This morning I was reading the Scriptures (2 Chronicles 6:5-6) and came across a marginal note in the Amplified Version. The context is Solomon’s dedication of the temple and a rehearsal of history for God’s people.
The note reads:
“Saul was originally the people’s choice, but not God’s choice. The Bible nowhere teaches that the “voice of the people is the voice of God.” But it does teach that when people make demands of God that are not in harmony with His will, He may grant them to their sorrow, and send “leanness into their souls.” (Psalm 106:15)
This appears to be a principle of caution applicable to the current political scene in the US. If this be so, weep for our grandchildren.
Our hope is for an interruption in the personal lives of the candidates that the Lord uses to bring them to an authentic confrontation with the Lord Jesus Christ, transformationally redeems them and radically alters their leadership.
