Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, "How long are you going to waiver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him~ But if Baal is God, then follow him!" But the people were completely silent. (1 Kings 18:21)
We are approaching another general election on November 6, 2012. Citizens will have the opportunity to go to the polls and make a choice. In 2008 sixty-four percent of the populace turned out to vote. What will take place in 2012?
During Elijah's reign as prophet in Israel, God decided it was time for the people to make a choice. The Almighty was not willing to accept the role of default deity. No false god or idol dare take his rightful place. Elijah asked them, "How long will you waiver between two opinions?"
You and I are faced with the same choice every day of our lives. Just as in the case of the Israelites, God has given us adequate proof of his right to rule our lives. Each day we must choose to affirm his leadership.
What choice will you make today? How will you vote?
