Well, election day is here. I have to say for the last week or two I've gotten caught up in the frenzy. Unfortunately my eyes have been on men and myself more than on Jesus and even more unfortunately it showed in my behavior. But praise God, he redeems. I woke up this morning feeling at peace and lighter than I have in days. I had the irresistible urge to praise him, so I did. I decided that today I'm not going to focus on the election I'm going to worship God. He's on the throne and no election or war or dictator can ever depose him! Snatches of Bible verses and worship songs have been flooding my mind all morning; For the Lord your God is with you he is mighty to save; Not to us but to your name be the glory; praise God for he leads us in his triumph.... All of these victories and triumphs and truths he leads us in are eternal and supernatural. Everything happening around us is temporal. I'm not saying things won't get ugly in the end but nothing has really changed. The prince of darkness is still allowed to rule this fallen world BUT the lover of our souls will still have the final victory for all time. So, today I'm going to worship!
