This Election

In this election season we are inundated with news broadcast of Republicans and Democrats all vying for the Ďhighest office in the land.Ē Of course as Christians we know the highest office in the land is that of Lord and Saviour and that position is already taken.

We as Christians can line up our Christian beliefs with those of our respected candidate; we can veer away from him or her if they donít line up, or veer toward him or her if they do. We can make assessments based on background, experience, or perhaps words. We can look at crowds of people flocking to one candidate or the other and compile the measure of a man or a woman by the response that man or woman receives.

We can choose to be influenced by talk show host and radio personalities and the overwhelming contributions that many Americans make in opposition for or against the candidates.

We can seek to pick up stones in order to condemn him or her for associations, past imperfections, and the crime of being in opposition to what is appropriate and polite.
We can choose to jump on the many band wagons that remain ever present in this Presidential race, or not.

Or we can choose to be set apart. The bible speaks of sanctifying ourselves, which is ultimately to be set apart. Scripture tells us in I Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

If our faith truly stands in the power of God, and we believe that God hears us when we pray, then it would serve to reason that we pray that the Lord Jesus speak to our hearts regarding His choice in this campaign.

We put aside all of the comments, suggestions, ideas, and evidence to the contrary of this or that, we turn off the radio and unplug the TV and we have a conversation with the Lord. In that conversation we ask for His guidance and His counsel in helping us make our decision.

Whether we choose to pray about it, be influenced by the media and radio personalities, I donít know itís your decision to do so or not, but one thing I can assure you, without hesitation, standing wholly and completely on faith, one thing I know is this, His will, will be done, regardless of who said what in the past and who has yet to speak, Godís will, will be done.

At the end of the day whoever stands before us in 2009 is exactly what was supposed to happen. Remember this, All things work for the good of those who are the called according to his purpose. Remember we have spiritual eyes, letís remember to use them, weíve been observing with our natural eyes for far too long, His will, will be done.

God is definitely in control...no matter what we think. Great column. I wanted Sarah Palin to be the president, but Jesus is my true ruler. Thanks for writing here at Faithwriters. I've truly enjoyed reading your entries. May God bless. Sincerely, Dan Blankenship
