I’ve voted. I’ve done what I can as an American to exercise the right to express my voice. But no matter what the outcome, who is the President tomorrow morning, and no matter what the future holds….my future rests in God and His promises.
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2
You would have to live in a very dark, deep cave with amazing soundproofing, unlimited supply of food and water, not to know that there is a presidential election occuring in the United States. While I always try to vote conscientiously, I am not an overly political person who enjoys engaging in political debate. However, I just wanted to share a few words from the wisest of all Counsel this morning.
Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord. You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:6-8)
Yes, I will vote for the candidate who I believe will help this country be the strongest and healthiest. Yes, I will pray for the leaders, whoever they may be. But my trust will stay in God above, the maker of heaven and earth. Blessings, Lisa
