Wisdom for Election Day {Tozer Quotable}

It would be great wisdom for us to begin to live in the light of this wonderful and terrible truth: God is the first and the last. The remembrance of this could save nations from many tragic and bloody decisions. Were notes written by statesmen {and election votes cast} against the background of such knowledge they might be less inflammatory, less arrogant; and were kings and dictators {as well as American citizens and politicians} to think soberly of this great truth they might walk more softly and speak less like gods. For after all they are not really important, and the sphere of their freedom is constricted more than they dream. ~A.W. Tozer

No outcome of the election today will displace God from his rightful throne. He will not be rattled, outraged, or afraid. He will continue to rule and reign with righteousness, justice and peace. On this Election Day, our King declares “peace, peace” to all troubled hearts.

Don’t forget: “For a child has been born to us, a son is given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is name Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish it and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this” Isaiah 9.6-7. 

Oh friend, these are not merely verses to read at Christmas time. They are words of truth for days just like today. Speak them bravely to your heart!

Our inheritance is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading…protected by the power of God (I Peter 1.4-5). Take courage and be of great faith. God was there in the beginning–He will see us through today–He will be the last One standing, victoriously. You do not need to wait for the news to report if the election outcome is good or bad…the best news ever has already been declared to you (I Peter 1.11-12). Rejoice!
