Exactly Now what?? Obama won with a large victory..but honestly the only victor is Christ =)) if you feel disheartened or sad or upset about our new president just think of Jesus HE is the victor and HE will have even Obama under his loving hand...and HE (Jesus of course) has everything under his control..i was honestly sad about Obama winning, after the concession speech where Mccain was so humble and meek even..i just felt completely terrified not of Obama winning but more of how the country can become under HIS rule...but the next day I felt God's ever-loving touch i felt HIM saying in his own way..."Don't worry my child..Everything will be ok, I will come and i will save...Just pray my child PRAY for the president elect and for his family" remember that verse?? pray ceaselessly..that's what i recommend all my blogger friends to do...pray ceaselessly for Obama and for his whole family..and for our country..and for our freedoms..and for everything else going on in the world...This is not mentioned much in the media..except i saw this on CPTV and heard about it in church..but Congo tonight needs our prayers..please pray for those poor people...Not only do they live in hunger and suffering like some other African countries..but they have a turmoil time there now, there are a lot of villains(criminals) rampaging through the villages, a lot of women have been raped, i think the war is political, but they all need our prayers especially the rape victims..it makes me sad and i feel for those poor ladies soo much...We as Christians are asked to pray for everyone, including Congo and it's people, for other people in other countries and for even our President Obama. Wether you voted for him or not..He deserves our respect and at the least our prayers....
Here is a link to a wonderful blog post on how we should pray for our president elect...it's a wonderful blog post i highly recommend reading it...here it is =))http://www.joshharris.com/2008/11/praying_for_president_elect_ob_1.php
it's an amazing piece written by Joshua Harris..and a lot commented it and it's amazing how some of the commenters misunderstood his post and were off topic..but i'll shush on that..just check out the blog post...i will give an excerpt of the post....and meditate on the next words that are from his post =))
No matter who you voted for--or whether you voted at all--it's important to remember that, as President, Barack Obama will have God-given authority to govern us, and that we should view him as a servant of God (Rom. 13:1, 4) to whom we should be subject (Rom. 13:1, 5; 1 Pet. 2:13-14).
We are to pray for Barack Obama (1 Tim. 2:1-2).
We are to thank God for Barack Obama (1 Tim. 2:1-2).
We are to respect Barack Obama (Rom. 13:7).
We are to honor Barack Obama (Rom. 13:7; 1 Pet. 2:17).
Those lines alone hit me hard...to pray for him was one thing but to respect and honor and thank God for Mr. Barack?? wow that hit me hard..but it's true we should all do that if we are truly God's children..we are not to judge our president Elect..because God is the only final judge we are not to forget that God can save the day =))
We are to remember that God will have his say ..HE will come and save us.
I truly believe that we are in the end times now, and i believe with my whole heart that Jesus will come and save us all...I hope we in the mean time get on our very knees and pray for this beautiful country and for the president elect and for his family and especially for Barack's salvation...that's our duty as citizens of God's kingdom =))
All right i am getting of my soapbox...i'm done for now i promise!! i'm sorry this was so long and i'm sorry for my (probably) unpopular words of not just disagreeing with Obama's policies but of asking to pray for him...i hope you all understand that i'm not trying to offend anyone, nor am i trying to sound high and mighty i just speak the truth as i see fit..and this is my blog and please respect my oppinion as i highly respect yours..i fear this blog post will bring a lot of comments and maybe even some lurkers =)) i actually hope more comment on my page but politely of course!
P.S. i do want to mention even though i asked for others to pray for Obama Barack..i highly disagree with most of his policies...especially with his treatment towards the unborn and he even favors infanticide which i think says volumes about him..BUT i'm done criticizing him and i just ask everyone to pray for GOD to change this man...anyone can be changed and saved...Does anyone remember Saul--Paul?? he was changed..so can our president elect be changed with our prayers..Please please pray!! that's all i ask!!
thank you everyone!!
Love you all!!
And please please comment my page, i love comments =) always have and always will =))
