With the election upon us, we may be tempted to distractions and lies. As I talked to a pastor friend recently, he mentioned how every election since he turned 18 has been called “the most important election.”
You have probably heard that this is the most important election. 2024, 2028, 2032, will be “the most important election.” So it will be until Jesus comes.
Let’s not get distracted or play into fear. Instead, let’s place our focus on the truth. The most important election happened before time began. 1 Peter 1:20 says, “He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you…” Christ was chosen before creation to be the Redeemer. His people were chosen in Him before time began (Epehsians 1:4-5).
Those election results will never change.
I pray You would keep our hearts focused on the Chosen Redeemer and our position in Him. No matter the outcome of this election, Jesus is always the same, and we are safe in Him.
