The Battle is Over—Did You Vote for the Lord?

The election is over. Your candidate of choice either won or lost. Did you pray the Lord’s will be done as you went into the booth and did you vote in favor of the Lord’s will? It is a serious matter and if a Christian thinks it is not he is mistaken in his thinking. Note the words of the psalmist: “for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart; if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:2-3, ESV). Just who are the upright in heart? The Lord’s servants, of course. Consequently, when arrows are (or were) shot from the candidate you chose, were those arrows shot toward (and against) the Lord’s servant, against the foundations of morality that are crucial to a civilized society? I may not be able to make much of a difference in the community in which I live, but I will always try to make a difference in this respect.
