Well, I must admit I am relieved and nervous all at the same time that it is finally Election Day! What a time of uncertainty for us as a nation! I have to keep going back to the fact that God is sovereign...no matter what!
Proverbs 21:1 (MsgB) says, "Good leadership is a channel of water controlled by God; he directs it to whatever ends he chooses." If that is truly the case (and since He said it, I believe it is) then I have to believe that He has the ability to clear the way for whomever needs to be elected so that His ultimate purposes and plans are carried out!
We do seem to be living in a time where there are many things pointing to the return of Jesus Christ in the not-too-distant future and chances are it's not going to get too much better before that! Weird how you can be comforted by even that if you trust that He IS in control!
So as we are filled with expectation, waiting to see what the Lord has in store for us for the next 4 years, let us pray with all unity that we will be filled with His peace, trusting that His will WILL be done!
