Proverbs 24:21-22, My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”-Noah Webster
|Lord God, we now witness the encroachment of socialism upon our freedom and liberties for the very reason sited by Noah Webster so long ago. We have not been diligent in placing just men in places of power and authority, but we now seek to become vigilant stewards of the electorate and we ask for Your mercy and power in placing Godly godly men in women in the governing seats all across America, from the highest to the lowest, in Jesus’ name.
