did your guy win?

Oh, my…..what an election night it was!!  But here we are….the day after…

Did your guy win?  Whether your guy won or not, we are still commanded to obey our government.

Romans 13:1-2, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities.  For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.  Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.”

The speed limit applies to believers and non-believers alike!  Taxes have to be paid by both parties!  We are to be in submission to our government, as Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Luke 20:25). 

So…now we pray.  No matter who is elected….we pray.  We plead for our country.  We pray for our president, those who counsel him, the Senate and the House.

The righteous Judge of all the earth – the TRUE SUPREME COURT – says, “Go make disciples of all the nations.” In other words, talk about Jesus.  HE is the SUPREME JUDGE of all the earth, and as christians, we belong to Him.

So, pray.  Don’t worry and don’t fear.  God has equipped us to handle life as it comes, but if you spend our day worrying about tomorrow, you will get tired and frustrated.  He wants us to be free from all anxiety and stress.  Don’t let your interests be divided between Him and the things in this world!  It’s easy to say we trust the Lord, but He wants to see the “fruit” of it!  Refuse to worry!

So, pray. 

Be humble before the King of Kings.

Maybe your guy won….maybe he didn’t.  Either way…….pray.
