Sure, this is a day later than most post-election blogs, but I think the topic remains relevant…
I know you may be feeling numb, concerned, sick or even discouraged.
But remember this:
The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes. Proverbs 21:1
and ESPECIALLY this:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
And while the temptation to make jokes or snide remarks at the president's expense may become very strong in the future, remember this:
Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Romans 13:1
Because although God gives the people what they ask for (Saul as King) the Lord is also gracious, and then gives them what they need (David-- a man after His own heart!!!!!)
We have four years... if we will CONTINUE TO BE FAITHFUL TO: be humble, pray, seek God's face and repent where our lives aren't matching His Word, He will give us a DAVID!!!!
Is it worth it??? Four years can seem like a long time... don't give up, don't get discouraged... remember that our God is faithful!!!!!

I was reminded this morning of how desperate the situation must have seemed when those who followed Christ saw him being dragged to the cross knowing that God could have sent an army of angels to rescue Jesus, not understanding that the plan to come was for a grander purpose. I will hold on today with the hope that the same is true with this situation.
I believe that most people did not understand that this election was about more than the economy. I have to say that I am a bit concerned about the message we have just sent as a nation to our commitment as followers of Christ and our support for the people of Israel. I pray that we become more vigilant in our prayers for our new President... (end)
