CONGRATULATIONS! WE DID IT! What did we do that deserves congratulations? Why we survived yet another “political season.”
One thing I enjoyed about no longer having TV is that I missed a lot of the political commercials this time around. There was plenty of information on line to allow a person to make an informed choice as to how to vote; but I didn’t have to listen to the 30 second to 2 minute mud-slinging of “PACs.”
Here’s the kicker...it is now Wednesday morning and, well, it is Wednesday morning. From the sound of some people, if their non-favored outcome or candidate was the winner yesterday the world would end. But the sun rose and it is a beautiful day (in Northwest Arkansas, anyway).
I exercised my right to vote yesterday. Did things go the way I voted? Not entirely. But, just after midnight on November 6, 2018, November 7, 2018 arrived!
Psalm 118:24 reads: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Just as the Lord made yesterday, He made today. Just as we looked with hopeful anticipation towards today yesterday, so we can look with hopeful anticipation to tomorrow today.
No matter who is going to Washington D.C. or Little Rock or to City Hall...God is the one in control. God is still sovereign (whether or not the politicians want to admit that or not).
So what happens now? Now we pray for those who were elected (see 1 Timothy 2:1-4). Whether you voted for them or not. Whether you agree with their political platform or not. We pray for them: that they govern wisely and as God would have them.
Then the political season starts all over again in six months!
