Daily Bible Study with Purpose

Psalm 37:32-33 The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, intent on putting them to death; 33, but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

🔴 DON’T FRET THE ELECTION

Why are you as a believer fretting about an election? Don’t you realize that things in this world are only temporary? Yes! It is our civic duty to vote, and we should take this right to vote in all elections as a privilege and with gratitude for those who fought, bleed, and died for us to be able to vote.
 

God is the ultimate authority!

 
Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.
 

Since humans decided that they wanted judges, then kings, instead of God, no one has or will be satisfied with the outcome. Some leaders follow God, while others have sought to do evil. The only true and just ruler is God. Because this world is not the eternal home for believers, we are settling for less than the best regardless of who leads here on earth.

Once you have voted, trust God’s control for the results and His plan to live your best life for Him. God knows your heart, desires, and needs, and He is quite capable of fulfilling them all.

 

Let’s pray: Lord help us to be still before you and to wait patiently for you; keep us from fretting when people succeed in their ways as they carry out their wicked schemes. Please help us refrain from anger and lead us from the wrath not to worry because it only leads to evil. Continue our hope in you, Lord, so that we will inherit the land and so that the enemy will not destroy us. Increase our faith and wisdom as we give our total control to you. We worship and praise you, Lord. Amen
