Mid-Week Challenge

 You know things have gotten pretty bad when one in four young Americans would rather have a giant meteor destroy the Earth than see Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in the White House.  26 percent of millennials would prefer a random lottery over the two candidates. Some 39 percent said they would prefer that Barack Obama declare himself president for life than hand over power to Clinton or Trump.  This is according to a poll of 18 to 35 year olds conducted last week.  http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-meteor-idUSKCN12I20S  This age group is the same ones that helped put Obama in office back in 2008.  Their energy now depleted they are more than simply being dissatisfied with the choice for president, they are ready to let it burn to the ground.  Who can blame them with all the negative media coverage?  Trump has been the best thing that has happened to the media in a long time.  With three weeks left before the election the one thing this survey shows us is both candidates have a lot of work to do.  But what more could either of these two say or do to change our minds? We all know they both tell the crowd what the crowd wants to hear.  If elected they will do whatever they want with little regard to people in a swing state.  If anything, this survey tells us that people are scared.  Do we really think Donald Trump will use the nukes?  Will Hillary Clinton begin a new Cold War with Russia?  The fact is we don’t know and not knowing scares people.

Here’s the great news.  None of this has taken God by surprise and He is not fearful of what the American people will or will not do come November 8.  That day and all days to come, God will be in the same place He has always been; in control!   So don’t fear, vote, be active, educate yourself, watch the debate tonight, but do not fear! 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
