Election Day

Whenever I begin to feel that outside forces control my destiny, I remember the words of Jesus to Pilate.

At the time, Jesus was facing crucifixion.

Pilate thought that he had the power to sentence or release Jesus.

In John chapter 19, verse 10, Pilate makes a rather bold statement, and I think many politicians today believe as Pilate believed over 2,000 years ago.

Pilate said, “Knowest thou not that I have the power to crucify thee, and have the power to release thee?”

In verse 11, Jesus gives his answer, “Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above.”

Jesus knows who rules. He knows who is on the throne.

Psalm 75:6-7 tells us that “promotion cometh neither from the east nor from the west, nor the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one and setteth up another.”

Our president does not live in the White House.

Our president sits on the throne in a Kingdom that is already here but not yet.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Does it matter who wins this election?

Of course it matters, but either way, God is still on the throne, and my trust is in Him and not in any person.

Whatever else goes on around you, if your trust is in the Lord, you can have peace, you can have joy, and you can have love.

For the last several weeks, my church has been addressing the election issue in a non-partisan way. Our pastor, Father White, has called on us to focus not on the outcome of the election but on our mission to love God, love others, and make disciples. We are called to love and make disciples of those in our party and those not in our party.

Our mission isn’t to win elections, it is to accomplish God’s will on earth, and it is God’s will that we love everyone He brings to our path.

Let not your hearts be trouble, brothers, and sisters.

Focus on the mission and be at peace.

Much love,

David Dellman
