Fear not, for God is with you! That sometimes is easier to say that it is to do, and with all of the uncertainty during this last few months, fear can take hold fast. The election that we have been building up to for well over a year now is fastly approaching, and I have been asked why I am so calm about it lately, and I have come to 2 conclusions:
1. God is on the throne no matter who is in the White House.
2. I get to play a part in what God does, but what I do will not veto God's plan.
You see, God doesn't need us to accomplish His will, we GET to be a part of it! I believe that as believers we are called to be salt and light, and it is hard to be salt and light if we aren't active in the world around us. I believe we should vote. I don't believe that is as much about us choosing the next leaders as it is about being a part of the process and giving God the glory for whatever, or whoever, He decides on. The Bible tells us not to be decieved, because God is not mocked. What a man sows, he also reaps. Our nation has sown some seed that is going to reap consequences, and those of us who know the Lord know what is coming.
So be a part in what is coming, but FEAR NOT! The Lord knows what is coming even when we do not, and there is nothing He can't handle!
