This election season, we have an incredible opportunity to live out our faith by standing as people full of hope and joy in a world gone crazy in panic and despair. And here's why:
1) GOD IS SOVEREIGN - God is in control- not just when things are easy, not just when life is predictable, and certainly not just when your political candidate wins the election. God is good and He is faithful. His love remains steadfast - even in a culture that changes with each new political personality
2) GOD HAS FINAL AUTHORITY - Open any history book to see nations rise and fall. Leaders will come and go, but the Lord is forever. God's authority is never threatened by our political situation. God's authority is unshakable, no matter the political outcome. How can we despair when God has the final say?
3) THE END OF THE STORY IS ALREADY WRITTEN - For followers of Jesus, we know how the story ends. As Paul says in Philippians 2:9-11 "...at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord" The end has been written. And for believers, that should provide lasting confidence far greater than any political party or government could offer.
"We wait in hope for the Lord: He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you"
