I have never been big on Politics; in fact the debates and speeches, no matter what end or side is speaking, kinda stresses me out.
I don't care to watch because there seems to be such pride and arrogance on both parts. Everyone just seems to have to get their jabs in and poke fun of the others.
Then the attitudes seep outside the television screen, and gets everyone else arguing their side. They get so pumped up and ready to fight for who they believe should win Americas vote. Now if only we as people would speak out, and stand up for Gods' leadership as a nation the way we do for these politicians. If only we would support Gods' wishes and honor them with our heads held high, so proud of Him- ready to defend the one and only God it would be a beautiful thing!
We as Americans think these politicians hold our whole world in their hands,
when we in our hearts know who really does.
We are called to trust Him because He is "already" our leader- He created us, and did more for us than any politician ever could or will!
Now that is something to defend and be proud of- that's our heritage!!!
So when I vote, I will vote solely on the person who carries Gods word and values out to the people.
The person who is not afraid to be less popular by following Gods' word, in the values of life, marriages, sexual origin, and especially character, because we were not called to live outside of His will; because He loves us that much! Oh yes He does!
We were not called to be proud of ourselves because:
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2: 8,9
And bottom line is everyone makes mistakes and poor decisions- but God never will,
He's got the whole world in His hands (not just America).
When we make our decisions, all of them; not limited to voting, we need to make them based on what God says in His word-
then you'll know you've done the right thing-
and who can argue that?
Not a soul in the word!
1 John 4:4-6 "You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever does not know God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood."
1 John 2: 26-27 "I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. As for you, the annointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His annointing teaches you about all things and as that annointing is real, not counterfeit- just as it has taught you to remain in Him."
1 John 5:21 "Dear Children, keep yourselves from idols."
