I couldn’t get on with my day until I processed a few random thoughts. So many. Many undeveloped. Very random. More to come.
I see so many comments through social media. Some of hurt. Some of frustration. Some of anger. Some of rejoicing. (I am glad I have friends on both sides of the political spectrum.)
10 random post election thoughts:
God isn’t perplexed today about the state of our country.
Fear is an emotion and not necessarily a reality, but perfect love casts out fear. If I’m afraid I should trust in You…in God whose word I praise.
I am supposed to pray for even my enemies…and those with whom I may not agree. Have I done that?
I wonder if our unifying answer is beyond our current two dominant party choices.
Christians have a unique responsibility. We are to respect authority, pray for our nation, and care more about its soul than its economy. I wonder how well we are doing that?
Just because God allows a king doesn’t mean He has chosen to bless a nation with one. That could be true of either party candidate who was elected. Remember the story of Saul and David?
Our country needs the Gospel even more than it needs new jobs. Revival often starts with a few people.
When the country is less unified, the church should be even more unified.
What if President Obama chose Mitt Romney as his new Business Czar? (Supposedly a position he’s proposing.)
I am looking forward to Sunday. My favorite day of the week.
Listen, as an encourager and teacher of God’s people, speaking to the church, let us not become weary in doing good. In due season, we will reap what we sow. Let us be be an example for our nation today. At work. At home. In our hearts. Let us show and be the love of Jesus. He is still our hope.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to us. (James 4:8)
(By the way, I have another theory about the state of the church as it relates to the state of our nation, but I’ll save that for another day.)
Back to work.
