Election Blues

Elections happened in the United States on November 3rd.  Leading up to elections, passions ran high in all political camps.  For some, their candidates won and their hopes were realized.  Others are singing the election blues.  For everyone, the election is over but the angst continues.  Our ideologies are sleepless and are already planning for the next chance to come out on top.

These verses have been on my mind this week:

“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.  It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in nobles” (Psalm 118:8-9).  

“Do not trust in nobles, in man, who cannot save” (Psalm 146:3).  

For those whose candidates lost, I pray you’ll find refuge and comfort in the Lord. Your candidates couldn’t save us, even if they won. Your trust is valuable. Don’t waste it on politicians.

For those whose candidates won, I pray you’ll find refuge in the Lord.  Your candidates can’t save us, even though they won.  Your trust is valuable.  Don’t waste it on politicians.

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world, otherwise my followers would fight for it” (John 18:36).  There is one noble that can save us: Jesus.  We didn’t elect Him but He elected to lay down His life for us (1 John 3:16).  I can trust a leader that gave His life for me.  It’s more than anyone on any ballot has done.
