The U.S. is just hours away from either re-electing a President or electing a new one. When that happens, millions will be very happy, millions will be very upset, angry, and fearful, and millions of others will say to themselves, “What now?”

For Christians, however, though there is reason for some concern, we know ultimately, Who is in control of all things. No need to be fancy here; I’ll just lay out for you 10 wonderful assurances made by God Himself from His holy Word. These declarations of the Lord’s sovereignty ought to lift your spirits!

Isaiah 45:6-7
“… from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.”

Proverbs 16:4
“The Lord works out everything to its proper end – even the wicked for a day of disaster.”

Psalm 22:28
“… dominion belongs to the Lord and he rules over the nations.”

Job 12:10
“In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

Psalm 115:3
“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.”

Daniel 4:35
“All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: ‘What have you done?’”

1 Chronicles 29:11
“Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.”

Colossians 1:16
“For in him [Jesus] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.”

2 Chronicles 20:6
“Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.”

Isaiah 40:22-23
“He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.”
