I was led to pray for the next president. I will not be voting until the contest is probably down to one or two in my party. But I thought of the US and why we were founded. Did you know we were unique at the time? We may still be. We were created so that people could worship God according to their conscience. And God gave us free will. So God must approve of that, even when it makes him angry what we choose to do with that free will.
And I thought of Moses and the people of Israel and the situation of the Israelites in Exodus 32, beginning in verse 9.
9 The LORD said to Moses, â€œI have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. 10 â€œNow then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation.â€
11 Then Moses entreated the LORD his God, and said, â€œO LORD, why does Your anger burn against Your people whom You have brought out from the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 â€œWhy should the Egyptians speak, saying, â€˜With evil intent He brought them out to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earthâ€™? Turn from Your burning anger and change Your mind about doing harm to Your people. 13 â€œRemember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants to whom You swore by Yourself, and said to them, â€˜I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heavens, and all this land of which I have spoken I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.â€™â€
14 So the LORD changed His mind about the harm which He said He would do to His people.
So I am entreating the Lord. Remember the reasons we established this country. It was for your glory. Please use this next election for your glory.
