As early voting started this week, I’ve watched, listened and read much about both candidates. This is a most difficult year for our country. It’s a year when I think I’ve seen more fear in the Christian world than I have ever seen before. Fear from both sides!
When fear is so pungent that you can smell it in the air I always take a moment to recalibrate, to center on what I know. So, here are few things I know even when it seems “the sky is falling.” (Chicken Little reference for you old folks.)
I know that God rules the nations. He is seated on the throne and rules no matter who is ruling our country.
I know that God raises leaders and puts down leaders. They all rule with his permission.
I know, as scripture says, that God directs the hearts of the king and moves it wherever he wishes.
I know he can change the rulers. Look at Daniel 4 if you need a reminder of what God did with one of the worst kings of history.
I know that he watches over the times and his children. We are safe in his hands until the day we have finished our mission.
I know that my task of trusting him goes on no matter who rules my country.
When the election is over and we have a new President, a new leader of our country, whoever it is….God will still be on the throne and we can still trust him.
Rest in that.
