Like the lady who wrote this post, fruits of our labors…, I too have children and grandchildren, and I wonder what the future will be like for them. I also have hope, but I am sadden that so many of us have forgotten an important truth.

Psalm 127:1 New American Standard Bible

Unless the Lord builds a house,

They who build it labor in vain;

Unless the Lord guards a city,

The watchman stays awake in vain.

In all our works, especially in the operation of our government, we must seek His aid. Why is it that way? The universe is God’s Creation, and we are His creatures. He made his universe too big and wonderful for us. He also allows us a choice. We can turn to Him, or we can turn to Satan, who stalks us.

As Ephesians 6:10-20 reminds us, to choose Him we must engage in spiritual warfare. We must each turn to and call upon the Lord for our salvation.

And so it is we must pray for wisdom.

James 1:5 New American Standard Bible

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Tomorrow many good citizens of Virginia will vote for the Republican Party’s nominees for Governor, Lt Governor, and Attorney General. Let us pray that each of these citizens seeks our Lord’s guidance.
