Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
Elections always bring out the, well…, let us just say it brings out the interesting side of people. Some folks are for one candidate for their reasons, and some are for another for their own reasons. If you ask either of them why they like one candidate better than the next, they each one firmly believes they are right. After the dust settles and the Election Day is done, it is sometimes hard to want to support the person put in office because of all the negative things that have been said about them during election season.
One thing that may help is remembering today’s verse. No matter which party they represent, or what agendas they uphold, the Bible says God is still in control. They might lean one way or another, and at times even make huge mistakes. However, the end of all things will come out exactly as God desires. The ultimate decision for how things will end is the Lords. Therefore, I guess when you and I pray for our leaders to do the things that we think are right, we must also remember, if they do something different, God has allowed it for this time.
Remember always to pray for the leaders in your life. Governors, Senators, Congressional Representatives, Mayors, The President, Vice President, Generals, and oh yes, never forget their Spouses. Remember their hearts and our futures are always in God’s hands.
