Election ’08- Part II

I hear so much about the elections — from everyone.  Everywhere I turn.  It’s almost overload.  And, it’s so easy to get in the mode of criticizing, judging, doomsaying — about candidates, who’s voting for who, etc. etc. etc. 

But this morning a song based on Psalm 20 was rolling in my head. 

Here’s the verse it’s based on: 
Some trust in chariots, some trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.  Psalm 20:7

And, I instantly turned it around, thinking of this election:
Some trust in candidates
Some trust in parties
I will trust in the name of my God.

Some may look stronger
Some sound more lofty
I will trust in the name of my God. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I want things to go well for our nation, our country, and I have my opinions about this election and what I hope for.

But, that hope will never come in the form of a man, except the Man, Jesus Christ.  Where all others are imperfect and fall short, He never will.  He never fails.  And where others will lie or be proven false — His Word is always Truth.  He Himself is perfect Truth.  I want to stand on that foundation, put my trust in Him.  When it all comes down, everything will eventually be shaken (and perhaps already is), and the only safe place will be in the center of His holy flame, consumed with one passion and vision – to see Him glorified and see Him return as King of the Earth forever. 

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Take my poll!
