One Vote at a Time
Adapted from “One Vote at a Time” by Andrew Wommack
We’ve just entered 2020—an election year.
While every American has the privilege and responsibility to vote, Christians should have the highest voter turnout of any group in the nation. We can’t afford to become cynical or indifferent to what’s happening around us. We have to do our part.
You may not think that your one vote carries much weight, but the combined power of our numbers would change the course of history and steer this nation in a godly direction.
Don’t be the weak link in the chain. Let’s stand together!
Casting a ballot is our opportunity to follow Proverbs 31:8-9, which instructs us to “open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.”
The greatest example of those who cannot speak for themselves is the unborn. Psalm 139 speaks of how God had plans for us before we were even born. We as Christians, need to take a stand for unborn children and those who don’t have a voice. We are making progress, but more needs to be done.
It’s a lie and a deception to think that ungodly laws don’t hurt all that much. Tell that to the aborted babies! Stand up and say something. Don’t be silent. I like the Bonhoeffer quote: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
The passing of laws impacts our whole society. Just think—because of the philosophy of one man, millions of Jews were exterminated under the hand of a godless government. Even more disturbing is the fact that Hitler was elected into office by a people who had been lulled into believing that he was for the common good.
Though the collective power of the people can accomplish great things, God has always believed in the power of one.
David fought Goliath—one man, one stone. What appeared to require an army only needed one man with the power of the living God behind him. If we always look at the situation with our government through natural eyes, it would be easy to get discouraged. But we need to look at our ballots like David did that stone.
God can do great things—one vote at a time.
Let’s not wait until right before this year’s election to take a stand. Talk to everyone in your sphere of influence and encourage them to take a stand to turn America back in a godly direction and to vote.
Get involved. When we face giants, we never do so alone.
