1. I didn’t vote for him, but that doesn’t mean we don’t owe him respect as our elected leader (Romans 13:1-2).
  2. Hoping for the newly elected President to fail does not demonstrate the abundant grace that God has extended to us all and asks us to share with each other. As my Beloved regularly reminds us, it’s not grace if you deserve it.
  3. God is sovereign (Job 38). God sometimes allows us the blessing of participating in his plans, but he doesn’t need us to accomplish them. In times like this we need to recognize that the inverse is also true: God can use anyone to accomplish anything he wants to do (Proverbs 21:1).
  4. Prayer is still our most important tool. We should pray for our new president (1 Timothy 2:1-4 ), that God would help us to be an effective witness (Colossians 4:3-4), and above all, that God would be glorified.

And that’s all I have to say about that.
