Now we are in it up to our eyeballs- the 2016 presidential race. The candidates have been chosen, and the fight is on. You may have a candidate you totally support. Or you may be undecided, unsure, frustrated, confused, even anxious. I want to remind you of something...
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your way straight." (Proverbs 3:5,6)
"The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it; the world and all who dwell in it." (Psalm 24:1)
"We know that in all things, God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
Never forget Who is in charge. Trust him. Pray. Then act as he leads.
The enemy would love to use politics or anything else to keep us from the unity God intends for us in Christ. We may differ. We may disagree strongly. But let's remember to keep our eyes on him, and love one another, no matter what.
