You can’t live on pins and needles. I know there are those today living on pins and needles because of this election, but that is not what God has for you! Pins and needles are for those who do not know the living God. Pins and needles are for those who have no alternative but to fret and pace and bite their nails and glue themselves to the television. I know the rebuttal, “you don’t understand what all is at stake.” I think I do know, but even with the clearest understanding of what’s at stake and who comes and goes through the Whitehouse, my faith and my hope is not in men or women. If you are a child of God,you shouldn’t put your faith and hope in them either. The alternative to pins and needles is trusting in God, and no, you can’t do both. The alternative to pins and needles is more time spent in prayer for whoever is elected. God can still change the heart of any man or woman, but He expects us to pray and ask that He will. The alternative to pins and needles has to do with where your focus is. By faith look to God and be delivered from election pins and needles. All hell may break lose, but it never has to break lose inside of you and me. You may wonder if I’m saying, “Don’t keep up with what’s happening,” but I’m not. I’m saying, “No matter what happens, don’t be moved,” because our God is watching and sees everything.
Psalms 37:7 “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.”
