This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad about that. Whether it’s sunny or cloudy wherever you are, know that God is watching over you. My verse of the day is one I know well. I’ve turned to it many times over the course of the last few years. It’s blessed assurance that God the Father loves me and protects me.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ~Psalm 18:2
That’s a promise from the only one who does not break promises. You can read it again and again, and the promise will remain the same. I’m so grateful that he is on the throne. Many of us are concerned about the state of our nation in the United States with an election season filled with vitriol. Even our children are anxious about what might happen. It’s heartbreaking to talk to middle school kids who are worried about this election. It’s even more heartbreaking when I know that they are not connected to the King of Kings.
Carve out a little time for God all week. Put it on your calendar. We schedule everything else. Spend a little time in prayer and ask for the right words to comfort your children, and pray a prayer of comfort for yourselves. Rest assured that no matter who is elected, God is still on the throne. Rest assured that his will, will be done. Rest assured that the only just ruler has the whole world in the palm of his hands.
May blessings abound!
