I vote, But I Trust in God

Written By: Wesley - Oct• 31•12

This is part 5 of the series on voting. Please read the other four parts in order to give context this post.  You can read them here, here, here, and here.

Next week I will vote.  I have in mind the people and measures that I think will best promote good and limit evil in our fallen world.  I, along with thousands of other Americans, will stand in line, tell the people my name, then go to the voting booth and use the touch screen.

On that day, some people will rejoice that their “side” won.  Others will be appalled that their “side” lost.  Anytime you have an election some will be happy and some will be sad.

That night those who are happy will watch newscasts that tell them that the nation has been saved and righteousness has been restored.  Those on the other side will say that apocalypse is upon us.

I will say this:

Some trust in chariots and some trust in horse, but I trust in the name of the Lord –Psalm 20:7.

I hope that the results of the vote end up with good being promoted and evil being limited, but whether they do or not, I know that my God is still in control and that I can trust Him whatever happens.

So, next week if you are convinced your vote can limit the evil in our world and promote good, then by all means vote, but when you come home tonight, pray to God who is truly in control!

    Yes! Ultimately it’s God who puts men into office. I can rest knowing that my vote will count, but my prayers will count more.
