I’ve made it no secret how I felt about Mr. Obama. But he won. As upsetting as this is, to borrow from Jon at Stuff Christians Like, God is still in control.
I’ve been studing Psalm 46, because of the election. Reality, both Psalm 46 & 47 are very comforting this moning. God is our refuge, our present help in troubled times. Verse 2 of Psalm 46, “We will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;” Verses 5 – 7 say that God will help, He is with us, even when the nations totter. 46:10 is the one that everyone will recognize – “Be still and know that I am God.” My NASB translates this popular verse as “Cease striving and know that I am God.” The study notes say that this “Cease striving” points to quit battleing, stop the warlike activities and acknowledge God’s supremacy. Psalm 47 tells us to sing praises to our God, and reminds us in verse 8, “God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne.”
So life goes on. At this point, all we can do is pray. Pray that God’s will be done. Pray that the damage will be minimal. Pray that the American people wake up. Pray for God’s peace that no matter what comes, He is in control.
