How Do I Know Who to Vote For?

Your vote is important because when you vote, your ballot becomes your seed. By seeking the direction of the Lord and voting in faith, you are sowing toward God’s will coming to pass in our nation.

But how do you know who to vote for? How do you choose the right candidate? Start with your focus. Make sure it is on moral issues rather than on economic policies. When we understand that God - and not man - meets our needs (Philippians 4:19), it frees us to make decisions based solely on the direction of the Holy Spirit.

The decision can become more challenging when one or both candidates are not Christian. In those cases, prayerfully consider the platform of each party or candidate to determine which aligns most closely with biblical principles.

When you are faced with a voting decision, rest assured that the Lord knows the right candidate and He desires for you to know His will. The promise in the conclusion of the following prayer the Apostle Paul prayed for the church at Colosse can be yours as you seek wisdom how to vote in any election: “We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding” (Colossians 1:9).
