Currently there is much fear and panic over the current 2020 election not only in America but all over the world. Do you think God is panicking or do you believe He is truly in control. In order to have comfort and peace at a time like this then one must know who God really is. If your focused on the outward circumstances you will not see God in the midst of it. God knows exactly what is happening and who is doing what. So the more appropriate question would be is Jesus your Lord and ruler above all? Or is your dependency upon the ruler of this world?
Psalm 5:1-12 KJV 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. 2 Attend to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I pray. 3 In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice; at daybreak I lay my plea before You and wait in expectation. 4 For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; no evil can dwell with You. 5 The boastful cannot stand in Your presence; You hate all workers of iniquity. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; the LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit.
7 But I will enter Your house by the abundance of Your loving devotion; in reverence I will bow down toward Your holy temple. 8 Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make straight Your way before me. 9 For not a word they speak can be trusted; destruction lies within them. Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.
10 Declare them guilty, O God; let them fall by their own devices. Drive them out for their many transgressions, for they have rebelled against You. 11 But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever shout for joy. May You shelter them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. 12 For surely You, O LORD, bless the righteous; You surround them with the shield of Your favor.
We are witnessing open deception. In Psalm 5:6, God tells us He destroys those who lie. Those who lie do not know when to stop which causes them to fall by their own devices, vs.10. Those who rule the world were taken by surprise in 2016 and again in 2020 because of their deep self deception. They thought they had a plan but they are not the only ones.
Do you focus on the plan of evil or do you recognize the plan of God? The bible will tell us the difference.
Proverbs 28:2-26 tell us in detail the difference between a godly leader and an ungodly leader. The godly leader will bless the people and the evil leader will bring curses upon the people.
At this moment we do not know the outcome of America. But we know the One who does. So what does that mean in practical terms? Here are three things to keep in front of us.
Know That God Is Your God
Psalm 66:7 KJV He rules by His might forever; His eyes keep watch on the nations;Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
God in His Sovereignty sees every move that takes place. He is not pacing back and forth upset because He did not see this coming. God has a plan and He will work His plan until all of it comes to fruition.
Put Your Trust In The Lord
Isaiah 12:2 KJV Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Isaiah 26:3 KJV Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 41:10 KJV Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
When difficult times come we must choose to keep our eyes on the Lord. We do this through prayer, reading scripture, and aligning our thoughts with God’s word.
Submit Your Will To His Will
Deuteronomy 30:15 KJV See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
John 5:24 KJV Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
God has set before each of us life or death. This is talking about eternal life and eternal death. With an eternal perspective you will pray to the One who can truly help you. You will put your trust in the Lord knowing He will hold you and never leave you or forsake you. In Christ our treasures are in heaven not on this earth.
1 John 2:15 KJV Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Christians who have the love of the Father in them are standing for godly values which has brought them under attack in America now. But under Biden the persecution will escalate. We will turn into China, Venezuela, North Korea, and all the other Communist nations. This has already begun as we all watched the tolerated riots and destruction that did and are taking place. And yet churches that are not allowed to assemble and will be fined if they do. More is coming and we pray you do not take persecution lightly.
Jesus is coming soon. The bible tells us to be aware and have discernment. We pray you will come to know Jesus through a personal relationship before time runs out.
Matthew 11:28 KJV Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
