondage to their own refusal to see beyond the deception of the coming calamity,” just as in Ezekiel 33.

The call then, as it must be now, is not to be afraid but to “remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes” (Nehemiah 4:14). God has given you the promise of insight, of knowledge beyond what you could ask or think, to help you decide the course of America’s future by the direction you vote.  Search the Scriptures. Understand God’s values. Seek out the candidates that most closely align their positions with God’s Word. Then be that watchman on the wall, passing your insight on like a “eureka” moment to your undecided friends and fellow believers. It is not a time to be idle.

Pray With Us

All Glorious Father in Heaven, all wisdom and all knowledge resides in You. Thank You for disbursing it to us as we need it, especially in light of the coming election. I pray, Lord, that Your people would not be idle when it comes to voting, but will exercise their right and privilege, and indeed their duty, to vote for those whose goals and ideals most closely follow Your own. Give wisdom, discernment, and insight to them. Remove all fear of the outcome, in Jesus’ Name,
