This morning, I see a lot of my friends on social media upset about the election, worried about what will happen, or uncertain in the future. If you are a Christian, I hope these Scripture verses will provide comfort to you:
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. ~Romans 13 v. 1
God has given us Donald Trump, just as He gave Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, etc. He used those in the United States of America to vote for these men.
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings (or Presidents); he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. ~Daniel 2 v. 21
God is sovereign; He is in control of all things. My prayer is that God would give Donald Trump and his advisers wisdom.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. ~Psalm 20 v. 7
We are ultimately put our trust in God. Yes, participate in voting for Presidents, Governors, Senators, Mayors, etc., but regardless of the outcome, put your trust in God. He works in events for His glory, though we may not understand His reasons. God uses sinful people to bring about his plans. The world should not look to man (or woman) to save us, instead we should be looking to Jesus Christ. We should be placing our trust on Him. He alone can save us.
What are your thoughts on this election?
