As I write this article, I have no idea who will win the United States Presidential election, but I can tell you that the best candidate is in charge. I don’t mean the one best capable of running the country. I mean the One best capable of running the universe. The LORD is in charge. That should give us peace.
In difficult times, like you may feel we are in as a country, many gain comfort from Isaiah 40:30-31. It tells us that “those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.” But why would we hope in the Lord when the nation may seem in turmoil… or your family is faltering… or your health is failing? Well, before Isaiah tells us that that “those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength”, he tells us about the character of this LORD in whom we should hope.
