“Honesty will keep you safe, but everyone who is crooked will suddenly fall.
When crooks are in control, everyone tries to hide, but when they lose power, good people are everywhere.”
Proverbs 28:18 & 28
The Presidential election in the United States in 2016 is very unique. One major candidate has never been elected to any political office and the other one is the wife of a former President. One side claims the other candidate is “unfit” in almost every way to be the President and the other side says that his opponent is a “crook” and should be in prison. Now there is rumor that a major foreign country is releasing stolen emails to influence the campaign.
Does it matter who the person is, who is the head of a country? Of course it does! Are the people better off if their leader, as well as being competent and courageous is moral and God fearing? Of course they are!
In countries where leaders are elected by the people those who lead are a direct reflection of the people who put them in office. Godless, ignorant and immoral people, who might accurately be called “crooks” will vote for people like themselves.
It is not the leaders who change a nation, it is rather the nation who changes it leaders!
So, if you are a follower of Jesus Christ and are concerned about the state of your nation, then pray that God will send a mighty wave of revival and conviction of sin across your land! When that happens righteousness will win and evil will be turned away! It will be a tsunami that brings life and peace instead of death and destruction!
“Lord Jesus, help me to change the world around me by telling everyone I meet about Your life-giving love. May You, Jesus be praised forever. Amen.”
