So I'm officially sick of politics... Like for real. And I'm not just talking on the media end that mercilessly slanders anything conservative or pro-life. I'm talking on the conservative side as well, that is in some cases a closed door to the possibility of God being big and accomplishing His purposes His way and in His timing. Now I'm going to be careful here.. But isn't he the creator of the Heavens and the Earth.. The one who puts rulers in and takes them out..? So how do we know the avenue in which He is going to accomplish this? I think we can grow incredibly arrogant in our thinking (as the church) and completely dispel the big picture of down the road.. We really don't know what will happen.. God teaches us how to pray.. He said to pray "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.. Give us this day our daily bread.. Forgive us our trespasses.. As we forgive those who trespass against us.. lead us not in to temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." He taught us to pray His Kingdom come.. His will be done.. Not "your kingdom come your will be done only if it looks like its probably the way you would work because this is the way you've worked in the past... as it is in heaven.." My point is, God is BIG.. Big G big O big D... He's a romans 8:28 new testament, awesome "works all things for good" God.. I'm not coming at this from a lazy greasy grace perspective.. It's the truth of who he says he is in his character.. He can really do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or speak.. So heres my final conclusion.. If Obama becomes president, are we gonna pray for him? Are we really gonna pray for him, or are we going to complain and talk about how everything he does is evil... Are we going to put up a picture of him in our classrooms and honor him as a leader and take up the cause to pray for him like we would pray for Bush? This is the kingdom of God, people.. Its the real deal.. Its loving your enemies, and praying for those who persecute you. Okay I'm done with my little rant..
