It has now been a week since waking up and finding out that America had chosen Donald Trump as the President Elect. There have been many reactions and comments. Many of these filled with fear, worry, hate and disbelief. When looking at Trump’s political platform many of the marginalized are worried about being deported, their civil rights taken way and their health and safety.
I was recently asked how I was doing as a result of the election results. My response was that I was doing just as well as I was last week. I was a little surprised at Trump’s win but not as shocked as others. I have always said that Trump’s views represented many of the American people. He simply said what many were afraid to say due to political correctness.
Many question how could a Christian nation elect Trump as it’s leader? My response is that this is not a Christian nation. If you really take a look at the history of this country you should not be surprised by the election results. However, I take hope in the fact that God has and will always take care of His people. There are countless examples of God blessing and working out situations for His people as they lived under oppressive rulers.
For examples look to:
the book of Daniel and read the story of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah
the book of Exodus and read the story of Moses
the Gospels and read the story of the birth of Jesus
