We’re Electing a President, not a Savior and Sovereign

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” Ps. 46:10

He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. Daniel 2:21

Lord Jesus, Americans will elect a president tomorrow—a great honor, prayerful matter, and big deal. So, keep us perpetually aware of the empty tomb of Easter, the warm-seated throne of heaven, and the eternally-settled purposes of heaven. Indeed, a president is being elected; not a Savior and Sovereign.

Because you are in control, we shouldn’t be in knots. Worship, not worry, is the order of the day. You know what will best serve the purposes of the Great Commission in the USA; and in Uganda, the Sudan, Switzerland, Israel, Russia, and China. You will be (not, might be) exalted among the nations—all of them.

We don’t know heaven’s reasons for choosing to seat certain kings and remove others (Dan. 2:21). That’s “above our pay grade.” But we do know our Father has left nothing to chance, but all things to you (Psalm 2:8).

In all of our seeking, we intend to seek first your kingdom and the righteousness of your kingdom—by the way we vote, trust, and love. So very Amen we pray, in your triumphant and loving name.
