Well, thinking about the government is exactly what I wanted to be thinking about first thing this morning. Ugh. I hate politics.
I hate the lies so many politicians present as fact. I hate more that so many people believe the lies without question. I hate the division politics has produced in our country.
So now you know what I think. What does God say about politics?
28:2 – When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order.
28:4 – Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law resist them.
28:5 – Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it fully.
28:9 – If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law, even his prayers are detestable.
29:4 – By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down.
29:12 – If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.
I just picked out a few of the things God has to say about rulers, about law… politics. I hope you’ll read it all and see if you don’t see us in there.
That’s why I want to encourage you to get involved. We need men and women who understand justice, who keep the law (of God and of the country), and most importantly, we need people who fear God.
We need Christians who will step up and, with God’s power, turn this country around. We are witnessing a push by Muslims to turn this country their way through our political system. We are witnessing people who want to throw out democracy and change our republic. We are watching our freedoms being hijacked, and citizens cheering on the hijackers. Does that concern you at all?
Do you feel the call of God to run for a political office? Do it! People all over this country are praying 2 Chronicles 7:13. But for God to answer that prayer, he is going to need His children to get busy, to get involved in the decision-making at local, state, and national levels. He needs someone who will hear the call and obey.
It just might be you.
