Next Tuesday will probably, scratch that, WILL be one of the most defining moments in all of the United States' history. A lot of people are worried about the 2016 presidential election and what might come of it. I'm not.
Let me explain why...
I know what November 8th, and 9th hold. And the 10th, 11th and 12th for that matter.
Jesus will REMAIN on His throne.
Now, let me exaggerate the word that is capitalized in that phrase. REMAIN. Webster's definition: "continue to exist". As in, always HAS BEEN, always IS, always WILL BE.. Jesus NEVER got off of His throne. He didn't decide to step down while Donald and Hilary stepped up. Our Lord remains sovereign; He never left His throne. You may think I'm just throwing some cliche's out at you, I'm sure as anything doing the exact opposite. Psalm 45:6 says this: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom." In Acts 7, God describes the Earth is HIS FOOTSTOOL. Heaven is His throne and Earth is His footstool. His footstool! Take a moment and picture that. Jesus has us, yes, even Donald and Hilary, in the palm of His hand. In fact, at the beginning of time, Jesus handpicked these two individuals for the exact position that they're in, As did He, for me and you. He knew and planned that I'd be typing away at a blog post all of a few people will read and disregard. He knew you would find yourself being one of them. He purposely planted the courage in me, a 15 year old, to write on such a controversial topic from my bedroom... My point is, Jesus is IN CONTROL, and not only that, but He is good, and He is justice. He remains the same today, yesterday, and forever.
The LORD can control a king's mind as he controls a river; He can direct it as He pleases.
If you don't believe me, take it straight from the rock solid book of the Bible. In Proverbs 21, Solomon, the writer, tells us that Jesus has the mind of whoever is chosen as our next commander in chief. God has the power and might to spin Donald Trump's mind around like a basketball until his mouth is washed of its filthiness, Christ has the power and righteousness to take Hilary Clinton's mind and show her a picture of my sister when she was born at 36 weeks, and assure her that my beautiful, healthy 8 year old sister was in fact a human being the moment she was knit together in my mother's womb by The Lord Himself.
He has the power. He is power. The ALL POWERFUL ONE. The president might hold the earthly authority, but no one other than Jesus holds the ETERNAL fate of this nation in His hands.
I am not worried because I know that Jesus has already cast his ballot.
I am not worried because I know that as soon as the cheering and heckling stops on the night of November 8th, Jesus remains on His throne.
I am not worried because I know that as soon as the campaigns stop, and the confetti falls on November 9th, Jesus will still remain on His throne.
I am not worried because everything was already finished the moment the Lord said those very words on the cross 2,000 years ago.
Frankly, I'm also not worried because I know that if Jesus has planned it, we won't have to endure the rest of this election because of the 2nd coming of the Lord.
It is finished. And don't forget, it's not only finished; IT IS WELL.
I am anything but worried because of Jesus. Simply Jesus. There is oh so much power in His name.
And yes, I'm a 15 year old girl, writing this from my bedroom with not a lot of political knowledge, but a WHOLE lot of Jesus. And I am not at all worried about next Tuesday.
This is why.
