I am writing this post before the election results are tabulated. I do not know who will be our next President as I write. God knows, but at this point He is the only one who knows. The election appears to be a toss up. It could go either way. To me that is very telling about our Nation and our values.
It seems impossible to believe that we would elect someone who supports and pushes partial birth abortions. It seem impossible that we would chose a President who does not value marriage as being solely between a man and a woman. It seems impossible that we would elect a President who promotes a socialist agenda and a godless society.
Could we elect such a person?
We already have done that in the last election, and by the time your read this we may have elected him again. I pray not, but it could happen.
Regardless of who wins this Presidential election, our Nation must return to God. Sin is a reproach, but righteousness exalts a Nation. How do we get rid of sin? We repent. We turn from our wicked ways. We put God first and follow in all of His ways.
My commitment is to do all I can no matter who wins this election to proclaim the truth and righteousness of God. Jesus is the way, the truth, the life. When we go His ways and walk in His truth the results is abundant life. That is what He has promised. God has promised abundant life through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
I have prayed diligently for months over this election. However, I believe our turn around as a people is not dependent upon who is in the White House, but rather it is dependent upon who is Lord in our house. If Jesus is Lord of the hearts, homes, and lives of God's people then all will be well.
I am praying that God will help me as a preacher to proclaim the righteousness of God. I am praying that God will send a revival into my heart and the hearts of pastors and church across America. I am praying the we will return to the Lord and walk in His ways. Then God will heal our Land.
A new President will help America, but revival is the only true answer to the needs of our Land.
