Political beliefs aside, people are hurting. People are confused and scared. Everyone could use a little encouragement, a little reminder that there’s more to life than what happens in the white house. That no matter what, God is on the throne, and He’s still in control. These scriptures serve as a great reminder of the sovereignty of God and His mercy to His people.
Because we are God’s people, not the president’s people. It doesn’t matter what side of the party line you stand on, you’re still a child of God. Even if you don’t serve Him. So, no matter how the election turned out, whether in your favor or not, find yourself strong in these scriptures.
Encouraging Scriptures for After the Election
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
No matter who wins, no matter what the policies, no matter man or woman or light or darkness- God’s love will always prevail. He loves us, He cares for us, He knows the need, and He will be faithful.
2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.
How good it is to know that He knows me, even before I was formed He had a plan for my life. The Bible says He knows the hairs on your head, so how much more then do you think your worries and cares mean to Him?
2 Timothy 2:12-13, 1 Thessalonians 5:24
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
He is faithful, even when we fail, even when we feel hopeless, even when we can’t He can. He abides faithful.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
Y’all, we’re gonna live with Him one day. No matter how I feel right now, I can depend on Heaven. We can be comforted together knowing that Heaven awaits.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Oh, how sweet it is to read those words. God is my refuge, a place that I can hide myself in when I fear. A place that I can find comfort. He will yet be exalted again. He is with us.
Don’t forget that some people are hurting. Remember that being Christ-like is showing love, it is comforting and merciful, and gracious. Find yourself in these encouraging scriptures and be sure to share them with loving-kindness. Let your actions speak of care and compassion and your words be of meekness and temperance. Be encouraged.
