Today is the day that many have been anxiously anticipating (dreading?) for some time—Election Day 2020. Many voters exercised their right early this year. The rest are making the trek to the polls today to decide who will be our next president. The rhetoric has been especially heated this campaign. The nation seems to be equally divided between the two candidates. Many people on each side are deeply concerned about what will happen if the other side wins. Will the results be contested? Will there be violence? Will the nation plunge into a period of darkness such as we have not seen in some time? These questions, and others, have caused many people to become extremely anxious.
I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I do know a few things. I know that God will still be on his throne no matter who wins. I know that we Christians will have a lot of work to do no matter who wins. I know that we are still commanded to pray for our leaders no matter who wins. I know that believers are called upon to obey the government—unless asked to disobey God—no matter who wins. And I know that we Christians are still saved and living in his kingdom…no matter who wins!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”—John 16:33.
