When you watch the Republican candidates for President, the last thing that probably comes to your mind is God. But that is exactly what comes to my mind. And it reminds me what a wonderful, miraculous God we serve!
I have watched candidates from the bottom rise to the top, and those on top fall to the bottom. Dr. Ben Carson is one of those candidates. A man who came to the public’s eye from a politically incorrect speech he gave at the National Prayer Day breakfast. And since then he has continually risen in popularity with the American people.
Now, the one thing that can never, ever be changed is the “will of God.” This country was established to be the New Jerusalem; a Christian country to lead the way for the rest of the world. We may have jumped the tracks from time to time, but God will put things back according to His will and the petition of His faithful servants! I believe we are witnessing the will of God right now, with the Republican candidates and Dr. Carson!
The bible gives us many examples of the will of God. The one example which I believe runs parallel to what is happening in the United States is King David. A shepherd boy who became a mighty King. If that were all there was to King David, it would be enough for most people. But no, this King provided the blood lineage for our savior Jesus Christ! And for our salvation.
King David was a boy whose upbringing was only to become an overseer of sheep and farming. He was not sent to scholarly schools, or groomed in etiquette for royalty, or even taught the skill of negotiation for foreign relations. No he was taught to herd sheep, but deep inside David beat a heart that resembled God’s heart. And for God that was enough.
Now, I bet you are wondering how Dr. Ben Carson, a Republican presidential candidate comes to compare with King David. Well, Dr. Ben Carson was raised by a very poor, single mother. And in that environment, most people would expect him to become a laborer or maybe someone who laid back to only collect welfare.
No, his mother taught her sons values from the bible, reading it to them night and day. A woman who worked hard to overcome her situation and to show her sons they could too. By keeping God the center focus of their family, God blessed them. And little boy Ben Carson, became surgeon Dr. Ben Carson. A man who has kept God at the center of his life. And maybe he too, has a heart which beats the same as God’s heart.
Dr. Carson has risen from the bottom of the Presidential candidates to the top three. Quietly, purposefully, and with the light of God leading the way. So now you see that the will of God can not be stopped or detained. We have cried out for revival and restoration of our country. And I believe God has heard our cries and is answering our prayers!
So the next time your watch the candidates, listen carefully to what each one is saying and ask God to give you a discerning ear. Can you see the change that is coming to America through the will of God? I can! And I can hardly wait!
God Bless You!
