We Will Trust God... And We Will Praise Him!

If we win we will praise God, and if we lose we will praise God.

from the movie, Facing The Giants

I love this quote from Facing the Giants. It is the theme of the movie and it reminds us that, win or lose, we must trust God and, therefore, win or lose, that we should praise Him. This is the way we should be looking at every election for the leaders of this nation. 

If you are like me, you have more than just a passing interest in today's election. Big things are at stake - at times, it seems as if the soul of our very nation is at stake. Of course, nations do not have souls, but people do and we therefore should be very serious as to how we vote. God is watching. Further, I believe, He has just as great of expectations for us to do the right thing as we have expectations for Him to do His part.

Will we meet God's expectations today? God will do His part so, win or lose, we must be prepared to do ours. 

It is vital for us to trust God in today's election - for He is powerful and He will give us exactly what we need, be it punishment or reward, peace or persecution. So, win or lose, we must not fail to praise Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV
