It is the day after the election and my mind is turning…we huddled together on social network sites and talked much about prayer and the sovereignty of God. We steadied each other with the truth that God is in control regardless of the outcome. Let us remind ourselves on THIS SIDE of the election that GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. He has not lost this status since some of the political fog has lifted. If you are celebrating, please remember… It is harder to follow God while on an emotional mountain than it is while moving through an uncertain valley. My fear is that the desire to pray for our country will decline. Some will see this as a relief and will actually feel no need to move forward with the same intensity of prayer. If anything, we need to hit our knees and pray for all of the candidates and congressmen from this day forward as instructed in scripture. We need to pray for those who are fearful of the future since they did not see this coming. We need to pray for ourselves- our maturity – our taming of the tongue – our bitterness toward our own- our lack of empathy – our focus – our ability to pray for our enemies – our struggle with ourselves to become more like Christ. In other words, we need to remember there is still a bigger race to be won…a prize ahead of us. Pull together…work for the time is short…eternity is ahead…be an ambassador for Christ…finish the race and I will see you on the other side.
