Super Tuesday?

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday. The day where we (In Texas and Arkansas and 9 other states) are to go vote in the presidential primaries. The social media world is on fire with people pushing one candidate or another with all sorts of information on why “real christians” should or shouldn’t vote for one person or another.  I was reading today on ChristianToday.com and saw a quote that read:

“Evangelicals are set to play a deciding role for Republicans in the Super Tuesday states, according to Pew research.”

Now, I know not all evangelicals are Republicans and I am in no way going to tell you who you should vote for; but i will say this- Pray. Yes, pray and seek God on what YOU should do and then go vote.  Remember Paul’s encouraging words…

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-7 

Evangelicals will play a role in the election by either voting or staying home. I believe we should vote and have a voice. I also read a survey that stated:

“in recent elections, about 2 of every 5 of self-professed Christians took that right for granted and did not vote. About 1 in 5 self-professed, eligible Christians are not even registered to vote.”

Tomorrow is the day, so pray today!

Is there anything God can’t do? Yes!

Is there anything God can’t do? Yes! Ok, so before you get angry – take a breathe and read on! I once was asked “since with God nothing is impossible let me ask you a question. Can God make a rock so big He can’t pick it up?” Of course we encounter questions that get us to thinking and this morning I was looking through my notes and was reminded of 10 things God can’t do along with scripture to back it up.
So on this rainy Monday I thought I would share it with you…..

10 Things God Can’t Do

  1. God can’t get tired.
    Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.
    —Isaiah 40:28
  2. God can’t take on a job he can’t handle.
    Ah, Lord God! Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for you.
    —Jeremiah 32:17
  3. God can’t be unholy.
    And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
    —Isaiah 6:3
  4. God can’t be prejudiced.
    In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears him and works righteousness is accepted by him.
    —Acts 10:34-35
  5. God can’t break a promise.
    My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.
    —Psalm 89:34
  6. God can’t remember sins he’s chosen to forget.
    I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake; and I will not remember your sins.
    —Isaiah 43:25
  7. God can’t make a loser.
    Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ.
    —2 Corinthians 2:14
  8. God can’t abandon you.
    Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, he is the one who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
    —Deuteronomy 31:6
  9. God can’t stop thinking about you.
    How precious also are your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with you.
    —Psalm 139:17-18
  10. God can’t stop loving you.
    Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
    —Jeremiah 31:3

Aren’t you glad God can’t do those things?
