116 Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. Psalm 119:116
I thought it appropriate today, Election Day 2008, to confront the possibility that your candidate of choice or mine, will not win. We know that there can only be one winner so regardless of whether your candidate wins – I wanted to encourage you that you will be alright! You will live! God will sustain us according to the promise of His Word – never to leave us nor forsake us, always to take care of those things that concern us, and to continue to perform the things in us that He has ordained until His return! Don’t you realize that the Lord already knows who will win? Don’t you realize that He has already made provisions for His children to continue to praise His name, continue to live for Him and continue to be representatives for Him in the world?
Don’t have your hopes and dreams tied into a presidential candidate, or anyone else for that matter! The hope of the child of God is in Jesus Christ! He is our sustainer, He is our refuge, He is our deliverer in the midst of the most dire circumstances! Don’t you walk around in despair should your candidate not be chosen – because the Lord Jesus lives within you – You WILL live!
