If you live in the western world and have access to any media at all, you’ll know that tomorrow is a day that could, and probably will, change the world. As the United States heads into their presidential election, the rest of the world holds it’s breath.
There is a chance that, under the new administration, Christians will be persecuted and churches will be undermined by the very government they voted for.
I’m not here to tell you who I believe should be the next president of the United States or who you should vote for if you’re American. What I want to tell you today is to hold on.
…let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who is every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:14b-16 (ESV)
No matter what happens tomorrow, I believe that we will all be in a time of need. But hold on, we have been promised grace and mercy to help us in that time!
Today, pray. Pray for the American elections that God would have is hand on both the delegates and voters alike. That the citizens of the United States would see reason and go to the voting booths with eyes wide open. Pray that people would not only vote, but vote being educated on whom they cast their ballots for. Above all, pray that God be glorified in a nation that has chosen to reject Him.
