I'm sure that many of you, as I did, had a long and somewhat restless night. Yesterday was intense to say the least. As I went to bed I felt nauseous as I felt as soon as I woke up this morning. But then.....my precious, Godly husband had a real word of reminder for me. It wasn't something I didn't already know, but just needed to be reminded of. None of these election results take our God by surprise. He hasn't stepped off of His throne and forgotten about us. James reminded me that now that the decision had been made, even though it is not the outcome we hoped or prayed for, we had a job now as Christians and God is expecting us to do what is right. Our job now that is clearly layed out in His word is to pray for the new president elect. Prayer has not lost it's power and God certainly hasn't lost His. God can do great things and use anyone to accomplish them if we pray. For those that are somewhat stubborn as I am, it's hard for me to even say his name right now, much less want to pray for him, but that's what I'm headed to my quiet time spot to do and I encourage you to do the same. My feelings about the man cannot change last nights results. The decision has been made. But my prayers can change my heart and help our country. So now is not the time to stop praying as I've done so hard for our country leading up to this election. Now it's time to pray even harder.
(Read the lyrics to the song I posted last month! God is still God!!!)
I Timothy 2:1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. ...
