I rarely talk about ballot issues or political candidates, even with my own family members. But I do talk to God about them. Does God Care about Voters?
Of course He does. He is love, so he cares about everything we go through, from a bee sting to a bad relationship; from a D on a quiz to a divorce. He cares. And he wants to be involved in every area of our lives, even politics. This is what he has to say in his Word, the Bible, about politics:
"He sets up kings (or any other rulers) and deposes them" (Daniel 2:20) NIV.
" 'Woe to the obstinate,' declares the Lord, 'to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit.' "
(Isaiah 30:1), NIV.
"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known" (Matthew 10:26) NIV.
“You’ve observed how godless rulers throw their weight around, how quickly a little power goes to their heads. It’s not going to be that way with you. Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for the many who are held hostage” (Matthew 20:26-28)The Message.
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness"
(I Timothy 2:1-2) NIV.
"Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Amighty, just and true are your ways, King of the ages. Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy, all nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed" (Revelation 15:3) NIV
These are only six thoughts out of a volume of sixty-six books! Yes, God cares about voters, because he cares about you.
Please pray, and please vote.
