"1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." Romans 13:1-2
Whether you voted for Obama or you voted against him, tonight we as a country have made history. Tonight we can mourn and be disappointed but as of tomorrow, as Christians we have a choice to make. We have to choose to respect, pray for, and submit to his authority. It is commanded by God. God has all authority in all the earth, and he chooses to whom he bestows authority in the earth. Please take some time and pray for Obama and his family, for now they face the challenge that can only be overcome with the guidance of our Lord.
When I say pray for the guidance, I also say pray for protection. A short 55 years ago Africans were considered separate but equal. A mere 44 years ago African Americans were given the right to vote. There are many African Americans that voted in this election that endured the hardships that came with separate schools, water fountains, separated buses, and senseless violence and much more. There are still people today who think that that is the America that we need to have today. Ignorant as that may be, people are blind. Pray for protection for the Obama's from these people that may scheme to harm and destroy. Now November 4, 2008 we have seen a complete 180 degree turn from the slavery that plagued our country and ended in 1865. Pray. Pray. Pray. God is good all the time and His ways are not our ways. He has a master plan and our faith in Him and his sovereignty will get us through.
