“To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. 1The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; 2Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; 3Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah. 4Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel. 5We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions. 6Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. 7Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. 8They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. 9Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.”
— Psalm 20:1-9
America Was Founded On Biblical Principles
Another election year is right around the corner. As we all know, we have enjoyed freedoms in our country which are a direct result of the Christian influence from those who founded this great nation. America was founded on biblical principles. Our forefathers knew the importance of prayer, they gave priority to worship. When choosing a candidate and political party you need to remember the name of the Lord and practice biblical voting.
Here Are A Few Pointers That I Have For Biblical Voting That I Wanted To Share With You Today:
1. Pledge your allegiance to Jesus
Christ is to be a Christian’s life. We are not placing trust in horses or chariots but in the name of our God. We are not voting for a candidate to be a pastor of a church; but rather, we are voting for an American to lead our country.
2. Trust God’s ultimate authority
We can be set free from the fear and worry because we trust God as the sovereign and good Ruler of all things. The Lord sets up “rulers” in 2016 just as He did in Daniel’s day. However, I believe He expects God’s people to be salt and light and help lead the choice for the right person to keep our goodly heritage.
3. Be aware
Do not stick your head in the sand and act like you are not American or your vote will not matter. Get informed! Pray and ask the Lord to lead you towards the right candidates in November when you vote.
4. You should get involved
As the salt and light of the world, we ought to properly use the liberties we’ve been given for the glory of God and the good of all people. Let’s be good stewards! What if this was your last chance to vote?
5. Point people to the hope of the gospel
Then we will see lasting change as God’s people get actively involved in the best political plan laid out by the world’s greatest leader – JESUS! Mathew 28:19-20 reminds us to – go, win, baptize and teach. King Jesus is still King! he is the only Savior that can make people free indeed.
Be contagious, but still be Christian!
Encourage others to vote! Do not argue, but act. Also use your influence to keep people positive during these days, as we have read the last chapter of the book and we all know who wins!
