Enjoyed taking some time last night before bed and then again with the Pastoral Team today to pray for our President Elect, Barack Obama. Prayed for his faith, his family, his safety, his counselors, his leadership and his future. Interesting thoughts come to your mind when you start asking God to speak by the Power of His Spirit within the walls of the White House and the hearts of the leaders of our land.
Sunday, we will take a believer,s look at how to react and respond to our President Elect. We will answer from a Biblical perspective the question:
"The election is over! Now, what?"
Here is one of my core convictions about these political seasons: the media owns the floor and has the loudest voice in the nation leading up to the election. The church ought to own the floor and have the loudest voice after the election. Opportunities for godliness, civility, unity and hope abound, if we will act right! Let's go church! Regardless of who we voted for, God has expectations of us and they start now!
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. Proverbs 21:1
