“The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.” – Psalm 103:19
Today, many of us may relate to this feeling. “We don't like to lose.” It's discouraging. Disappointing. We feel defeated and wonder why it all didn't go our way. Or why others didn’t see things the way we did.
Many in our nation are celebrating the election results. And, many others are deeply troubled. Yet no matter which side of the Presidential race you’ve been on over these long months, this truth remains...every time we’re willing to take a stand for what we believe in, we still “Win.” And we can trust God with the results.
Certain voices and attitudes will lead you to believe that you somehow failed. That you can never make a difference. The enemy will seek to divide believers and stir up strife and hate. Don’t fall for that trap. We win when we do what God asks us to do. We win when we’re willing to live wisely. We win every
time we choose to obey His word to the very best of our ability. There’s great freedom there. Freedom from fear. Freedom from worry. Freedom from defeat. Freedom from anger and hate.
The sun still rose this morning. And nothing has taken God by surprise. Not ever. He’s still on the throne and Sovereign over all. He still has a plan and is at work on behalf of His people, “for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14
Our prayers matter. We can choose to move forward from here with grace. Choose to trust Him and believe that He is in control. Nothing is too difficult for Him.
