{day 21} politics and prayer

I can speak intelligently about many things. Some may disagree.

I mean, I do like to think I am a rather intelligent gal. For the most part.

However, when it comes to politics, I will quickly bow out of a conversation. I don't watch the news. I rarely read the newspaper. And I certainly do not like all the negativity that shrouds campaign season.

But I do know this. I know that I earnestly seek God when voting for leaders of my county, state and country.

We are a great nation. But we are a corrupt nation. Such is life on earth. We are a fallen creation. And too many people, both the leaders and the citizens, are seeking their own ways.

But one thing remains the same. It's the one thing that will never change.

God is still on His throne. And Jesus sits at His right side.

I read this post the other day and it resonated with my heart. I pray it does the same for you.

'Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.'
2 Chronicles 7:14

I have been and will continue to pray in the days leading up to the election. Not only for our national leaders, but my local leaders, as well.

And despite how I vote in November and despite the outcome of the election, I will still serve and worship.a risen Savior.

'As children of God, we should be unthreatened by secular power. The Law was never able to bring redemption, and it is still insufficient to make all things new. The healing and hope and goodness we long for is realized fully in Jesus, extended through His people despite hardship or distance or the passage of time or the changing of guards. No political party can see it through or take it away. It was finished on the cross, and the discussion is over.'

No leader of the free world will ever be able to save our nation from all the corruption.

That was done on the Cross. And Jesus already claimed the victory.
