Wise counsel for today, and everyday... Let's keep our eyes on Jesus. "Therefore since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. (Hebrews 12:1,2)

Today I'm praying along with my fellow Americans for this country we love. International friends, we covet your prayers for our nation, too. I voted weeks ago, but consider this my gentle reminder to Americans to get out and vote today. And let's remember, no matter the outcome of the election, the next president—just like our current president and every one before him—is under God's sovereignty and nothing can thwart God's plan for this country, and this world.
Father God, let your will be done. Lord Jesus, give your church strength to glorify your Name. And Holy Spirit, dwell in the body of Christ mightily so that when unbelievers look at us they will see the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind.
