So many Americans seems to value in put their faith in force, aggression, bravado, machismo, profanity laden speech, shrewdness and uncertain riches.

Jesus taught and continues to teach…

LOVE…


FORGIVENESS…


RESTRAINT…


LONGSUFFERING…


SELF-CONTROL…


PEACE…


COMPASSION…


KINDNESS…

And even that nations don’t put their FAITH in the strength of their army, but their trust in Him…

Psalm 20:7 (NKJV)

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.

Psalm 146:3  (NKJV) 

Do not put your trust in princes,
Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

1 Timothy 6:17New King James Version (NKJV)

Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.

Many Christians point a self-righteous finger at the Jews for choosing Barabbas over Jesus (Matthew 27:15-26), when they were given a choice. However, they were given an opportunity to VOTE for Jesus based on His 3-year campaign filled of LOVE, MIRACLES and FORGIVENESS.

Yet, they chose a criminal.

This post is not biased towards one candidate in particular because the enemy cleverly used both leading candidates to convince Christians to disregard the values of Christ for their flesh.

One candidate clearly did not display one Fruit of the Spirit. That candidate was proudly unrepentant and unforgiving.

The other candidate promised to continue the assault against the first institution God ordained after creation, the family and marriage through the union of a man and woman.

Christians ignored God’s values with both candidates because they were more concerned with their FINANCES, SAFETY and PERSONAL BIASES. When God promised to work all things out for our good if we put our faith and trust in Him.

Think about it. Jesus would be considered weak according to American culture and American standards.

If Jesus were a candidate in this election…would you have voted for Him?

Remember this. Jesus is ALWAYS on the ballot.

Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
