The United States is divided. Clear lines have been drawn. There is division, dissension, violence, deception, lying, and unrest. Some, even self-proclaimed Christians, believe that Donald J. Trump won the November 2020 election and should remain President. Others believe that there was a free and fair election and President-elect Joseph R. Biden and Vice-President elect Kamala Harris won the November 2020 election.
This brought me so much comfort and hope. There are things in all of our family histories that aren’t perfect or pristine. However, when we look at the genealogy of Jesus, neither was His earthly family history perfect or pristine (See Matthew 1:1-16). But God is so good that He still used those imperfect people in Jesus’s genealogy and that messy and dysfunctional family history to bring forth the perfect, holy, righteous, and blameless Messiah into the world!
Before Christ, I was deluded and deceived. I thought I was a good person until God, in His mercy, goodness, and love, drew me unto Himself. He revealed Himself to me through the Scriptures and in turn the truth about who I am, apart from Him, was revealed.
The Lord has repeatedly brought this Scripture to my attention. This year has been wrought with various tests and trials. At times it has been difficult to keep going, BUT GOD. The Lord has been my refuge, strength, comfort, hope, and provider during my time of suffering. He has and continues to be faithful, and I’m so thankful and grateful that He has promised to never leave or forsake me, because I know this will not be the last test or trial I endure.
Presidents, political parties, policies, etc. don’t change the hearts of men, only the one, true living God does that. God draws men unto Himself (John 6:44). Jesus reveals the Father to whom He chooses (Matthew 11:27). Man has no control over that! No matter who is the President of the United States of America, God is in control of it all. His will is always done, no matter what man is put in office, no matter what policies and laws are enacted.
Sometimes the days are long and hard. It’s during these times that the enemy tempts me to be frustrated, doubt God, and give up on the process. However, I’m glad I serve a High Priest who understands my weakness because He was tempted in every way that I am, and was without sin (Hebrews 4:15). I’m glad that He is the God of all comfort who encourages and empowers me to do all that He created me to do.
