I Feel Weird
Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States of America. How does that make you feel? One of my colleagues approached me today and told me she feels weird. When I asked her what she meant by weird, she said, “He won! I can’t believe it. He thought he was going to lose. She thought she was going to win yet he won by a landslide. I feel weird. How do you feel?” I don’t feel weird, sad, nervous or fearful. Actually, I feel fine however, the response from Christians to the election is what has me feeling some kind of way. We act as if we have no hope when the reality is, we are the hope the world needs.
A Perfect Plan In Place
There’s no reason to feel weird, sad, nervous or fearful or proclaim this to be one of the worst days in America. I’m excited to see what God can and will do through this flawed human being he raised up to be our President. Psalm 75:7 says, “It is God alone who judges; he decides who will rise and who will fall. God was not surprised when Donald Trump became our President. He knew all about it before it happened and he has a perfect plan in place.
Act Like We Know
We, Christians, need to stop acting like a bunch of wimps. If we believe Jesus is still on the throne, if we believe he’s in control and all of the other religious jargon we Tweet, it’s time for us to act like it. This is a great opportunity for us to be messengers of hope to those who feel lost, weird and afraid because guess what, God did not give us a Spirit of fear. He gave us a Spirt of love, power, and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7. What good are we if we’re walking around feeling lost and hopeless like everyone else? How effective can we be? It’s time to get it together Christian people and act like we know.
If We Trust God, We Trust God
When I woke up this morning, the promises of God were bubbling over in me. Here’s the bottom line, if we believe the Bible, we believe the Bible. If we trust God, we trust God. Psalm 89:34 reminds us that his promises are sure; “No, I will not take back one word of what I said” and 2 Corinthians 1:20 follows up with; “For all the promises of God in him are yes and in Him, Amen to the glory of God through us.” Every promise in Gods word still stands no matter what.
I Know Who Holds The Future
Today I prayed for Donald Trump. Did you? Why not? I specifically asked God to give him wisdom and surround him with godly counsel. Praying for those who rule over us is a Biblical command in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, “The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.” Listen, while I don’t know what the future holds, I know beyond the shadow of the doubt who holds the future. Do you?
What say you? How are you feeling after the election?
