This may come as a surprise to some, but God is not affiliated with any specific political party. However, people try to associate God to a political party to condone their own specific beliefs.
Our God is omnipotent and much too busy to play the petty mind games which man would want to involve Him. His word, teachings and messages are for all to glean insight. God will allow, direct and use special circumstances, catastrophic events or specific behaviors of individuals to show us the heart of people, organizations, businesses and administrations that surround us. In the infamous words of the poet Maya Angelou, “When people show you who they are, believe them.” I may not always be happy with the actions of some public figures, but I’m always thankful when God reveals their heart through their actions or words spoken. That lets me know who can be trusted to have my back. Then I can show my support through voting.
There have been natural disasters, insurrections, protests for social justice and other political causes. During each of these events, God has revealed the heart of those there to assist, support, and to show genuine care for those hurting, suffering and in need. Then there are others who you would expect or wish were there, and were not.
God gives us all wisdom to make the right decisions and to guide our paths. Shame on us if we disregard the revelations He has given us.
