Be Still and Know

I was in the hospital watching the television when the results of the election were being counted.  

As I watched the news make the headline that Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, I could not help but feel compassion for the President Donald Trump and his supporters. This was especially so after many pastors and ministries stated that Donald Trump was called and chosen to be President of the United States. 

Now, before I elaborate further, I will make the statement that I am a follower of Jesus. As a follower of Christ, I humble myself and will not state who I voted for in the election. All I will say is that I prayed for both candidates and that God’s will would be done. 

~” Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”~Proverbs 19:21, ESV~ 

Weeks leading up to the election, I watched pastors endorse President Trump on the television. I scrolled through social media posts of my friends, with most of them thinking that President Trump would win the election. I honestly was not expecting Joe Biden to win the election. God has His way of surprising us. 

After the election was over, I questioned God as to why He would let Biden win the election. I even questioned if pastors across the country were even seeking God and His will for the United States of America. Of course, this is just an election. But, I am convicted that God had a different plan than those who endorsed President Trump had in mind. 

The plans of God are larger than the plans of man. They are greater than the plans of man. All that America has to do at this point is to trust God, be still and know that He can use any presidential candidate to accomplish His purposes. 

The plans of God are larger than the plans of man.

Now, I am not saying that both candidates views are agreeable to God or that God agrees with the both of them. I am saying that both President Trump and Biden could be used by God irregardless of who won the election because God can use anyone to accomplish His purposes.  

This is applicable to the future of our country. Americans need to have faith in the Lord and know that even when the future of our country seems uncertain that God is in control.  

As I reflect on the election results, I know that God is sovereign. God is still good. God is in control of the future of our country. Amen.
