Lean on Me

November 10, 2014

Now that the elections are over, many are happy while others are afraid. I believe many people voted against the President rather than voting for the most qualified candidates and their platforms. The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. (Psalms 118:22) “But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken”. (Psalms 37:15)

Many believe things will be better with a new President. The Country will have the same results with the next President unless Congress and the Senate support him or her. Four years from now, if people don’t do anything to help themselves or turn back to God, they will still be in the same situation they are now, even with a new President. I heard people say “we won”. We have not been declared a winner until we have crossed the finish line and been extended an invitation to come and live with Jesus for eternity.

I don’t worry nor do I fear what party took the most seats in the election. Jesus cannot or will not lie. Jesus tells us: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me”. (John 14:1) Jesus is still sitting on the Throne and still in control.

God will never turn His back on us. “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread”. (Psalms 37:25)

God knows the plans He has for us. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Regardless of how dark the future may get “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

The God I serve has always been faithful to me. When we read in the Bible, God did not say anything about Democrats or Republicans. Many believe one party is the answer for the world problems. When we put confidence in people (especially politicians), we are doomed. Jesus is the answer for the world. God stated conditions and possibilities for forgiving our sins and healing the land. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land”. (2 Chronicles 7:14) God did not say “Democrats or Republicans” but He said “I” will heal their land.  We have His promise with conditions. God is telling us some action must take place on our behalf to receive His promise: “humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and TURN from our wicked ways”.

I asked God to send us the right candidates to fill the offices. Since I trust Him, I cannot be upset because of the candidates in place. We need officials that will attend to our needs and do the best for the Country. People are still unemployed, hurting, homeless, and hungry. Many need medical, physical and mental assistance. You can lean and depend on God. He will never let you down.

Prayer: O Gracious Father, we come looking unto the hill from whence cometh all our help. Be with our elected officials. Guide their actions and order their steps. Grant them wisdom and knowledge on how to care for the people and the welfare of the Country. Father, we pray that people will turn from their wicked ways, repent, pray and seek your face that the healing of this Country can take place. Lord, we need Thee in these evil days to hold us in the palm of Your hand. Take our hand, Precious Lord and lead us home.
