Subject: God’s Sovereignty

As I watched television the night of the presidential election, I was optimistic. Initially, as the States declared their choices, I was somewhat hopeful that the candidate whose stand was closer to biblical teachings was going to claim victory. But as each of us is aware, victory was elusive, and by midnight the candidate who opposed many of God’s teachings, was once again America’s Commander and Chief. With complete honesty, I felt sad, even a bit anxious. What was going to happen to my country; the great country that was created on biblical tenets?

As I retired to bed that night I had to lecture myself for my brief ‘pity party’. Fully aware that God is cognizant of everything that happens, why was I alarmed? Knowing that His Holy Word not only speaks of, but warns of earth’s worsening conditions, why did I fret? (Prophecy) Hadn't I placed my faith and trust in the One who knows the very number of hairs on my head (Luke 12:7), and every thought buried deep within my heart (Psalm 139:1-3)?

Suddenly clam was all about me as I reminded myself that God, who loved me so much that He gave His only begotten Son for my sins… “…while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8), is, and always has been, at the helm of civilization, directing its path according to His divine will! With that reality, sleep came quickly! “God is our refuse and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)

Those who awoke the morning after the election and became disheartened and alarmed over the election’s results can take comfort in knowing that God was fully aware of which candidate would win. As America morphs into a godless nation, God sees! As the tension in the Middle East intensifies, God is aware! As violence spreads across the globe, God is watching! As America’s morality is collapsing, God knows! “...Let not your hearts be troubled neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:17b)

As earthquakes and hurricanes increase in number and magnitude, as apostasy infiltrates churches, and Relativism (belief that little, if any, difference exists between right and wrong) feeds man’s ego, we see the foreshadowing of the dark, cataclysmic days of the Tribulation Period (seven continuous years of dire catastrophes and misery). Christians need not fear. The Great Creator who spoke into existence the spectacular universe (Genesis 1:1-20), the magnificent animal kingdom (Genesis 1:20-25), and formed man in His very own image (Genesis 1:26-27) is in control!

As time ticks down toward the Second Coming of Christ (Matthew 24:26; 25:31, 32), the Rapture (I Thessalonians 4:13-18) must first take place, followed by the Tribulation Period (Book of Revelation). As we believers eagerly await the Rapture, we will watch as conditions increasingly become more difficult, more wicked. (II Timothy 3:1-7), but we can find comfort in knowing that God is in complete control!

So does it matter who claimed the presidency? Absolutely not! God is in control! Should we fret over the economy, taxes, insurance? No! Does it matter if we face increasingly difficult and ungodly times? No! Should we worry about what Christians may face? No! God is in control! Should we be sleepless about finances, job/career, health, etc. No, for we have only to turn to the One who can ease our hearts, calm our nerves and steady our walk. “Humble yourselves…under the mighty hand of God…casting all your care (anxiety) upon Him, for he careth for you.” (I Peter 5:6,7)

If, however, we are without Jesus Christ, we should be awash with worry! Oh, not about the state of our nation, but the state of our soul! Just as we had an individual choice as to whom to vote for on Election Day, we have a choice as to our eternity…Heaven or Hell! Actually, if we don’t call upon Jesus, we’ve already made our choice, a choice with damning and everlasting results. “And these (unbelievers) shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous (believers) into life eternal.” (Matthew 25:46)

Place your trust in the One who has absolute control…Jesus Christ. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
