24 Election Day Meditations

I'm thankful to be an American; I'm more thankful to be a sinner saved by grace, destined for an imperishable inheritance because of the goodness of my God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We can easily get caught up in the emotion of the presidential election, but that should not be so. We should be found abiding in Christ, trusting in Him, resting in the mercies of the Lord. Here are a few thoughts that may settle the anxious heart on this week.
  1. God does not abandon His people.
  2. Christ, your King, never loses an election and is always ruling from the throne.
  3. Heaven does not look anything like this place.
  4. God has never punished a righteous nation.
  5. Man can do nothing to you except destroy your flesh, which is corrupted by sin anyway.
  6. Jesus said His kingdom is not of this world.
  7. Satan is always our chief enemy.
  8. God's will for you is sanctification, with or without comfort.
  9. The righteous shall live by faith.
  10. Faith, hope, and love will still exist tomorrow.
  11. Troubles will still exist tomorrow. 
  12. In the midst of chaos, the saints get to be a light to the world by displaying a supreme trust and hope in Christ.
  13. Pray for the emperor.
  14. Honor the king.
  15. Pray for those who persecute you.
  16. Christians do not trust in the weakness of men but in the power of a sovereign God and a simple gospel.
  17. The church grows through persecution.
  18. Today is one day closer to Christ's return than yesterday.
  19. We are Christ's slaves. Slaves aren't entitled to anything.
  20. Your neighbors, friends, spouse, and children are watching and listening as you respond to the culture.
  21. Anger is almost always selfish.
  22. When the world is loud and emotional, it's best to be silent and prayerful.
  23. Our interest in our nation's sin must be overshadowed by our interest in our own individual sin habits.
  24. Let the news outlets be a reminder that we should constantly ask God for three things: Humility, Holiness, and Wisdom.
