I have waited until several days after the Presidential Election before I would make any comments (for what they are worth).
Many have asked my opinion and what we as Christians should do, and what’s going to happen in the future.
First, let me say that as a Believer, I do not look to Washington or a President, no matter who they may be, for as the Bible says in Psalms 121:2, “My help comes from the Lord, which made Heaven and Earth.” Actually, one should read all eight Verses as it clearly states the Lord as our Helper.
Second, the people have spoken, they voted for the one they want and for what they want. We elect what we are. Too many people in America today want the Government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave.
I like what Judge Andrew P. Napolitano wrote a few days ago:
“What is going on is the present-day proof of the truism observed by Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, who rarely agreed on anything in public. When the voters recognize that the public treasury has become a public trough, they will send to Washington not persons who will promote self-reliance and foster an atmosphere of prosperity, but rather those who will give away the most cash and thereby create dependency.” What a true statement for today.
Third, never forget that the Nation is always a reflection of the Church. As it has been said, “As the Church goes, so goes the Nation.” The Nation is in the shape it’s in because the Church has never been in worse spiritual shape than today.
Fourth, no matter who is elected to lead our Nation, we as Christians are to do as the Bible says in I Timothy 2:1-3:
“I exhort therefore that, first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men. For kings (in our case Presidents) and for all who are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all Godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”
While I may not like or approve of this President’s policies, I will still pray for him and intercede for him that somehow the Lord can open the eyes of our leaders and that God will come to our Nation, but if not, I take heart in knowing God is still on the Throne and in the end His Will will be done.
This has been the musings and ramblings of an Independent Christian Voter.
