We lived! We endured it! We engaged it in!
We listened, we debated, we laughed or we cried, we relaxed and maybe we cringed....and someone eventually won the Presidential Election. Congratulations to all who won political offices and thank you to each who championed your causes only to learn of defeat.
A question we now have is where will God fit--does He fit--in the post-election life in which we now face? Not only will He fit, not only does He belong in such a zone, His presence is essential. Without Him we are sunk and with Him we are victorious regardless of political bent.
The future of anyone is pregnant with rock-solid hope. The reason for this can only be attributed to the Holy Spirit of God. "Ah, Terry, you are going to inject religion into this?" Nope! I'm interjecting the reality of Life into it. Jesus didn't get himself down here to give us robotic religion. He came that we might have life and have it ABUNDANTLY!!
But, how? is a perfect question.
The how is found in the Holy Spirit who dispenses actual attitudes and dispositions withing believers....Galatians 5:22-23. He helps us love when we can't on our own. He assists in infusing joy and peace, etc. when we can't pull it out with our best determinations.
America isn't going to work because we are rid of one President and now face upcoming time for a new. No, our hope is embedded within our hearts. Hope is a spiritual matter; not an explainable nor a humanistic power move. Kindness and goodness and gentleness won't walk our streets because we are Democrats or Republicans. No, such hits the road because we are empowered to offer hope to all around us; even when we are too inadequate to do so on our own steam....II Corinthians 3:4-5...which can only be found legit through the Holy Spirit of God.
