You Are Accountable To God

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness,And light dwells with Him. (Daniel 2: 20-22) NKJV

Today will most likely be one of the most important days of our lifetime, as the American people go to the polls and decide the future of this country, The United States Of America. Your vote, my vote, and the vote of our fellow countrymen will decide the course of this great nation. It will determine the course of the country. This is a very important election, so let us make sure we know the issues and let us also be sure we know what we're voting for. Let me give you a example of what I'm saying. I read the following paragraph from another blog.

In 1938, Kenneth Simmons, a democratic mayor, wanted to prove a point. So he hauled a mule, that he named Boston Curtis, down to the courthouse, and placed its hoof print on all the documents necessary to run for political office. Although Boston Curtis never ran a political campaign, the citizens of Milton, Washington voted for Boston Curtis – not realizing that they had actually voted for a MULE! Kenneth Simmons wanted to demonstrate that voters often do not who they support or for that matter their agenda." I would say he proved his point.

As Americans we have to make decisions today that will affect the world for decades and most likely beyond that. So when you go into the voting booth do not vote for a man for the free handouts, or the color of his skin, or what party he is a part of, vote for what is right in God's eyes. If you claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ then when you look at the issues you will see there is only one way to vote. This election is for sure one of voting for evil or voting for good.

But no matter how this election turns out we should never lose sight of the fact that the Lord still sets on the throne and He sets up leaders and He removes leaders according to His perfect will and purpose; so whatever the outcome of today's contest, let's be sure that the King of all Kings still sits on the throne and in the end it will be his will and none but His. The outcome of this election will not hinder His divine will. So when you vote today vote with a God given confidence, vote for what is right, and let your Righteous King do the rest.
