My prayer last night, before it was announced that Donald Trump won the Presidency, was that God’s will would be done and that Christians would act like Christians today. What I mean is that regardless of whether your candidate won or not you would be the voice of “the peace that passes all understanding” (Philippians 4:7). If your candidate won don’t laud it over people and debate why Trump is the best. If your candidate lost don’t be bitter and confrontational.
My prayer remains the same this morning: if you are a Christian than your life has changed and today is the perfect opportunity to calmly show non-Christians why your hope rests in your Savior Jesus Christ. The reason I titled this Devotional “Your Results From the 2016 Presidential Election” is because you need to submit your reactions today to the Lord. Whether someone is complaining or applauding don’t join in – be the voice of godly reason. Can your election results be to lead someone to Jesus? With God’s power, YES!
“The earth is the LORD’s and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein” (Proverbs 24:1).
For more on the Election Series I’ve written for the last year you can go to the last Devotional titled “Such a Time as This.” It has links to the other Devotionals. God bless!
