Who’s Really in Charge?


Psalm 93

Election season can be stressful. The negative TV and radio commercials, the signs everywhere you look, the constant phone calls asking for your vote. Even Facebook statuses are filled with political rhetoric. I don't know about you, but I'm glad it's finally over.

Political parties put their hope for the future in a candidate, but Psalm 93 remind us who's really in charge of all that we see:

“The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, The Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Your throne, O Lord, has stood from time immemorial. You yourself are from the everlasting past. Your royal laws cannot be changed. Your reign, O Lord, is holy forever and ever” (Psalm 93:1,2,5 NLT).

As Americans, we have the privilege and honor of being able to vote. As Christians, we must remember that God reigns no matter who wins an election. God delights in us when we put our faith in Him. When we stress and worry about the world's affairs, we show signs of unbelief, which is the opposite of faith. When we rejoice more about election results than we do about salvation, we show signs of idolatry. Take some time to search your heart toward politics. Are you trusting in the Lord to care of you and your family or those elected to lead our government?
