“What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick!”
…..Gov. Sarah Palin in her acceptance speech September 3, 2008
I absolutely loved her speech.
Eventhough we are the ones who vote, God puts our presidents in place, just as He put kings in their places in the Bible. He gives us the rulers He wants us to have at the right time. But something we don’t always think about is He might give us a ruler who is not a good one. If He does, it will be to teach us something we need to learn.
So….if we don’t vote for Godly leaders, He might just give us what we deserve. That’s a scary thought.
Prov 8:15-16…..15 By me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; 16 by me princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. NIV
Dan 2:20-22…..Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. 21 He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. NIV
