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 will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
I too am very concerned about the economics of this country. It doesn’t matter which candidate is elected we are going to have hard times ahead of us. We cannot expect to not be effected personally by the economic state of this country….pay day is coming and I am hoping that everyone of you are making some kind of provisions for the future. More importantly, if we are the Christians we say we are, and believe as we say we do, then we must make our voting for this election an extension of that, a true act of worship.
Though the Republican candidate (Mit Romney) is not perfect and far from it….He obviously stands more for our Christian Morals and Values……Vote LIFE”", We must “Vote TRUTH” and trust God with the outcome. God said if we will exalt him above all else, we will never have to beg for bread. This whole nation is made up of individuals whom God is concerned about them personally, calling them, whooooing them, unto himself. If we, (the Christians of this nation) do not stand up and do what we have been called to do, not only is there not going to be much of a future for us, but this nation as a whole, our neighbors, sons, and daughters are all going to suffer and pay for it.
If our life is to be an act of worship, then that includes our vote as well. So many people will be voting for the candidate that they feel will give them more free handouts. Is that the Christian way? The Christian way, is to uphold the Word of God ( in word and in deed), not wavering, trusting God to meet all of our needs according to his riches in glory through Christ Jesus. Even if we as Christians were the minority, “Where two or
more are gathered in my name, I am in their midst”.
In less than 3 weeks, we will all be gathering at the polls, on the same day. Please! “GO IN HIS NAME”. We want his presence to be there. Make your voting an act of worship! Take him with you! This is a crucial time in our nation’s history and future.
I’m excited about what God is able and wanting to do in our future, but it has to happen through us! The years ahead of us are going to be difficult years, but we must look at them as an opportunity to be a witness and an example of the Awesome Love and Power of God! God is going to use us in helping those around us who are less fortunate then us. I believe that we are going to be used to help keep our neighbors from going hungry and to have a place to keep warm, demonstrating the love and provisions God has provided us. And when they see that through us, they too will bow their knee to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Yes there are difficult times ahead of us, but at the same time, “very exciting times ahead of us”. I’m reminded of the scripture in Exodus when Moses extends his staff and says to the Israelites, “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD.
Do you have your staff in hand? Is it extended? Now is the time! If your not ready, Get Ready! The fields are white with harvest!
