America has come yet again to a place where we find ourselves divided! Democrats and many, many Republicans voted for Secretary Hillary Clinton, plus she got the popular vote — close to a million more people voted for her — yet we have elected Donald Trump, who earned the electoral vote.
The overwhelming majority of us Democrats are moving on and accepting — we have no other choice in a democracy. Yet we are witnessing protest marches in cities all across America.
Where DO we go from here? Christians, we need not worry one second. God is in charge! He chose Saul…
The conversion of Paul the Apostle was an event in the life of Paul that led him to cease persecuting Christians and to become a follower of Jesus. His name was changed from Saul to Paul. God will chose anyone for His purpose.
With this story in mind of how Saul became Paul, let us come together and pray for President-elect Donald Trump. God IS still in the miracle-working business!
Scripture reminds us, in the book of Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
In Jeremiah 29:11, it says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” This is an extremely encouraging verse! The Heavenly Father knew the number of hairs on your head, before you entered your mother’s womb, therefore, how can He not know the plans He has for us. All we need to do is trust in Him, not in man. Man will disappoint you every time!
My final scripture is Proverbs 27:1, which says, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.” To me, this means that neither Donald Trump nor his supporters can predict what the future holds. Only God knows how this whole thing will turn out. His ways are not our ways! When it looks like something was meant for evil, God can turn right around and turn that very thing for our good!
Christians, please don’t cry, and do not worry about what the future holds. Get back on track and keep doing what God sent you here to this earth to do. You are on a mission — you would not be here if you did not have a purpose!
Use your homeless state to discover why people become homeless, then help others. Use your broken marriage to learn how to maintain a marriage without it falling apart; turn that domestic violence into a testimony which can help other men and women to get out safely. That’s what this election is really all about.
Either President-elect Trump will help us or not, it remains to be seen. He could turn out to help the entire country in a positive and favorable manner, or he could be in quicksand, and keep sinking deeper and deeper into a dark place! God holds the future!
