First, we must trust God. If we do not trust God, we are choosing uncertainty. No matter how hard we try to remove uncertainty, we never will without God. And when we speak of uncertainty, surely we point to uncertainty around us, but it is the uncertainty in our hearts that we really speak of. And we cannot remove uncertainty in our hearts by looking to a world of uncertainty. We must trust in our God, Who is steadfast in His infinite love for us.
“If God loved us, He would not leave us in uncertainty like this.” Again, God did not sew the uncertainty in our hearts. You and I allowed the uncertainty in the world into our hearts. God desires to dwell in our hearts, but you and I have let Him out as we allowed the world and its uncertainties in. This sounds terrible… and it is. But we can change this at any moment. When we pray about the uncertainty we see in the world, we show that we trust God to deal with the uncertainty.
Elections come and go. Some have greater consequences than others, but we must not allow them to run our lives. The news of the day is merely that. It lasts for a time and then is gone. Heaven is timeless. It does not go away. Sure, there may be great consequences to the uncertainty we see, whether in our current election or other news of the day, but we have to focus our hearts on God. If we trust in Him, there will be no room for uncertainty, since we are certain of the love our God has for us.
So, pray to God for the uncertainties that we see in the world, and do not let the uncertainties into your heart. Your heart was made to be a dwelling place for God. Anything less would defile your heart. It was made for SO much more.
