Mr. Obama Is President-elect; Now What?

America cast its vote. Congress did not change all that much; it did move to the left. But the presidency took historic steps. So now what do we do? We pray. We do the same thing we would do, no matter the winner. We pray for our leaders. We depend upon the hand of the living God to mercifully move this country to a third great awakening.

Above all, we obey what God teaches in Psalm 37:3 - "Trust in the Lord and do good."

God save America. God save the congress and the president.

You said, "it (Congress) did move to the left."

This seems like an appropriate time to quote Ecclesiastes 10:2 "A wise man's heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man's heart directs him toward the left."

I thought it was relevant! ;-)

Well, pastor, I must say I have never applied this verse to politics--not that I remember! But it certainly seems appropriate to me! Thanks for pointing that out. God bless you today and this weekend as you feed your flock.
