There is no denying that this great country of ours was founded on Biblical principles. Some 150 years before the American War of Independence, God put it in the hearts and minds of a small group of people to start a new colony “for the glory of God, and for the advancement of the Christian faith.” Those words, written by Pilgrim leaders William Bradford and William Brewster in 1620, can be found in the Mayflower Compact, a short document that became the framework of government for a country that would later be named the United States of America. The words and intent of that document have surely rung true for much of the last 400 years.

America has done more to advance the Christian faith than any country in the world. American missionaries have taken the gospel of Jesus Christ to every corner of the world, and America has always stood by God’s beloved Israel.

There are large groups of people in America who want to erase that history, who want nothing to do with God, and who don’t want to see Christianity grow. We must not let that happen. We must live Godly lives, we must be “salt and light” during this dark time in our country. We need to pray for Tuesday’s election, for righteousness to prevail, and for Christianity to spread before it’s too late.

Regardless of the outcome of this election, God is still Supreme, He is still over the entire universe, and He is still living within those of us who know Him as Savior and Lord. He still sits on the throne of all the earth, He is still “The King,” and we can totally trust Him! Our confidence should always be in God, not in any man or woman, and not in any elected official.

“It is better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence in man.” (Psalm‬ ‭118‬:‭8‬)

“For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness” (Psalms‬ ‭47:7-8‬).

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit” (Jer. 17:7-8‬).

“I just keep trusting my Lord as I walk a long
I just keep trusting my Lord and He gives a song
Though the storm clouds darken the sky o’er the heav’nly trail
I just keep trusting my Lord, He will never fail
He’s a faithful friend, such a faithful friend
I can count on Him to the very end
Though the storm clouds darken the sky o’er the heav’nly trail
I just keep trusting my Lord, He will never fail.” -John W. Petersen
