If My People

 As I sit here, I think about all the talk about the election.  How some people are so upset and others are overjoyed.  I am taken back by how sure we are as people, that we know what’s best for everyone else.  We are convinced that our opinion is the correct one. We are sure that anyone that does not agree with us is at best an idiot, or at worst not a true follower of Jesus Christ.  As People we are so convinced that we are right, that God himself could not tell us any thing different.  Now I believe that this election was a very hard one for many Christians as neither person was a great choice, but it was the choice we had.  Both men seem to be good family men, but neither seems to follow Christ.  People say we must vote for the lessor of two evils, but I just don’t see that in the Bible.  What I do see is what God tells us in 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land
So, I think what we should do is what God tells us to do, we should pray.  We need God to move in our land, in the heart of our president, and in the hearts of our senators and congressmen.  Yes we want God to move, but he must first move in the hearts of His people, and then he will work in our land.
