The election is finally over and for those on the conservative side of the house, there are a lot more questions than answers. A great deal of ink will be spilled over the issues and who is right.. etc. I pray that it is only ink that is spilled. Many people much smarter than I will dissect, analyze, and politicize every moment of the campaign to see where the Romney camp bobbed when they should have weaved and how the people took one on the chin. We are knocked down but not out, we have to sit for a moment on the canvas to get our thoughts together. We really got our collective bell rung and now we have to chase away the cobwebs.
Abraham Lincoln, penned the Gettysburg addressed saying that the “world will little note, nor long remember what we say here; but they can never forget what they did here…” We are commanded to pray for our leaders, so that we might live as peaceful lives as possible. It is, however, Habakkuk that I think we should emulate at this time, because people will little note what I might write here.
Jerusalem was surrounded. Bad guys were everywhere. It seems the evil was winning. Then as Habakkuk prayed, God responded telling Habakkuk that He would do something in his day that he wouldn’t believe even if God had told him. Then Habakkuk responded and this is my prayer that Habakkuk’s response will be be my response as the days unfold before us. “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; he will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills.”
