After each presidential election we Americans, as one president prepares to leave office and another prepares to take office, observe and experience what is called a “peaceful transition of power.” How blessed we are to have a peaceful transition of power as citizens of the United States.  We who are not only citizens of the United States but simultaneously citizens of another country, “a better one – a heavenly one” (Hebrews 11:16) are blessed to bring a powerful transition of peace to people in times of chaos and crisis. 

The powerful transition of peace is given to those fearing and sensing that the world, or their world, has gone out of control to when we remind them that God still reigns, that He is sovereign and that He will indeed work all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.  (Romans 8:28)

The powerful transition of peace is offered through our actions, to those distraught at how hateful people can be, when we who trust that God is love seek to love one another. (I John 4:7-8)

The powerful transition of peace is received by those who have lost their health, their hope, their way…or who are just lost, when we remind them that by His stripes we are all healed and that He knows our pain and holds us close to His heart, that He has plans for us, that He is the way and that He ever seeks and never departs.  (Isaiah 53:5, Jer. 31:17, John 14:7, John 10)
