Phew, that was a close one last night, and today half of you are excited and half of you are depressed. I thought it might be good to take a look at how Paul dealt with things, whether good or bad. When he wrote to the church in Phillipa he described a certain amount of contentment, of self-sufficiency, and of an ability to “make do” in any situation.
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13 New International Version (NIV)
So, as a follower of the Christ, you already have everything you need. If you are excited or depressed about the outcome of the election, it doesn’t really matter. The Christ has provided all we need to be successful and bring glory to God over the next four years- no matter what may come!
