God is a loving God– not only that but He is love. But it’s not the whole picture. To have a full understanding of God’s nature, we need to understand both the sternness and the kindness of God. To have a right relationship with God, we need to love Him and fear Him.There’s a passage that should be a real reality check for us.

We need to ask ourselves, do we want what we want, or are we seeking after what God wants? “Seek the Lord while He may still be found” (Isaiah 55:6).
So when you pray about the elections, do not just pray for who gets into office. Pray for the heart of our nation, that we have a heart after God’s own heart. Pray that His will be done in this nation.
Who I vote for or even if I vote has nothing to do with whether I am a born again Christian. “But Pastor, aren’t you proud to be an American?” I am! Nevertheless, not nearly as proud as I am to be a Citizen of Heaven.
