Proverbs 28:2 “For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.”
Seven weeks from now we will be offered the right to vote in America’s midterm elections. In reality, we should consider it more than a right; it is a privilege and a responsibility that we should neither neglect nor take lightly. The next several PLUS posts will focus on this important privilege.
There are several reasons why America is in its current atrophied state. The princes thereof have been many. Yet, we will only reclaim this land one person at a time, one prayer at a time, and one personal revival at a time. We will also only reclaim this land one vote at a time, one election at a time, and one elected official at a time.
As we vote, and we should, we must focus on electing those who demonstrate God-given understanding and knowledge. They may not be perfect, but they must be principled. Thomas Jefferson once said “God grant that men of principle shall be our principal men.” We need principled principal men more than ever in our elected offices.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD VOTE, AND VOTE ON GOD-GIVEN PRINCIPLE. The only way to remove the princes who lack principle is to vote for those who demonstrate principle. We must take our responsibility seriously to remove those who have led our land into transgression, and we will only do so one vote at a time. This upcoming election offers our nation a prolonged existence if done right.
