There’s an internet theory that putting “Hey” in the subject line of an email gets attention. So while I have your attention I want to make sure you know something really, really important.
No matter what happens in eight days, God is sovereign. The God who gave us Barack Obama and Donald Trump could choose Joe Biden or Trump. God’s will be done. The God who brought bread from Heaven and water from rocks and raised you from the dust of the earth and stitched you together in your mother’s womb is going to still be on His throne ruling the universe in eight days.
Too many of you are convinced the country is going to hell in a handbasket if your guy doesn’t win. Well, I’ve read the end of the book and I don’t mean this to be a spoiler alert, but everybody is going to hell without a handbasket except for those who put their faith in Jesus Christ, not a politician or a political party.
So calm down.

Yes, you have a civic obligation to vote and participate in the process. But God has a plan and is sovereign and is in charge and His will be done, not yours. So calm down and trust in Jesus.
The way people are acting at this point, you’d think both sides are looking to election night as the approach of a messiah. The extent to which you might be freaked out by the election is the extent to which you’re putting your hope in men, not God.
I was told if Barack Obama got elected in 2008, it’d be the end of America. I was told the same thing in 2012. The nation is still here. We’re supposed to believe that this time, really and truly this very time, if your guy doesn’t win the country is over — and I say it that way because Democrats and Republicans are both saying that.
George W. Bush’s election and re-election did not destroy the country. Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats in 2006 didn’t either. Neither did Obama’s election or re-election or the rise of the tea party or the House Freedom Caucus or the election of Donald Trump.
The country is still here and if we are really honest about it things have changed not a ton from one administration to the next.
But this time it’ll be different they tell me. This time, just you wait — this time the Democrats really will do all the terrible things or the GOP will impose their terrible totalitarian regime.
We’ll hear the same rhetoric again in 2022 and 2024 and 2026 and 2028 and each time it won’t be true, but each time many of you who believe it now will believe it then and be mad each time for me telling you it is not so.
I’ve got something better to believe in — His name is Jesus and He reigns supreme and whatever happens in eight days is all part of his plan. So put your trust in Him. He won’t let you down even when people, parties, voters, and policies do.
So calm down.
