politics of the prayerful kind

In our morning devotions, our Old Testament reading is currently going through the book of Second Samuel which focuses on the reign of King David. Yesterday I was caught by a verse that repeated itself in short chapter eight - "The LORD gave David victory wherever he went." (in verse six and fourteen) - followed by verse fifteen - "David reigned over all Israel, doing what was just and right for all his people."

Interesting verses to consider during an election year of promises, eh? Wouldn't it be wonderful to elect someone who loved the Lord our God with all their heart, with all their soul, with all their strength? Wouldn't it be nice to know that whoever was elected in whatever position of government that by loving God in that manner the overflow of their lives would be doing what was just and right for ALL the people? That their motives would never have to be questioned? That they had a heart that was following after God's Will in such a manner that the Lord blessed them with victory wherever they went?

Ah yes....definitely something to be praying for during the final weeks before an election as we shudder with each media sound bite that comes alive.

Off my little soapbox......
