I want you to take your calander out and go to November 9, 2016. It doesn’t matter if it is on your phone or a paper calander. I want you to write this on that date “God is still in control this morning.” Many people are going to be upset that morning. It does not matter which person wins the other side will be upset.
The great thing about whoever wins Jehovah will still reign supreme. I will try to use scripture to back this up.
1. “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” Romans 13:1
No matter who wins the election God has placed them there for a reason. We might not realize what is going on, but who are we to question God. All authority is given by God because He is the ultimate authority. We must accept the authority that is placed upon the person who receives the most votes.
2. “The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.” Proverbs 21:1
Whoever wins we must pray for that person. We must pray that they will listen to the guidance and leading of God and other godly people. God has the ability to change a king’s heart, soul, and mind.
3. “And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.” Zechariah 14:9
From the beginning God has been the only one and will be until the end of time. One day God will rule over His entire creation. We are given earthly rulers until this point. There are going to be many that we do not like. There are also going to be some that we do like. Not everyone will like the same leaders. This is ok.
As Americans we have been through many election cycles and each one gets nasty at the end. We know this is coming and many people expect it. Some people are even caught off guard and forget that elections get nasty. Let’s put all that aside and start focusing on important things.
