I’m not gonna lie, the 2020 elections are definitely enough to drive even the most sane person over the edge and into the abyss of fear. Most of the people I know don’t even want to watch the news or follow anyone on social media who is saying anything political. The lies, false promises, and hate seem to just reinforce our hopelessness. It should.

In fact, it should reveal a startling fact about us—we’ve unwittingly placed great hope in something far inferior than what God offers us!

We are afraid, because we have placed great faith in this world’s highly flawed system of government. We need to make a transformational shift in the focus of our heart and mind. How do we do this? How do we make ourselves unafraid when the chaos around us seeks to wreak havoc on the existence we’ve always known and loved?

How DO we become courageous in the chaos?

Courage isn’t necessarily the absence of fear, rather, it is being close enough to God to know HE can handle what makes us fearful. To be close to God, we must belong to Him. First, we must surrender our heart and accept His gift of salvation; and second, we must surrender to the ways of His Word. Ahhhh….then, we draw close to the Almighty God who gives us the courage of a lion amidst the jackals. So our lack of fear is directly tied to our obedience to God and His Word. The more obedient we are to Him, the less we fear anything—even the political mess.

Courage birthed in righteousness engages the power of Almighty God. 

The Bible says: “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1) To BE “righteous” is having our spirit made righteous before the Father by the grace of Jesus Christ. To LIVE righteous, is to live in loving obedience to Christ and this—is what gives us courage in any circumstances!
