It's the Day After Election Day

America has spoken and we have a new President-elect. Congratulations and may God bless you President-elect Barack Obama. May He bring you wisdom like that which He gave Solomon, strength to match Sampson, the opportunity to completely rely on Him He offered Gideon and words to rival Moses. May you rule with His discernment and your own humility. The people of America have pinned such hopes on you - may you never forget that nothing you do can be done without the blessing of our One Creator, our True Shepherd.

No one sits as a ruler unless appointed by God. Daniel 2:20-22 reads "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him."

May you look to His light and invite him to dwell with you, Mr. President-elect.
