Proverbs 2:7 – He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity
What an incredible answer to our prayers! Thank you, Lord!
WISDOM IN DECIDING
Proverbs 2:6 – For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
There are many last-minute voters who will head to the polls for in-person balloting. Have they decided who will get a nod from then yet?
In a time when divisions are so broad and positions sharply delineated, deciding the right persons to lead America would not seem difficult—your perspective on them, their ideas, and plans for the future might dictate. But for the undecided, now is the day to fall upon your knees and beseech the Lord for His wisdom. Psalm 19:8 says, “The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.” Today’s verse also reminds you that it is the Lord who gives wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. All should look to His Word. Compare His values to the statements of the candidates. Remove their uncertain emotions from the equation and follow the Lord. His plans are holy, right, and noble. He has never led us wrong and never will!
Holy God, I pray humbly today for Christian Americans who remain undecided in this election. I ask, Lord, that You would guide them in Your Word to an understanding of what is right, holy, and correct for the United States of America. Give them courage to stand on Your principles, and to be led by Your Holy Spirit in their decisions. Guide them to the persons You have for working out Your sovereign plan for this nation. My trust is fully in You. I pray that the election results will bring You the ultimate glory, in Jesus’ Name,
