According to the latest national poll of likely voters in the Republican primary by Rasmussen, Mike Huckabee has pulled ahead of Rudy Giuliani. The race is still very close, with 20% indicating support for Huckabee and 17% supporting Giuliani. And in the state of Arkansas, the poll found that Huckabee would beat Hillary Clinton.
The Bible teaches us that the Lord directs the hearts of kings. In Proverbs 21, we find that:
1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD;
he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
2 All a man’s ways seem right to him,
but the LORD weighs the heart.
3 To do what is right and just
is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
Our country is unique in that we don’t have kings. We have elected officials (not unlike the Judges who were once elected by the tribes of Israel!). My prayer is that on both sides of the political canvas there will be a mighty awakening…that those who serve our country, and those who elect them, will decide to “do what is right and just.” No more muggings along park bike trails. No more sneaking money in a bill to appease campaign donors or special interest groups. Just fair and honest debate, and a passion in our American hearts to “do what is right and just.”
If you make a mistake, own it, and learn from it. If you’re arrested for something that you really did do, take responsibility. Take your consequences, and learn from them. If you are an elected official or a voter, remember that the LORD weighs your heart.
I support Mike Huckabee because he acknowledges that the LORD directs his heart like a waterway. His faith in God drives him. He is a leader who has the heart of a servant.
