Daily Insight October 16
God expects you to choose your leaders based on His kingdom values and goals.
“Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men, and I will appoint them as your heads.” Deuteronomy 1:13.
Today’s insights inform us that God advances His plans through the election or selection of people. Our vote or election is important in the overall implementation of God’s kingdom plan on the earth. God has His divine ideals, and He partners with people like you and me to establish it.
Sometimes I come across the question of what I think about the coming US presidential election and the candidates. People make political parties. However, God is more interested in His kingdom agenda and goals. I would say this, if you are a Christian and believe the Bible is God’s Word, then your worldview is not what culture dictates or supports. You form your worldview on what the Bible and God’s Word says to you.
Secondly, understand today’s significant issues—the church in the past faced with idol worship, false teaching, and hypocritical legalism, and few others. However, Think what in the world is against the Bible values today. Of course, here in the US, it is not the worship of idols. Truly, false teaching is still an issue. Along with it, I believe other major current issues includes pro life vs. pro choice, alternate sex life style, threat against the traditional family structure, racism, religious extremism like ISIS and militant and intolerant religious bias all over the world, worry about religious freedom, and of course where do we stand with God’s promise to the nation Israel and Gospel proclamation. Are we going to be against Israel or pro-Israel? Are we going to support religious freedom that allows us to communicate God’s love and grace freely?
These and other important questions must be answered based on the Word of God before we go and cast our votes. This year’s election is more important than the 2016 election because of the extremist thought process and resultant actions we observed in the past few years.
I do not suggest to whom you should vote. Both men have inadequacies and faults because they are human. However, what is their conviction about Bible values? As Dr. Tony Evans recently said, I also believe God is not interested in Republicans or Democrats. I do not think He favors Democrats or Republics. Both have good and bad people and policies. However, I know one thing -God is passionate and aggressive about the values He placed in His eternal, and everlasting Word called the Bible. Regardless of what you do or do not do, God would move forward with his timeless principles and fulfill His kingdom agenda. Knowingly or unknowingly, you and I can be part of it or against it. It is a good thing to participate in God’s kingdom goals and agenda.
Therefore pray for wisdom. Suppose you sincerely pray for wisdom according to His promise. In that case, he will give you abundant wisdom without reproach or rebuke. As God gives insight into your heart due to your genuine prayer, make sure you go to the voting locations and cast your vote. The only thing I would like to say is you must vote for God’s agenda and program. Forget about political parties and personalities. Focus on God’s timeless principles and kingdom ideas and plan.
Remember, we cannot afford to be silent and passive. We have to get involved in God’s plan because we are His children. The teachbible.org is online because we do not want to be quiet or passive about God’s salvation and goals. We must get involved with God. He called us to do it. We have a role to play, and by casting our votes based on Bible values, we are doing the will of God this year. Go forward, take time to vote, and express your choice in this election based on Bible values and the well being of our children and nation.
“Father in heaven, I want to participate with you in your kingdom plan. I need wisdom to figure out who should I caste my vote. Please give me your wisdom based on Your Word. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.”
