Today the sun rose, we were told it would not. We were told that one of these two candidates would most assuredly bring about the end of the world merely by being elected. We were told that Hilary was the greatest evil and that Donald was the greatest hope…or was it the other way around. We were told that a vote for one was a vote for another and if we voted for one we were obvious racist or misogynist or if we voted for the other we were liars and criminals. We listened to rhetoric and hate-speech come from both sides of the isle. For those like me who voted third party we were told that our vote did not count, that we were throwing it away. We were told to expect trouble, we were told to expect pain and suffering and we may, but the sun still came up.
Oh Church, why are we so afraid, why do we fear that which is in the control of God? Why do we fear at all when we are told expressly to “fear not” in Scripture. Oh dear and precious people of God, where is your peace, where is your hope. Do you not remember the words that God has spoken to you, the words of the special revelation of God When he said through the words of The Apostle Paul: “Be anxious about nothing, but in all things with prayer and supplications make your requests known to God (Ph 4:6). Oh Church, do not despair, for the today the sun rose just as 2,000 years ago The Son rose. From its resting place below the horizon, He has arisen and has risen to the right hand of God the Father. He is the Son, the “Image of the Invisible God” (Col 1:15). He Is with us, walking with us, guiding and protecting us. We are the sheep of the pasture and He is the good shepherd watching out for His sheep.
Oh dearly loved Body of Christ, let peace rule in your hearts, be not afraid of suffering for in suffering you experience the blessed Joy of communion with our heavenly Father. God has not abandoned you, He has not left you alone in this election cycle, you are not left to the wolves. Indeed, this is your call back to the loving arms of His peace and righteousness. The Teacher is wise when he states with confidence “The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run to Him and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10). Do not fear, your refuge is strong and unwavering, the grace you have been given is greater than any harmful arrow of any enemy. It is true that no weapon that the enemy can form against will prosper. We are the people of God, we are the sheep of His pasture, we are His and no matter who is president our identity as Saints cannot be taken away in the Heavenly places.
Dearly Beloved, you are so deeply cared for, indeed the Psalms says that “I have never seen the children of the Righteous go hungry” How recently have you considered the sparrow in this time of Political discord, how often have you thought on that which is good and Holy? Have you allowed peace to rule in your hearts? Have you allowed the God of peace to Dwell in you? Oh dear people of God, we are not children of fear, we were not given a spirit of fear, but through the Holy Spirit we were given a spirit of power.
Do you hear the Word of God in this post? Do you hear the savior calling out to you to “Be Still and Know that I am GOD.” Oh Holy people do not be afraid, please dear brothers and sisters, rest in the comfort of the God who has always sustained the world, from its very beginnings He formed its foundations, divided its waters, created land, sun, moon, stars, animals, you. Please little flock be at peace. You serve the God who makes the rain fall and the wind blow and the trees bloom. Who has seen and contains the storehouses of snow. He is stronger than Leviathan, above all the rulers and authorities and principalities.
Dear Church you are loved, be in peace, for today the Son is risen and the sun rose.
