That's where I am tonight after this election. I believe that God has allowed us to be "married" to a man with poor judgment, dangerous friends, evil motives in many cases, and Godless principles. But the fact remains that God is in control and will not concede that control to any man.
Scanning some of my favorite blogs as the election results came in, I found this, and it's what I'll close with tonight:
No matter who you voted for--or whether you voted at all--it's important to remember that, as President, Barack Obama will have God-given authority to govern us, and that we should view him as a servant of God (Rom. 13:1, 4) to whom we should be subject (Rom. 13:1, 5; 1 Pet. 2:13-14).
- We are to pray for Barack Obama (1 Tim. 2:1-2).
- We are to thank God for Barack Obama (1 Tim. 2:1-2).
- We are to respect Barack Obama (Rom. 13:7).
- We are to honor Barack Obama (Rom. 13:7; 1 Pet. 2:17).
Between Two Worlds--President Obama
Good night. May God bless America.
