God is in Control!

Well, the elections are over, and Barrack Obama has become the president-elect. Some are rejoicing at the great victory of their candidate, and some are bitter and angry about John McCain not winning...Many fear the changes and liberal thinking Obama wants to make, but many think he is the perfect president for our nation.

Guess what?

God is still in control!

No matter what happens, no matter what the circumstances, and no matter the president, God is still the King of our earthly kings (or presidents). There will never be the perfect president, but we do always have our God. Before the election, He knew what was going to happen. Sure, there will be things we do not like and things that we do like about a president. Many people I know and love as brothers and sisters and freaking out about our new president. What they do not know, or are not thinking of, is God. He is ever-present and all-knowing, and He had the perfect plan. Remember the age of old, around Martin Luther's time where many people were martyring "heretics"? The Christian faith blossomed in adversity and strengthened in numbers and faith. For an example today, take China or another Communist country. People go into hiding and pray in the depths of the forest or deep underground to praise their Lord and Savior for bringing then through another day and they pray for the freedom to worship.

I am not saying it will ever be like that here in the United States of America, and I pray it will never come to that, but if they have it that bad, who are we to be scared and question God's sovereignty? I do not mean that we need to be carefree, not caring about who we elect into office. We do need to vote. As people in God's kingdom we must help elect who we think should be in office.

So, when you are going through a tough time, or just don't get why, just remember:

God is in control.


God is in Control
Twila Paris

This is no time for fear
This is a time for faith and determination
Don't lose the vision here
Carried away by emotion
Hold on to all that you hide in your heart
There is one thing that has always been true
It holds the world together

God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know
God is in control, oh God is in control

History marches on
There is a bottom line drawn across the ages
Culture can make its plan
Oh, but the line never changes
No matter how the deception may fly
There is one thing that has always been true
It will be true forever

He has never let you down
Why start to worry now?
He is still the Lord of all we see
And He is still the loving Father
Watching over you and me

God Bless,
