He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. – Psalm 9:8
There are times when the political tension can be cut with a knife. I see this election cycle as one of choosing the lesser of two evils. That’s why I want to focus on God… because HE reigns with righteousness and judges with equity. Once His children back away from all the distractions of this election cycle and open God’s Word… that’s when we can say with confidence, NO MATTER WHO IS ELECTED PRESIDENT, JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
The Psalms have been a source of wisdom and comfort to me. Even though this election is pivotal to America, in my opinion, God’s Word has given me assurance that no matter what happens, it will be alright because our God is in control – and He will not be mocked. Those who are evil and wrongdoers will be brought to justice in the end. The wheat will be separated from the chaff and God will have the last word.
I pray that God will work in the midst of Americans during this time. Only God is able to cut through the babble in our country and touch human hearts, minds and spirits. We need to learn what He wants for us now more than ever. So many have completely rejected His Holy Word. Through ministries we pray that some will find their way back. We trust God for the increase because we know that His Word will not return to Him void. We plant seeds… that’s all we do.
I love this song – and to tell the truth, I sing it with Heather as I’m driving in my little car – windows down and sunroof open – “We’ve all been lost and we’ve all been hurt, where our hope is thin and our faith don’t work, but nothing lasts forever, the only thing that matters is God is still God and He holds it together, so hang on now.”
Thank you, Heather – I will hang on! Today’s reminder is this… God is still God. He will judge as only He can. No matter who becomes the next President in the United States, God is still God and my hope and trust is in Him alone. 🙂
