Whichever way the Presidential election goes, a day will soon come when a winner is finally declared. On that day, emotions will run even higher than they are now, no matter who wins. Today, the wise will begin to prepare how they will express their faith to the world as a follower of Christ, and to many within the Church, who might feel angry, disillusioned, or forsaken.
While the result of an election does have societal consequences, in the end, Jesus will still reign as Lord of All, and His Kingdom will continue to advance until the end of time no matter what transpires in the affairs of any nation. The Lord has been this way before. We have not. He knows how to lead us forward if we allow Him to take our hand and show us the way.
We should not waste these days while the final votes are being tabulated. The daily adjustments we make during this time of preparation regarding our heart’s condition and our character’s content will help us overcome any undisciplined emotions and misconceptions we have picked up along the way.
If we can allow God to do this work of internal preparation, the weeks and months that may be required to finalize the vote and declare our next President will not have been wasted. With each passing day, our peace will increase, our integrity will be established, and our witness will be made healthy and God-honoring.
