I don’t know about you, but lately whenever I see an article or story involving politics, it  gives me instant anxiety.

The candidates.
The scandals.
The lack of moral compass.
The mud slinging.

My mind spins with questions:
Who should I vote for?
Is anyone running who has integrity and character?
What is going to happen to the USA?

It’s easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of anxious thoughts. Can you relate?

Yesterday, I read this Psalm and it was like soothing balm to my very anxious heart:

Psalm 93:1-5:
“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.
The floods have risen up, O LORD. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves.
But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore- the LORD above is mightier than these!
Your royal laws cannot be changed. Your reign, O LORD, is holy forever and ever.”

Isn’t that GOOD?

No matter who gets elected, God is on the throne. He’s in charge.

His kingdom will never be shaken.

He is mightier than any political storm.

His reign is forever and his Word stands firm.

Sweet friends, when political anxiety rears its ugly head, we can claim Psalm 93 and take our thoughts captive to truth.

God is in control and he will prevail. We can trust him no matter what and no matter who gets elected.

Here’s a simple prayer:

Heavenly Father,
I praise you for being immovable and unshakeable. You alone are on the throne and you deserve all the glory, honor and praise.
Help me to remember your great power and rest in your mighty hand when I get anxious about the political climate in my country.
I ask that you would have your way with the election and I trust you with the results.

We are better together.
