Daniel 2:21-22 And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.
Truly we are living in remarkable times! Today is probably one of the most significant days of our lifetime as Americans go to the polls and decide the future of the United States. Of course, voting is important, but let’s be sure we know what we’re voting for!
In 1938, Kenneth Simmons, a Democratic mayor, wanted to prove a point. So he hauled a mule, whom he named Boston Curtis, down to the courthouse and placed its hoof print on all the documents necessary to run for political office. Although Boston Curtis never ran a political campaign, the citizens of Milton, Washington, voted for Boston Curtis – not realizing that they had actually voted for a MULE! Simmons wanted to demonstrate that voters often “know not whom they support.” I would say he proved his point.
Many have suggested they are voting for the lesser of two evils. However, another way to look at elections may be, whom shall I vote for that will bring about the greatest good?
The decisions made today will affect the world for years to come. But we should never lose sight of the fact that the Lord sets up and removes kings according to His perfect will and purpose; so whatever the outcome of today’s contest, let’s be sure that the King of all Kings sits on the throne of our hearts, and that EVERY outcome in this world is under His sovereign will, for our good!
