Few men can lay claim to giving President Trump support as Pastor Robert Jeffress: Right from the Iowa caucus in 2016 the first primary in the Republican party. He writes on Biden as president-elect — how should Christians respond? What is God doing in this outcome? Why would He allow this to happen?

By Dr. Robert Jeffress
It appears that former Vice President Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States on January 20 unless President Trump succeeds in legal challenges to the counting of votes in several states.
For millions of Christians across our nation, this is a bitter pill to swallow.
President Trump’s strong policies on life and religious liberty would have seemed, from our vantage point, to be a better path for our country’s future. Many of you may be asking: What is God doing in this outcome? Why would He allow this to happen?
In January 2016 — a year before Donald Trump was inaugurated as president — I was flying around Iowa with the then-businessman to campaign with him before the Iowa caucuses.
We had just finished our elegant lunch of Wendy’s cheeseburgers when I said to him: “Mr. Trump, I believe you are going to be the next president of the United States and if that happens it will be because God has a great plan for you and for our nation.”
“Robert, do you really believe that?” he asked.
“Yes sir, I do,” I replied.
Donald Trump then asked: “OK, if that’s true then let me ask you a question. Do you believe it was God’s will for Obama to be president?”

“Yes sir I do,” I said. “Daniel 2:21 says that ‘It is God who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings.’”

Dr. Robert Jeffress
Human governments and rulers change at God’s direction and design. Our faith and our salvation lie not in any human ruler, but in the ruler of rulers, the King of kings.
We have to remember that even though the occupant of the White House is changing, the One who occupies the throne of Heaven hasn’t changed.
The fact that God has established authorities means that by obeying the government, we obey God.
The Apostle Paul told us: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and those that exist have been instituted by God” (Romans 13:1).
Paul also told us to pray “for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
Now, it’s always easier to submit and to pray for someone when he was our preferred candidate. But the rubber really meets the road when the person who takes office is not the one we supported. Paul didn’t give us any wiggle room — his command applies all the same, whether the emperor was the faith-friendly Constantine or the evil emperor Nero.
Here is our chance to show that Christians are not hypocrites. We serve a God who remains on His throne, sovereignly reigning over every square inch of this vast universe.
We serve a God who loves us and will never leave or forsake us. And now we have the chance to show the consistency and constancy/ of our Christian witness to this world.
When Joe Biden becomes president, we should commend him for the things he does right. We should condemn the things he does wrong. And above all, we must pray fervently for our president.
If President Biden succeeds, we all succeed. May God bless Joe Biden, and may God bless the United States of America.
