The Election Is Over, Now Pray!

This will be a relatively short post, because honestly there isn't too much that needs to be said at this point.

This election was extremely divisive. Way too much time has been devoted to negativity and we need to turn towards a more positive perspective. Right now.

As Christ followers, our leader has not changed.

Wait, let me repeat that: As Christ followers, our leader has not changed!

The election of a new president does not impact who we ultimately follow. No matter what side of the political fence you are on, as Christians we are called to pray for our leaders. You don't have to like Donald J. Trump. However, God commands us to obey the laws of the land and to be respectful to our country's leader. Period. We are reminded in Proverbs 21:1 that God can change the hearts of kings. Reminding us of the heavy weight of responsibility the President has, we must be praying for him! I, like many Americans, really, really, really (did I say that enough?), really dislike Trump. BUT, he is our president now and I will respect him. And believe it or not, God Can Work Regardless Of Who Is President! Throughout history God has always been at work, in spite of all the different types of government policies and awful leadership failures.

"But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you!" Matthew 5:44
