“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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 forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 7:13-14

          We are a week away from the most critical election in recent history and it is the responsibility of every Christian to get out and vote.  We hear the media spin and the constant reports regarding both candidates.  We must not take these reports at face value to determine our decision but delve deeper into the truth to find out exactly where the candidates stand on the critical issues facing our nation and impacting us individually.  We must also look at the running mate of each candidate to find out their stance on the issues as well.  Please read carefully the political party platform of each candidate and determine if the party’s stance on the issues are in agreement with your values and beliefs.  Do your homework, study to find out about each candidate, pray specifically for God’s direction and please take the time to vote.

          We know that the economy, healthcare and world events are very important topics during this election season.  However, for us as Christians, our religious liberties are also very much at stake.  Remember, some of the first business of the new President will be to nominate a Supreme Court judge.  This President could possibly have the opportunity to nominate two or more judges to the Supreme Court during his or her tenure.  Decisions of the Supreme Court will affect us for a very long time because the judges serve for a lifetime.  We have seen in recent years the impact the Supreme Court has had on our morality, values and beliefs.  So, this election will have a far-reaching impact on our nation.

          What does all this mean for us?  We know that the god of this world has blinded the eyes of so many people.  We should not allow ourselves to be pushed into a corner, to remain silent about the issues or think we have no reason to vote.  We should be actively involved in the process while continuing to tell others the Good News of Jesus.  God is still in full control regardless of the outcome.  Look again at the passage above.  There are four things that God requires of those who know Him in order to see needed changes.  We must humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways.  God will accomplish His part if we are faithful with ours.  If Christians decide not to vote, you can be assured of the future direction of our nation!

                                                                                                                                              We love you,

                                                                                                                                              Brad and Virginia
