God’s plan is still His plan

Honestly…I voted for McCain/Palin. That they didn’t win the election is disappointing…

Some are frantic, or depressed, or even scared to leave their houses because Obama/Biden won. Is it the end of the world as we know it? Depends on how you know it.

I know it as a world where God is good and He is in control. Nothing surprises Him. Nothing catches Him off guard. Nothing sneaks up on Him. He uses the good and the bad in our lives to “work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.”

God is no less good than He was yesterday. God is no less in control than He was yesterday. In this Obama/Biden world we are going to enter in 77 days…He will still be God, be in control, and be working all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.

If you place your faith in a politician…your hope in the above truths will be shaken…or even taken.

Put you hope in God. Period.

  1. Good stuff man! God is the only one who we should put our hope in.

  2. Your blog reminded me of this verse that has been going through my mind over and over for the past few weeks, especially in light of the election and the economic crisis:
    “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” Psalm 20:7.
    Then today on Facebook I saw someone post a scripture reference in response to someone’s negative reaction to Obama’s election that I thought was extremely appropriate and also a good fit with what you had to say:
    “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. ” 1 Timothy 1:1-4.
