Well, it's the big day...election day!
Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about who I voted for (although you could probably figure that out), who you should vote for, or anything like that.
So no matter what side you are on you might be afraid what the future holds. Even if you are reading this from outside of the U.S., you are probably afraid of something right now. However, I'm going to challenge you to NOT be afraid. That may be hard, but then again, it shouldn't be. Yes, this is a huge day for America, no doubt, but we have to remember that God knows what is going to happen. He has it under control and He has a purpose for everything, no matter who becomes our president. We should not put hope into man, but we should put our hope into God. He is the only one who can really give us hope. Now I believe that He can bring hope through a person, but ultimately He is our one, true hope. Humans mess up, but God doesn't. Now I'm not saying, don't worry about voting.
As citizens, we should vote and we should pray for God's will to be done.
So no matter who wins, God tells us to "Fear not, for I am with you...(Isaiah 41:10)". Psalm 112:7 (NLT) says, "They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them." So don't fear, but be confident in God's promises.
In Him we find confidence.
Check this video out! Mike, the lead singer from Tenth Avenue North talks about fear. Yep, another Tenth Avenue North video. What can I say, I love them!
This is the song that goes with it...
So fear not, be confident that God is strong enough to save!
The scripture for the read-your-Bible-in-a-year plan is Luke 21-22.
