Thoughts on the Day After the 2012 Presidential Election

It’s a beautiful Wednesday morning outside. Contrary to whatever the hand-wringers might have warned, the sun has come out today after a tumultuous election night.

But more importantly, the Son never left His throne.

Last night ended an epic eighteen months of politicking and two billion dollars worth of campaign spending. What do we have to show for it now that it’s all over? The same President, the same party in control of the Senate, and the same party in control of the House.

And the same God in control of them all.

While it’s tempting to wring our hands in woe, we must remember that God is sovereign and even though we might not always believe it, the words of Romans 8:28 apply, even to elections:

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

Yes, the days ahead will be challenging. Yes, our nation continues to head further and further down a path of apostasy. And yes, America will be judged by the just hand of God for its decisions last night.

But through it all, we have a hope, because we have a Savior, who is right here with us, each and every step of the journey toward His return.

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms:” Deuteronomy 33:27
