Bible reading - comfort

I was feeling extremely down about the elections when I sat down to read my Men's devotional Bible. I read Matthew 8:18-34. The commentary that accompanied that section was written by Chuck Colson discussing staying true to the biblical Jesus and included one line that jumped out at me...

"Never assume that the will of the majority and the will of God are synonymous, They may be different - and frequently are."


TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: bible; disappointment; prayer; vanity

Try Romans 13. Very appropriate me thinks.

My scripture reading for this morning was Psalm 105.

God's ways are higher than our ways. He is never defeated.

Sooo many things that needed to be fixed will now have another 4 years to be ingrained into our society.

However, the first two songs I heard on Christian radio this morning were about God being in control, and that comforted me.

God is great and his plan will be done so I’m looking for what he will do and what he wants me to do the next 4 years.

I have that to look forward to.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Here is the sermon that my pastor, my friend gave the Sunday before the election. It speaks for itself.
