Let me just start by saying that I am overwhelmingly disappointed by the election results. As a small business owner, health care provider, lifelong resident of coal country and Christian, I have a firm grasp on the implications of America's decision.
Having said that, are we Israelites? Is God only in control when things are going the way we want them to?
I read through my Facebook feed and am overwhelmed. Not because of what I read necessarily, but because what I'm reading mirrors my thoughts.
How many times have I read Exodus and judged the children of Israel for doubting God, despite His providence and miracles?
It's different for us though. We're entitled to our "woe is me" attitude. It's not like God has done anything for us.
Oh wait. That's not true is it?
Instead of hitting Facebook today to declare our doom and gloom, why don't we hit our knees and cry out to our heavenly Father. Not because Obama is our President, but because Jesus is our King.
Father, I thank you that you are in control.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved. Psalm 62:6 (AMP)
