Good morning all-
Well today is voting day in the United States. It's a day where we get to elect our next President and it's a day History is made. Why? Because once again, no matter who you're going to vote for, God will decide the fate of the US. So far, not so great. God is in control of every election and of everything on earth. We choose the candidate based upon issues but God is choosing for all of us based upon our actions.
The United States used to be a country under God. We used to understand that free speech and free religion were important. Our forefathers knew that One Nation Under God Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All would survive. Today, we pick and choose our language and we rarely put anything under the umbrella of God.
If you live in the US, you know exactly what I'm saying is true. God is coming out of our schools, our businesses and our government. Yes, God was to be separate but never apart. Today, we are guided by our own principles and we have forgotten what it means to be with God. The only way to be protected is to protect the covenant of God and we have done a horrible job of that. Christians in the US still fight. We are fighting on a battlefield that is hard to win but nevertheless, we are fighting. We will see if the Christian vote matters today and if God chooses a candidate that can help propel the US.
I'm not sure the President will matter in all this, only Christ knows that answer. We have a congress that has forgotten about the people but we are too ignorant to vote them out. Ideas and agendas for power are the only things they see. We have to infuse ideas and get back to where we were founded or the US is doomed. We will be like every other great power, crushed, destroyed and forgotten. If you live in the US today please go out and vote. We were given the right and we must take every opportunity to show God that we care. Israel is in need of a protector and we must protect Israel if we are to stay a great power. If you don't believe that look into the Old Testament, it's all spelled out for you.
The only way the US became great in a sea of fish was because we were founded on sound principles and God was at the forefront. Today, our economy is sliding, the stock market is tanking and people everywhere are homeless and jobless. Times are tough but they can and will get tougher if we don't start carrying the torch and speaking the name of Jesus. Our battle on earth is spiritual. We must unite with our maker and pray that He will have His will on this day. I pray that and I hope you join me in praying for the people and the nation. It's our time. We were born for this moment. Don't let your guard down now, pick up the cross and believe!
If you don't live in the US, pray for your country. God's hand is on every country in the world. He knows the decisions that are being made and the corruption that exists. He is fighting in the wings but His soldiers must pray for direction and protection. Today, we will pray not only for the US but the entire world. We need good leaders everywhere that understand the power of the cross. My prayer will continue to be today that the Lord's will be done! Why? Because I have no control. All I can do is go to Jesus and ask Him to direct this countries course. I pray that you will join me today.
Revelation 1:8 NKJV:
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
Psalm 47:8 NKJV:
God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne.
Psalm 33:12 NKJV:
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
My prayer today:
O, Lord, You know that we are a sinful nation. We have turned our eyes on sinful things and have left You behind. We were once known as a nation under God but we are wavering like the spring wheat. O, Lord, come before us and establish our nation and all other nations under You. For when You are with us, no one can be against us. I pray today for the US and for every country needing a good leader. Please Lord put into place men that will hear from You. I am asking that we will all turn toward the cross and not away. I am praying for a nation that is proud of its heritage. A nation where Presidents like Lincoln and Eisenhower stood. A nation under God! That's my prayer today. We must stand up and ask You to choose our leader. I am asking that people will be responsible today and vote and that the name of the Lord will be heard. I don't know which candidate You will put into office today but I'm praying that they will bow before You. I'm praying that they will choose Godly men to serve around them and that their agendas match Yours. We need this nation to go back to believing that God is great and that we must protect Israel. David once asked, "If God is for us, who is against us?" I'm praying today that You are for us and that we will return back to Your ways. We are no longer a powerful nation, we sit in debt to a communist country. People are blinded by the events of this world and are not looking toward a future but I'm confident that You reign above the nations and that Your will, will be done today. Give us ears to hear and hands to vote. Make us strong in You and provide us the necessary wisdom we need to vote today. I pray that this will not be about parties or color or anything but You. We must stand on principles and You are the only one that can sustain the US. I thank You for coming to our aide time and time again. Please do so today as the nations cry out and as we sing, HOLY HOLY IS THE LORD ALMIGHTY! Without You, we are nothing. In Jesus name, AMEN
