Peace in the Presidency

The news and social media has been saturated with talk of the election. There has been truth shared as well as a lot of opinions.

I don’t think I am the only one who would admit that the choices don’t seem to be the best. In fact, people seem to be in uproar about the options. So much so that it isn’t a rare occasion to see arguments on facebook about the pros and cons to the candidates. People are extremely passionate and extremely opinionated.

Myself? I feel at peace. There is no need to worry. There is no need to be frazzled. Are you wondering how I can be at peace in the middle of chaos? Because my hope is rooted in the truth of God’s Word. God is very much still on the throne. It doesn’t matter who gets elected as president because God is sovereign over it all. You see, when we put our hope in this world, other people, the election, or the president, then we will be left dissapointed. But, when we put our hope in God, nothing can rattle us, not even an election with a president that we don’t like.

I am not here to offer advice on who to vote for, but what if we all, including me, spent more time praying and less time arguing? More time praying and less time worrying? More time praying and less time complaining?

Remember you can be at peace in the middle of a chaotic election. While it is important to educate yourself and pray and I hope you do both, don’t let this election rattle your faith. Don’t let what is going on distract you from the truth. At the end of the day, nothing, absolutely nothing can change the fact that God is in control. Stop spending so much time focusing on the election and start spending more time focusing on him!

Peace in the Presidency
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace” 1 Corinthians 16:33

    This is SO ME right now. Each night I pray to God for guidance and thank God for being in control. I don’t know what will come of this election but I have to keep the faith that God will provide the answers.

    Very true. I think often of the song that says “My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness, I dare not trust the sweetest frain, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.” Another part says, “When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay. On Christ the Solid Rock, I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.” God is our only hope. Our hope is not built on a man or a government or anything in this life. We must “look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith”. He is with us still, and He has promised to be with us until the end. And, as you said, HE is, and always will be, in control. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee…” Isaiah 26:3

    Thats awesome that you are at peace. I just keep scrolling on fb when theres election stuff why? because people who say they are Christians are the ones complaining. well then think before you vote. Also as believers we shouldn’t worry like you said we have a higher hope.

    “More time praying and less time arguing”…yes, yes, yes!!! Arguing does nothing but increase the problem and the tension. Love this stance in the election.

    I shared this recently…there has never been a President elected that God didn’t know first. I will vote for Jesus and His peace!

    Caroline,
    Well said.

    There’s a balance that needs to be struck. We have a responsibility to observe fulfill our responsibilities and vote, but the Lord still sits on His throne.

    Does it matter who ends up being president? Is it important? Yes. But does it negatively affect God’s Kingdom or prevent the work He wants done? No.

    I’m so glad God is in control. I’m also tired of hearing people be mean over this election and I’m kind of excited that it will soon be over. =) I think now is such a good opportunity for us Christians to show that world that in Christ we have His peace. It doesn’t depend on who is in office but on Christ alone. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, friend.

    Choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil. It had been rumored that one of our prophets said when we choose not of the lesser of two evils, but choose the most righteous and we will be blessed as a nation. Yes I do agree with you, we need to choose God. I like you am at peace, as long as we choose righteousness over evil. 🙂
