Polls indicate that most Americans don’t trust our chief governmental leader right now. He’s pushed through an unpopular piece of legislation with potentially damaging effects and its rollout has been an all out blooper reel. At times, he seems unbending and arrogant – unfazed by the barrage of criticism leveled his way. But we know better, don’t we?
Pastor Steve Anderson prays regularly for President Obama’s death. I really don’t even have to write this short post… but I will. Let me jump ahead of your thinking and say loud and clear – Mr. Anderson does not represent me.
I primarily wanted to comment on the significance of these three days.
- Sunday – Sanctity of human life Sunday, a rememberance of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.
- Monday – Martin Luther King, Jr. day, a celebration of tremendous advances in civil rights at tremendous costs.
- Tuesday – Our farewell to George W. Bush and our welcoming of Barack Obama.
My thoughts… (random, but worth hearing, or at least worth saying)
I’ve been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions in the last twenty-four hours. Even before Karl Rove said it around lunchtime, it was obvious who our next President would be. I listened to the speeches of both McCain and Obama, then went to bed. I went right to sleep. Why? Well, I was tired! And, I know Who is ultimately in charge.
Barack Obama has been declared, at this point, President-elect of the United States. My reaction? Welcome. I didn’t choose him, but God did. I could not and did not vote for him because of some serious values-clashes. But now, It’s time for us to prayerfully support the man God has chosen for this position. Let’s be obedient to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and undergird him in prayer daily. God has granted us this man as President in His sovereign wisdom. We may agree or not, but “the powers that be are ordained of God.” (Romans 13:1-5)
