No Matter Who Won:

I guess I should have posted this last week, but I forgot. Anyway, I received this in an email and found it though-provoking:

Top 10 Predictions No Matter Who Wins the Election
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.
It's easy to get depressed when things don't go our way...especially when we think we know how it really needs to be! I sat up VERY late Tuesday night, listening to election results, and praying, "Lord, why?". Well, He hasn't told me why yet, and I haven't figured it out for myself yet, but this I do know: God is still on His throne, He still running this world, and He doesn't need my help! Whatever may come, He knew long before it ever happened and somehow even though we can't possibly see how He will be exhalted in it! Psalm 46:100 says, "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."
One song that was running through my mind the other night says it better than I can:

Lord, You can explain all the wonders
And you can erase all the fear
You can dispel all the darkness, see a new day that's dawning just a fewmile from here
When I can't see a purpose or plan,
Lord, You Can!
Another verse that should thrill you (actually verses) is Isaiah 40:28-31
Hast thou not known?
hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God,
The LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?
There is no searching of his understanding.
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
Imagine... I get tired trying to figure out what's happening, BUT HE DOESN'T!
So for all of you that think that the end has come...maybe it has, maybe it hasn't, but don't worry about it! Psalm 37 says not to worry about evildoers - their time will come! I don't know about you, but I don't have enough energy to worry about other people's problems - I've got enough to deal with on my own, and He's got plenty of strength to take care of them and us!
And THAT, my friends, should just about make you shout!
