If you’re a Christian, Max Lucado is one of those authors whose books litter the bookshelf. He writes great books that are easy to read and present the Gospel clearly and inspirationally.
Enjoyed doing this Christianity Today podcast recently. Hope you do, too.https://t.co/svdVLV2epb

But most importantly, he writes. I mean, the guy doesn’t stop writing. Just check out his Wiki page – I got to 50 books and I stopped counting. The prolific author took a quick break from chain-novel-writing to try on a different hat: prognosticating.
He wrote an op-ed in the Christian Post that he knows who will emerge victorious when the dust clears:
I have a prediction. I know exactly what November 9 will bring. Another day of God’s perfect sovereignty. He will still be in charge. His throne will still be occupied. He will still manage the affairs of the world. Never before has His providence depended on a king, president, or ruler. And it won’t on November 9, 2016. “The LORD can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases” (Proverbs 21:1 NCV).
Understanding God’s sovereignty over the nations opens the door to peace. When we realize that God influences the hearts of all rulers, we can then choose to pray for them rather than fret about them. Rather than wring our hands we bend our knees, we select prayer over despair. Jeremiah did this. He was the prophet to Israel during one of her darkest periods of rebellion. He was called “the weeping prophet” because he was one. He wept at the condition of the people and the depravity of their faith. He was so distraught that one of his books was entitled Lamentations. But then he considered the work of God. Note the intentionality of his words: “This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. The LORD’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” (Lam. 3:21-23)
See, the guy can write! A great reminder in this crazy political season. Do not panic. Do not fear. God’s got this.
