I think it’s safe to say that nobody saw this.
I know I didn’t.
Last night was a historic event. I’ve heard people liken it to the Silent Majority that happened when Nixon ran. I’ve heard people compare it to Reagan’s election. I’ve heard people jump and scream and cheer with happiness, and I’ve seen people weep and unable to form emotions because they’re just too shocked.
I didn’t like either of these candidates, but I voted for one. Everybody who knew how ridiculous voting third party is voted for one.
And now we’re gonna move on.
This isn’t the end, guys. Regardless of who you voted for (or didn’t vote for), this is what happened and these are the results and, as surprised as I am to say it, Trump will be our next president.
But guess what? It doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t matter because the American people have more say over what happens here – and how the culture changes – than basically anyone in the political realm.
And God is still on the throne.
Regardless of whatever dystopian novel prologue we may be living in, God is still on the throne and His will is going to be done and we can trust Him, praise God.
Now take a deep breath, pray for peace, and keep moving forward.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6-7)
Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
For the LORD will not abandon His people,
Nor will He forsake His inheritance. …
When my anxious thoughts multiply within me,
Your consolations delight my soul. …
But the LORD has been my stronghold,
And my God the rock of my refuge. (Ps. 94:14, 19, 22)
