This month and the coming months are critical in our nation; we all know it.  But, WHAT IF it doesn’t actually turn out how we want it to?  Or WHAT IF IT DOES? What then?  These are most important questions that lie under all of the political arguments & opinions…in what or in whom do we truly place our hope? A platform? A person? A House or Senate majority? Or do we actually and practically place our hope in the God who actually has the power to set certain leaders in place and depose others?  The same God who has the power to do that also knows the number of hairs on our heads. He is the only One who can be truly trusted, and He is completely worthy of the trust of His creation. His plans and purposes are much higher and more wonderful than we can imagine. What I’m encouraging us to do is to humble ourselves before Him and trust Him with the outcome, whatever it may be.  Give us the wisdom & understanding to navigate whatever comes next trusting Him and filled with His strength by the grace of our Lord Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Daniel prayed a really appropriate prayer in Daniel chapter 2 when he was called upon to interpret the King’s dream. Notice what He’s saying about the LORD GOD here:     

20 Daniel answered, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever;
for wisdom and might are His.21 He changes the times and the seasons.  He removes kings and sets up kings.He gives wisdom to the wise,and knowledge to those who have understanding.22 He reveals the deep and secret things.
 Heknows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.23 I thank you and praise you,O God of my fathers, who have given me wisdom and might,and have now made known to me what we desired of You;for You have made known to us the king’s matter.”
