An Eternal Perspective on Today's Elections

November 6, 2012

The Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes (Daniel 4:32).

My mother used to quote this verse when political topics would come up. It was her way of reminding my family and me that God has been and remains in control of time and eternity, whatever the puny efforts of man to challenge his Lordship.

It was true in the case of Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian king God humbled and then restored.

It is true today, whether President Obama is re-elected or Gov. Romney replaces him.

It is true whatever the outcome of every race, however minor or major, that occurs in our country today.

Does this absolve Christians of their duty to work hard for candidates who stand for faith, family, and freedom? Of course not. Yet in His sovereign way, the Most High is accomplishing His purposes. Let's be encouraged by that, whatever befalls us politically.

Jesus wins in the end - I know; I've read the Book.
