As this political season revs up (my picks for tomorrow – McCain/Obama (with Romney caving no later that SC)), I think it’s often important to take a break and get context. My pastor some time ago mentioned Daniel 2:21 which reads “He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the drama of the moment, but the reality is that God chooses leaders, both bad and good, for his own purposes. It’s easy to be distressed at the idea of president Hillary in November (God forbid…), but the truth is that nothing really surprises a soverign God. So, as you cast your ballot, read well, think well, research but don’t sweat it – the next day will come and God will cause the sun to rise and set again and nothing really will catch him by surprise.
