First off, let me say congratulations to Mr. President Obama. I hope that you pick Godly men and women for members of your cabinent and follow through on the promises that you made while you were campaigning.
Also, I must say that John McCain gave a wonderful concession speech. He really did a great job silencing the boo’s whenever President Obama’s name was mentioned. He was very graceful. He mentioned some very important things to remember.
One of my friends from high school, Larry posted this as his status on Facebook: “Well we got what we wanted. Do we want what we got?” Very insightful. Very good thought. I guess we’ll find out in a few months…
Here is something to remember:
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still guide His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.
Isn’t it GREAT to know who is really in control?
I’m also reminded of a great hymn “In Christ Alone”.
In Christ alone my hope is foundHe is my light, my strength, my songThis Cornerstone, this solid groundFirm through the fiercest drought and stormWhat heights of love, what depths of peaceWhen fears are stilled, when strivings ceaseMy Comforter, my All in AllHere in the love of Christ I stand In Christ alone, who took on fleshFullness of God in helpless babeThis gift of love and righteousnessScorned by the ones He came to save‘Til on that cross as Jesus diedThe wrath of God was satisfiedFor every sin on Him was laidHere in the death of Christ I live There in the ground His body layLight of the world by darkness slainThen bursting forth in glorious DayUp from the grave He rose againAnd as He stands in victorySin’s curse has lost its grip on meFor I am His and He is mineBought with the precious blood of Christ No guilt of life, no fear in deathThis is the power of Christ in meFrom life’s first cry to final breathJesus commands my destinyNo power of hell, no scheme of manCan ever pluck me from His hand‘til He returns or calls me homeHere in the power of Christ I’ll stand
I’m also reminded of another hymn, “My Hope is built”
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
Please, please, please remember this. We do not depend on the country to provide for our needs, but rather Jesus Christ.
Remember that Jesus is still in control.
