Many things have been said about this presidential election. There are some who revel, while others revolt. And the news is covering every angle of it all until it is thoroughly all “squeezed out,” and then some!
Frankly, I am tired of hearing and seeing it all. I have my hopes and concerns as does everyone, but I’m not going into all of them here. That would simply add fuel to a fire which needs to be put out.
As a Christian man I will share a couple of spiritual points with you for your consideration.
The Lord God, in whom we have placed all our hope for the future of heaven is also in control of the things on earth. We are privy to some of His plans and ways of thinking, primarily because He wants us to know them, as well as, emulate those things.
These are His righteous plans for how we are to live and get along with each other. He has schooled us on His word and will, His commands of life for His children, ever asking us to trust in Him and to lean on Him as we walk in the light of His guidance.
We hold hope not only in eternal life, but in the ways in which we may be employed by Him to be of service to others while we try to win souls for Christ. After all, this is the work we have been called to when we decided to obey the gospel.
However, it has also been revealed to us that there are some plans of God which are His alone, and for whatever reason we have no idea what they are, nor will we, at least for now.
But one thing is certain about the Lord God…He is always a God of love and mercy and goodness. This does not mean the path He has made will always be smooth, but it does mean that it will lead to some goodness or righteousness in His perfect mind. There is always a fully planned purpose for good in the workings of our God.
Therefore, let us put away our fears and accept that this country of America, no matter who is in charge, is ultimately in the hands of the Lord God Almighty, come what may. It is HIS plan which will be done, and despite what happens, good or ill, it comes from the perfect and righteous God of all.
Perhaps there are difficult times ahead for America. But we must trust in the fact that things will work according to the plans laid out by God. And as Christians, we should just learn to accept that fact.
In closing, and in view of these facts we have mentioned, we should be standing behind our leaders, praying that they do a more Godly job of leading us. Even when this seems unlikely to us, we pray for them anyway.
It doesn’t matter who is “in charge” in Washington. It doesn’t matter if we do or don’t like or trust Donald Trump as President. What does matter is that we trust in God who loves us and always has. His will is being done, and we must trust in that!
We must remember this as things unfold in our nation…
