Voting God’s Will.
This is a picture of prayers that were posted during our service this past Sunday. We wanted people to pray for their “issue”. It was a really powerful service. The whole point was to stop and simply recognize that whatever happens God is in control and he is orchestrating things to his great purpose.
So that leads me to this question; is it really possible to “vote” God’s will? This would suggest that there is but one candidate that by voting for we are signifying the fact that indeed God has chosen this one person to be elected. Furthermore, by not voting for that candidate or by voting for the opposite candidate then we are voting against God’s will. Additionally, if it is God’s will that a particular candidate take office then really what does my vote do either way? One last question: what if I don’t sense that God is willing me to vote for a particular candidate? Does this mean that I am out of touch with God? Or could it be that God doesn’t really care who I vote for but cares more about who I trust?
Help me out here…
