Psalm 33 (KJV)

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.

2 Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.

5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.

9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.

10 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.

14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;

19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

A lot of people will be discouraged today, because the elections are over, and Obama is re-elected, and I am one of them, to an extent.  I did not want 4 more years of Obama as my president, and I cast my vote for Romney, praying he would win, but above all, praying God‘s will would be done.

No matter how the election turned out, it was no surprise to God.  He knew what was going to happen.  This was all in his plan, and maybe this is a test for us Christians, to see if we will come together, prayerfully, to bring our nation back to a Christian nation, as it once was.

Once I heard Obama had been re-elected, I started praying, asking God for guidance.  God wants to move in America, but He needs willing people to do so.  We Christians have to put on the Armor of God, go out and tell others about the love of God, bringing others into God’s kingdom, before it’s too late.  We are running out of time to do that.  This election proved how important it was to get the message of freedom out, by voting out values, and our freedom is being taken away from us bit by bit.  We need to put out trust in God, and he will see us through all the coming trials that await us in the coming 4 years, because I do not think they are going to be good.  A lot of the ones that voted again for Obama are going to be very disappointed!

We, as a nation, and as people, need to stop putting our trust in a man.  We need to stop idolizing them, like the media has idolized Obama.  We need to clear our mind, dust off our Bibles, start reading God’s words, and let it sink into our hearts and minds, and put out trust, and hope in God!  He is the only one who can bring America back to the great nation it once was.  He is the only one who will take away all the sin, and heartache we have in this nation, and make it whole again.

We need prayer back in schools, and in government.  We need to stop taking God out of our everyday lives, because it has caused more turmoil in America, than anything else.  Taking God out has ultimately taken morality out of people’s minds, and has caused many to think it doesn’t matter what they do, they never have to suffer the consequence of their actions.  If they do something wrong and they don’t get caught, then, it’s okay!  One thing people seem to forget, God is everywhere, and sees everything, whether people acknowledge there is a God, or not.  One day everyone will stand before Him, and give account for what they have done, and everyone will know, and believe on God.  Even the ones who claim to be atheists will believe on God, but by then it will be too late.

People, don’t wait till it’s too late.  Make sure you have your sins covered by the blood of Jesus, who died on the cross for you.  There is hope, and peace, still in this world, all you have to do is have faith, and believe on Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came to earth, to save the world from sin.  Confess your sin, ask forgiveness, and he will forgive you, and begin living a new life in Christ.  Find a good church home, one that preaching the true gospel of Christ, so you can be continually fed spiritually.  It’s never too late, until you take your last breath here on earth.
