election woes

well...it's been an interesting night and i'm probably not the only one who is a little disappointed or skeptical about the election outcome. however, what i know about myself is that i am fallible and only as wise as my experience and faith allows, but my God is greater than any government or leader. if we continue to honor His word and thereby honor our new leader (when that time comes), He is faithful to protect His flock.

...the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

~Daniel 4:17

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

~1 Peter 2:13-17

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

~1 John 3:22

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

~Luke 12:32

Hi HB,
Thanks for that reminder. Those verses are reasuring.
I hope you are doing well.
Take care!

disclaimer:  caution must be taken when reading my blog.  i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will.  older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones.  there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons.  first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past.   second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1.   if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be.  pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
