Timothy 6:9-10 also says "People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge man into ruin and destruction.For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, some people eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many grief..."
What does this have to do with elections??? EVERYTHING!! Don't vote your pocketbook, vote your morals. If people respect the sanctity of marriage, respect the life of others, respect the Lord as ruler of all and base their decisions on THAT, we will turn this country around therefore pleasing the Lord and receive His blessings which will pour out of heaven. His blessings are above and beyond ANYTHING a human could promise us.
2 Chronicles 7:14 CLEARLY states..." If my people, who are called by my name, will seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land."
WOW what a profound statement. There has never been greater a time than now for a healing in this country... from the economy,environment and morally.
Lets think of our children, our grandchildren... what kind of world do you want for them? What kind of moral choices do you want them to see? What is right and wrong will no longer be black and white if we continue to chip away. There will be no more peace and contentment if we live in a world where everything goes. When will this end? Where do we draw the line?
My hearts prayer is that people don't look to humans to be their "savior" from financial ruin or for a better economy. When has man ever done things great? We still have wars...fighting killing. In fact its only gotten worse. We need to look up towards heaven and start healing this land. We need to vote what is right and we will see CHANGE!! True change, change only God can give. He is known as the prince of PEACE... and boy do we need that!
One day everyone will stand before the Lord. Whether you believe in him now or not. Everyone dies, everyone goes before Him. I never want to stand in His presence and have to give an account for my wrong decisions. When asked where my heart lies... I want Him to see that it stays with the "good."
So before you go to the poles really think about your decision. Your vote does not simply count for 4 years, it counts for eternity (whether you want to acknowledge that or not) It counts for your children, born, unborn or half born. It counts towards the wishes and prayers of our forefathers, and the true desires of our hearts.
We are SOO blessed to live in a country so rich even though we seem to struggle. We have food, freedom and life. Lets keep it that way and continue getting the blessings we deserve before its too late.
