It is so easy to get swept away in today’s political war. I can feel my flesh burning with anger when I think of our candidates. My mind races about all of the possibilities that could occur if either of these candidates are elected. It is not until I stop and pray that I realize that no matter what happens I am safe. I have a protector. I do not have one thing to worry about because I have my Heavenly Father on my side. This campaign does not decide my future. God decides my future.

Revelation 19:16 says of Jesus, “On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.” My leader is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

God has the power to change the hearts of our leaders. God has laid on my heart to pray for our leaders instead of feeling angry or disappointed that these are our choices.

God pointed me towards Romans 13:1-5:

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

Heavenly Father, I praise you for you are good. You are faithful. You do no wrong. Lord, I confess that I have not trusted in you during this political time. I have been angry, disappointed, and frustrated. I have not looked towards you for guidance but I have looked towards my own worldly thinking. God I thank you that you have revealed this sin in me and that you have given me this Scripture to pray over. I thank you for you have shown me comfort even though I am undeserving. I ask that you would continue to do your will, God. Give me the knowledge to know it is your will being done. Father, please be with our leaders during this time. May they be servants to you, Lord, and look to you for guidance. I ask that you will guide them in the right direction. Lord, I thank you for you are the only good in this world and you have all the authority in heaven and on earth and you are our King of kings and Lord of lords. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Showered in His Love
