Americans across the United States turned out yesterday in record numbers to vote for the candidate of their choice. There has been vigorous debate over opinion, platforms, and positions, and hopes and dreams for the future were the deciding factors in the polling booths.
I did my civic duty and voted for the individuals who I thought were the best qualified; however, as I voted I did so with the knowledge that the political process has its limitations. The answer to the problems we face as Americans is not found in a political party.
Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or an Independent, your party affiliation is powerless to exact the change that is needed. This change will only occur when people begin to thirst for the presence of God.
Please read the verses below, and then read them again and repeat them aloud to God as a prayer for our nation:
• 2 Chronicles 7:14: If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
• Proverbs 14:34: Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
• Psalm 85:6: Will You not revive us again so that Your people may rejoice in You?
Before we can change as a nation, we must first change as individuals. Ask God to change you, so you can be the change America needs.
