What elections will not change
pastor corner

By the time you will have read this, we will have a new president elected.

Whoever that is will bring changes to the world we live in. He or she, along with Congress, can affect our economy, our laws and our national security. They may not be who you would prefer to be in office or they may be your personal choice.

The truth of the matter is, after the official results are in there is nothing we can do about it, except wait four more years to vote again.

What I want to remind the readers is not what will change, but what will not change, as a result of this election; by far the most important things in life.

First, the election did not change who God is; He does not change. James 1:17 reminds us that "(God) does not change like shifting shadows." Hebrews 13:8 tells us that "Jesus Christ (God in human flesh) is the same yesterday and today and forever."

He is still in control, for Proverbs 19:21 reminds us that "Many are the plans in a persons heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails."

His love for us never changes and he will still remain faithful to his followers.

Also, the election results will not change our position as a believer. We will still be Christians; we will still be the children of God. Nothing a politician or a political system can do can take away our security.

Psalm 118:6 reassures us by saying, "The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?"

When it comes to politics, vote, run for office, get involved letting your light shine, but remember when it is all said and done there are eternal things that far outweigh them all.
