Campaigning for Peace: Day 7 – Cast

Scripture:  1 Peter 5:6-7Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (NIV)

Thought:  Today most of you will cast your vote. You weighed it. You considered the issues. You might feel completely at peace today, or as anxious as ever. Today is a day we are reminded to humble ourselves before the One who holds eternity and kingdoms in his hand. He is in control. He is the only One who has the power to save this world from corruption. And get this, He cares for you, and for your neighbor who votes the same or different than you. Today we cast our hope on Him, because He alone is God, and His kingdom will last forever and ever.

Prayer Prompt:  “God, as I cast my vote today, I cast my hope, my anxiety, the needs of my soul and this world on you.  Whoever is elected, may they humble themselves before you, and may they lead with wisdom, compassion and humility.”
