“When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, the stability will long continue.”
Our election years are for a period of four years. I know, many times that seems maybe too long, depending on what particular leaders we have and which party we belong to. A nation such as ours has been blessed with a lot of leaders who have the country’s best interest in mind. Then again, it may have had leaders who promote the philosophy that that particularly party adheres too.
A nation will be blessed with many with privileges and opportunities and will prosper when it has reasonable and intelligent leaders in government. As a people and a part of the nation we live in, we need to be aware of all the potential leadership abilities the candidates possess at election time to be able to keep the country healthy and strong. Then we will be able to intelligently, and with a sense of responsibility, place our vote for the most qualified leader. “By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.” (Proverbs 11:11)
It doesn’t take long for a country to be brought to ruins. More of us need to be in prayer for all those who are in a leadership position. Take the selection and work of our leaders seriously. Our future depends on it!
Prayer for today: Lord help us to be alert and aware of all we need to know about the potential leaders of our country, and that we would be diligent in making a right and accurate choice when we have the opportunity. Amen
