By now, we all know that Joe Biden’s vision for America during his presidency (if he wins) is definitively anti-God and anti-American.
Biden said that he want to make Roe vs. Wade the law of the land and ensure that women can access abortions with little to no obstruction. He wants to target the expansion of Obamacare specifically towards black Americans and keep them reliant on the government for their well-being and keep them in a cycle of poverty. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his first order of business should he win the presidency would be to work with state and local governments to implement a nation-wide mask mandate.
But even if Biden gets his way in all these policies and he wreaks havoc in the country, even if our rights our taken away and our freedoms removed, I am confident that God will still protect his people through thick and through thin.
Daniel 2:21 reminds us that “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding…” No president, king or dictator rules without God’s consent. While some rulers are hellbent on wickedness (even though every ruler the world has ever seen has fallen short of the glory of God), God still controls the course of history and every man’s destiny. Nothing happens outside his knowledge and nothing surprises him, not even Joe Biden being declared the 46th president of the United States.
Furthermore, trials and turmoil do not mean that God has suddenly forsaken us. In fact, God’s love only becomes more evident when our comforts are stripped away and we have no other option but to look to him for protection.
Throughout history, God has demonstrated his relentless love and thorough salvation for those who call have repented and confessed him as Lord. He did not abandon Adam and Eve when they sinned against him in the Garden of Eden, but covered them to hide their shame. He provided a path through the Red Sea for the Israelites when they were trapped by the Egyptians. Ultimately, his greatest act of salvation for his people came through Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection three days later.
Furthermore, the trials we experience are not void of purpose. 1 Peter 1:6-7 reminds us that trials come so that “the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Even if abortion becomes the law of the land, there is still hope. Even if attacks on the church arise, we will not give in to despair. Even if our country continues to turn away from God, we will have the privilege of shining God’s light with our words and actions, even if we face backlash and even persecution.
That is why we do not need fear the future a country where Joe Biden is president. Ultimately, God’s plans will be accomplished, and we his people must be ready to submit to Him and align our purposes with his.
