There is an election coming up, you are probably aware of this fact, and as much as I try to avoid politics in church settings (I find it to be highly divisive for a church) it's almost impossible to avoid this year. This is the most divisive election cycle I can ever remember and even people older than me agree that our nation seems particularly divided by politics right now.
Between the BLM movement, a world-wide pandemic and disagreements over things like mask mandates and shut downs...we can all agree that 2020 has been a tough year for us all.
And soon we will have an answer to who will be our president for the next four years. Some will be happy because their candidate won. Some will be sad or mad because their candidate lost. Many will be worried about the direction of our country. And while I do have my own opinions about the best way forward politically, we need to remember that our ultimate hope is not in a certain candidate or party or platform; but in God.
Psalm 20:7 says "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God."
No matter who wins this election or any election, we know that God is still on the throne. No matter what political party may hold power, we know that God is still on the throne. No matter what law is passed that we agree with or disagree with, we know that God is still on the throne.
My hope is in the Lord and His Kingdom which will never end.
