After Joe Biden is sworn in today as the 46th President of the United States, he will seek to enact policies that are extremely anti-Christian.

He will continue to mandate churches to be closed, he will permit abortions to be carried out almost to the point of birth for any reason, and he will continue to allow for the government to redefine gender and marriage apart from the biblically ordained standards for both.

But even as evil spreads in our country, Christians need to be faithful to our God as he is faithful to us.

Only God gives us security, peace and hope in a world that does all it can to reject the Gospel. Because of the world’s hatred of Him, they will also hate us.

However, we were never guaranteed a life of ease this side of eternity because this is not where we belong.

Our reward is in heaven, and if that means we have to experience trouble on earth, then we will truly be following the example Jesus set for us.

Yes, many of us would rather have seen Trump win a second term, but he is not our ultimate protector and he does not deserve our ultimate allegiance.

If we are faithfully following God, we will know that Romans 8:28 remains true even in dark times: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Even if we face economic, social, or physical persecution, we should not be surprised or dismayed.

James 1:2-3 reminds us to “Consider it pure joy…whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

Even if our fears are realized, God will remain faithful to us if we remain faithful to him.

Biden’s presidency was part of God’s plan from eternity past. Therefore, whatever happens over the next four years is divinely ordained and is meant for the good of his people.

Take courage from that.

  • I have been Praying every single minute Why has God-Forsaken us like he did Jesus? I am so upset this has happened to all of us 80Million American’s they Stole our Votes & our Voices now to I even heard that they will put the Republican’s in FEMA CAMPS to Control our mind’s.. exactly what is in their COVID Vaccine’s so it will be easier to Control us all.. the Republican’s.

  • That was some empty ass bullshit, brother.

    I believe your intent was good, and kind, and you want us to feel courageous now that you’ve told us to suck it up, “be faithful” whatever you mean by that.

    You blew it.

    Maybe I wasn’t your intended audience. I’ve stayed “faithful” to God and I do not give “ultimate allegiance” to any man.

    You blew it. And you’re going to drive believers away because you can’t wrap your head around the fact that the Republic died because the election was stolen.

    You’re telling us to suck it up, it wasn’t how we’d choose, but God is in control. Yes, he is. What would he say to our burning, broken hearts? Suck it up? Delight in persecution?

    You blew it. Hard.
