Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
The Bible has once again pointed out a fact that we all see played out in today’s world. When good men are in authority, people rejoice. Putting it simply, God blesses men who love Him and attempt to do His will. Because God blesses these righteous leaders, then all who are under the authority of this righteous leader will also receive the benefits of those blessings.
The problem we have in today’s society seems to be the same problem the children of Israel had. We are doing just as they did when we forget where that all good things come from. Once we begin to prosper from the blessing of God toward a righteous leader, we become content and happy, and we forget. We forget to keep the righteous person in authority. We allow those with perverted views of Biblical morals to have the rule over us. Even worse, we vote them in.
As Christians, we need to stand up for God’s Word. Not just at home, but also in the church, the neighborhood, and at work or school. We must also stand up for God’s truths in the voting booth. Even though no one else sees what you do on that ballot, God sees it.
Pray for the leadership over you today. If they are not saved, pray someone will reach them with the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray they will have the courage to stand up for what is right. This is truly a bipartisan action. We need to pray for ALL the leaders of this great land, regardless of party affiliation.
