Inspiration Thursday - It is Well

Whenever life deals us a harsh blow, we often feel anxiety. Whenever our society seems to be moving in the wrong direction at light speed, we become very apprehensive. We have been told that the upcoming presidential election is the most important in the history of this nation and that is probably true. So what is the Christian to do? Are we to wring our hands in worry? Do we rail against those who oppose even the most basic tenants of scripture? Do we run into the streets shouting our point of view into the face of society?
God says,"Be still and know that I am God."(Psalm 46:10) In other words, calm down and remember who you serve. Psalm 46:8-9 reminds us to, "Come, behold the works of the Lord, who has made desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two. He burns the chariot in the fire." We cannot change the world around us until we are willing to change ourselves.
If we want to see real change in the life of this nation then we must be obedient to His word and that word says, "...if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14). The change must begin from within. Then we can say "It is Well With My Soul."


  1. I've been hunkering down on this election. I know who I am voting for and so I am distancing myself from the hateful rhetoric on both sides. The contentiousness is very unnerving. America will survive this election I am sure.

  2. What Yogi said. I'm trying to do the same.

    Have a blessed day my friend. ☺
