Has the fear of want ever overcome the urge to eat? When things are tight and the bare necessities don’t present themselves past the day? It is scary to imagine what the next 4 years will bring, but let’s talk about this; don’t be afraid. Eat what is set before you.
With a new presidency looming, we can expect financial bubbles, dips, new structures, change of every kind, and lots of fear. But let us not be afraid.
I understand having some food, but refusing to eat it. What if we don’t get paid on time and can’t buy more? What if? Believe me, I have intimate knowledge with that feeling. Let’s not be afraid.
God has promised us good things. God has allowed us to ask for our daily bread. It is not a promise that we won’t ever be hungry; but it is a promise that God provides all our needs. So, let us eat. Let us not be afraid.
God has allowed a candidate to be our next president. We will not be terrified. We will not be paralyzed with fear. We will eat of our daily provision. We will trust God for tomorrow. And we will hope, pray, and believe in God’s purpose for the next 4 years.
*Note, I have taken a long hiatus in my writing for personal reasons, and just found this unpublished piece. However, I feel it still applies, a bit late for the 2016 elections, but maybe for the 2020, or in general. At any time, we are called not to fear. We can look back and see that God was faithful, He is faithful, and we can be confident that He will always be faithful.
