“So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”” Hebrews‬ ‭13:6‬

In some ways, it seems like the whole world is holding its breath. Today, the citizens of the greatest nation on earth are voting for a new new president. Never has there been a more contested race. Never has there been more hostility between people. But for those of us who are believers in Jesus Christ we must always remember at the one who’s in control is our Heavenly Father. Society may misunderstand us. Some may even attack us or accuse us wrongfully. Others will mock us. But the ultimate source of our protection and identity isn’t swayed whatsoever by culture or society or government. Now more than ever we need to remember not to fear those who can harm our bodies, but to fear the one who may rob us of our souls. In Jesus we are secure. In Jesus we can rest on his promises. In Jesus we find eternal peace even in the midst of adversity.
