He raises up kings

For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, 
“For this very purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, 
and that my name may be declared in all the earth.”
Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills,
and whom He wills He hardens.
~Romans 9:17-18

Lord, let me serve my country 
by loving You with all my heart.”

We are days away from a great and important election. After nearly 4 years of the most pro-abortion/pro-socialist president in our American history, we now have the opportunity to replace him or leave him where he is.

Remember that according to the Declaration of Independence, our first inalienable right is life. If our leaders won't protect life, then can we expect them to protect our property, or our freedom? And with no life, there is certainly no freedom.

This whole world seems to be in those “sorrows” mentioned in Matthew 24. The earth is groaning. So much of the Muslim world is literally on fire in protest against America. Incredible moral and spiritual decline envelop us. Threats are in abundance and it can truly cause us to become fearful.

I encourage you to go to and watch recent archives of the World News Briefing? When we look around us things can seem overwhelming and scary but when we see things Biblically and prophetically, just is pretty darn exciting!!! “Look up, for your redemption draws near!” (Lk, 21:28) It's so good to have a heavenly perspective and to put our faith solidly in our unfailing God who is sovereign over all things...even nauseating politics.

...he (anti-Christ)...shall wear out the saints...”
(Dan. 7:25, KJV)

And let us not grow weary in while doing good,
for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
(Gal. 6:9)

The enemy's m.o. is to weary us. Keep doing the good GOD has called you to.

The next president will receive 100% of the vote- 
Jesus alone will choose.
And whomever He chooses 
will be better than we deserve."
~R.C. Sproul, Jr.

Whatever happens, we are in the hands of magnificent God who is working even the ugly around us into His perfect prophetic purpose! “...ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28, emphasis mine.) There is a big picture, a greater epic story; and we are a part of it. Play your part well. Pray. Vote wisely. You've been placed in this act and scene of world history “for such a time as this.” (Esther 4:14)

"And He changes the times and he seasons; 
'He removes kings and raises up kings; 
He gives wisdom to the wise 
and knowledge to those who have understanding."
~Dan. 2:21

There are many voter resources available. I have spent a considerable amount of time on this:  I include links to several voter guides and my own research on various candidates. you can essentially one-stop shop. Yea!

...believers have been given the prophetic task
of holding nations accountable 
to the standards of eternal truth.”

The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord;
he directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases.
~Proverbs 21:1

Register and vote! You matter!
