I am not saying this, because I believe God took Mr. Trump's side. Nor, am I saying this, because I don't believe in democracy. I am saying this, because God raises leaders up and he tears them down. No matter the type of government, God is greater than that government. He allows the leaders to be leaders. The apostle Paul wrote under the dominion of the Roman empire, and he said, "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God." God is the one who establishes leaders, so he set in motion Mr. Trump to be our next president.
But let's be careful about this. He did not choose Mr. Trump, because he is more holy or has the right ideas to make America great. Quite frankly, I don't know why he chose Mr. Trump, but God has his own purposes. Do you know it could even be an act of judgment on America? Mr. Trump used much fear and anger and hatred and ego-centrism in his rhetoric; maybe that is what is America is all about. The apostle Paul also wrote that one of the ways God judges people is to give them over to the desires of their heart. Maybe, God is saying if you want fear, anger, hatred, and ego-centrism, I will give it to you. I don't know why God chose Mr. Trump. We shall see.
However, one thing I do know. We need to be praying for Mr. Trump. All our leaders, especially our president, need wisdom from God to lead us as a nation. Pray that Mr. Trump will seek God's wisdom and even more, seek God wholeheartedly. Pray that God's Spirit of peace will indwell within his soul, and that we as a nation and he as a president will pass the peace to other nations. Pray! Pray! Pray! By the way, I would write the same thing for Mrs. Clinton also.
I didn't vote for Mr. Trump. I didn't vote for Mrs. Clinton. I didn't think I could conscientiously vote for people with such poor character. I did vote for God's Son. He didn't win the vote, but he is still king of kings.
