The Election: How to be at Peace
Meditate on these today and pray through them and the God of Hope will bring you to peace as you trust in Him.
God is in control.
He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.
Therefore, trust in God and you'll be hopeful and at peace.
13 I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
All authority comes from God.
Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you.
Therefore, pray for authorities that we may live peaceable lives.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:1-3
Remember who God is. Trust in Him. Pray for those in authority. Be at peace!
I've never paid much attention to that powerful verse in Daniel until Miss Jane mentioned it. I called her this week confessing my anxiety about the election. She says she meditates on it whenever she feels like she's getting herself into a tizzy. I followed her in doing that and found this truth to give me such peace. I am sure that Promise will help you do the same. : )
