Tuesday Truth: Election Day


Election Day.

Today will be a big day in history.

A lot is riding on this presidential election, and the outcome of one candidate verses another will look quite different.

During a time when there is a lot of anxiousness, tension, worry, and fear in the air, what better to do than remind ourselves of God’s truth?

This passage in Psalms is a beautiful reminder of God’s sovereignty, and I think it’s particularly applicable to our country today:

“Let all the earth fear the Lord;
let all the people of the world revere him.
For he spoke, and it came to be;
he commanded, and it stood firm.

10 The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
    the purposes of his heart through all generations.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.

16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
    on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.

20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.”

Psalm 33:8-22

When you choose to follow Christ, you know how the story of life ends. How love conquers evil and good wins.

You can walk in the weightless freedom of the lack of worry; for God tells us there is simply no point in it. For He is in control of all things. And we place our trust and our hope in Him. He is our one true Deliverer.

Father, may Your will be done. May this country be one that fears your name and loves you with unfailing love. May You, Lord, be America’s God.

Please vote today friends. Let’s take a stand for truth.
