I have to be honest. I feel something like Pigpen from the Peanuts comic strip, but instead of wearing a cloud of dirt I am burdened by a cloud of impending doom.
I fear the outcome of the election. My friend and colleague Kerby Anderson, who has more understanding of a biblical view of government and public policy than anyone on the face of the planet, told me that there is a good possibility we may end up with a situation we've never seen before: not only would the president, Senate and House be of the same party, but there could be such a majority it would produce a filibuster-proof Senate. That means that the people at the top of the power ladder could push through anything and everything they want.
Thus the sense of impending doom.
But there is a truth I choose to cling to that is bigger and more powerful than the possibilities: God is in control.
Praise God, no matter who wins, God is in control!
No matter if the stock market tanks in response to the outcome of the election, God is in control.
No matter how dark the culture gets as government restraints to sin are removed, God is in control.
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except by God’s appointment, and the authorities that exist have been instituted by God. (Romans 13:1)
God is in control.
Breathe in. . . breathe out . . . God is in control.
