23 Declarations I’ll Make If Trump or Clinton Is Elected
Found this post from Marvin Williams on a former professors FB page. A must read for anyone who follows Christ!
Trump anxiety. Is it real? Psychologists and massage therapists believe it is real. They are seeing more and more of their clients stressing over the rise of Donald Trump. People are fearful, nervous, and panicky about the possibility of Donald Trump becoming president of the United States, and I don’t blame them.
His rhetoric is divisive, abusive, exclusive, and the most disturbing of all, it’s popular. I have to admit, it frightens me to think that Trump could become the leader of the most powerful nation in the world (It scares me just as much if Clinton becomes president, and these could declarations can be applied to her as well).
I know this fear is not healthy for me, and that is the reason I have decided to do something about these feelings. Instead of panicking and becoming nervous over the possibility of Trump or Clinton becoming president, I have decided to make some simple, but powerful biblical declarations. I invite you to join me.
22.I will use rights and freedoms granted to me by the authority of the Constitution.Acts 16:35-39; 22:22-29
23.I will not move to Canada or the Caribbean (Well, I might go to the Caribbean for a purely selfish reason – It’s warm)
We are not slaves to fear and our ultimate hope is not in a donkey or an elephant but in the Lion from the tribe of Judah. His name is Jesus! Therefore, when we feel panic and fear, let us not lose hope, but remind ourselves of these powerful biblical truths.
