On the Eve of an Election Day

“Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.”

prayforelectiondayndop2016I’m afraid that many are going into this Election Day with fear and trembling. Some are concerned that our nation may never recover from the results of the outcome. I’ve had to keep reminding myself that regardless of how this election turns out, our Sovereign God is still in the Heavens, and King Jesus is on His throne. The prophet Isaiah writes in chapter 40:

Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket,
And are counted as the small dust on the scales…

It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He brings the princes to nothing;
He makes the judges of the earth useless.

Scarcely shall they be planted,
Scarcely shall they be sown,
Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth,
When He will also blow on them,
And they will wither,
And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.

And with that I would like to share this article from Tim Challies, a Canadian citizen who has had to fight the temptation to fret and despair as he has witnessed what has taken place in Canada’s government. I hope this will help give some perspective:

Put Not Your Trust in Presidents
