Elections

Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except by Gods appointment, and the authorities that exist have been instituted by God.

In the United States we think we are the ones who select our government leaders through our election process.  We listen to their speeches, read about them and think we use our intellect to pick the best of the lot.  We should do all that but there is even more to do before we vote. God says our leaders are there by His appointment.  We do have a major part in who is leading.  We must pray and seek God for the answers of who  we should elect.  Sometimes it seems we have heard wrong.  Sometimes it seems God didn’t come through for our country.  This is forgetting the power of God.  Our question is will we do our part by praying then by voting on what we hear God speaking through the quiet inner voice of His Holy Spirit?  After the election results we may think God didn’t come through or we heard wrong but God is more powerful than any of our mistakes.  Our question then is will we pray for our leaders every day?  Let us put away our apathy and be obedient to God’s Word by praying and not complaining.
