Today’s most pressing issue facing our nation (the U.S.) today is the upcoming presidential election. Wait…I see you. Don’t sigh or roll your eyes thinking to yourself “Here is another person trying to convince me of whom to vote for”. Now I am not going to blog as an independent, republican or democrat. I would not use God’s platform to push one agenda over another one. But instead read as God’s perspective is discussed.
See confusion is NOT from God. He knows who He wants to win this upcoming election. We need to ask Him who to vote for. How do we do that? We do it through prayer. We need to pray without ceasing for God’s will to be revealed to us. See prayer is simply asking God to intervene into our lives and situations. Prayer IS that simple. Prayer isn’t complicated or confusing. Through prayer, we are asking for God’s help. We are asking Him to step into our situation and help us. God is a gentleman. He will intervene when He is asked .
God’s word says that we should pray without ceasing. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16 – 5:18 it reads: 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. We all need to be praying for divine revelation for this election. We all need to be asking God for His will be fulfilled for this election.
See I believe in my heart that God is ready to heal and restore this land back to where it needs to be to glorify Him. I also believe that his nation was founded on God. Yes, yes, yes I know our founding fathers had issues but who among us is perfect? None of us. Only Jesus was and continues to be perfect! God’s word says we are all sinners. Here is what is says in Romans 3:23: 23 since all have sinned and continually fall short of the glory of God. This nation needs to be healed. It’s crying out for healing. The healing of our land, our people and the nation as a whole needs to happen soon.
God’s word says in 2 Chronicles 7:14: My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
I truly believe the answer for our land to be healed is right here in that passage. Let’s take a closer look. It starts out by God calling the people who are called by His name. I believe He is saying anyone who believes He is the one true God and that Christ is His begotten son are the people who are “called by His name”. Secondly it asks us to humble ourselves and pray. There it is. Be humble and “pray”. Thirdly, seeking His face is looking for God’s glory. The face of God is glorious! Fourth, He asks us to turn from our wicked ways by stopping our sins. This can be accomplished by praying for God to change our hearts, thoughts and ways Also by asking for forgiveness. Then, He says He will hear us, forgive our sins and heal our land.
In closing, we need to remember how critical this election is. I cannot express this enough. We need to give God the authority for His will to be fulfilled. Please help by praying without ceasing. God bless.
