Trust In Christ

Lord of the Future

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious.
1 Peter 2:7

1 Peter 2:4-10

Yesterday was Election Day in the United States, and perhaps today you're feeling troubled if one of your candidates lost or if some ballot initiative that you supported failed. Sometimes we worry even when our candidates win. The political consultant, Robert Strauss, was a Washington insider who advised presidents from Lyndon Johnson to the first George Bush. He once said: "Everybody in government is like a bunch of ants on a log, floating down a river. Each one thinks he is guiding the log, but it's really just going with the flow."

The truth is—the Lord holds sovereign sway over the currents of history. These are troubling times, but we have a powerful and precious Savior. It's enough for us to leave the future in His hands, being fully persuaded that He has the power to keep what we have committed unto Him against that day.

Let's pray for our leaders, intercede for our nation and world, and trust Jesus Christ as Lord of the future.

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Corrie ten Boom

Romans 1:1 - 3:31

I did what I could to support McCain. So, in a sense, I am selfishly disturbed at my neighbors for the Obama sign in their yard. And, I feel the loss to be a personal defeat.

Well, let's see. We can sit and criticise the next administration or we can find our way back to life and succeed for the Lord.

Christine said: “Let's pray for our leaders, intercede for our nation and world, and trust Jesus Christ as Lord of the future.” Amen!

I agree. As you continue Talk Wisdom Christine, the Lord will continue to shine the light of the gospel to the world. Jesus is Lord, and HE is building his Church. We are not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation/deliverance of everyone who believes (Romans 1:6).

Much love to the West coast from the East coast in the USA, where men and women continue to go to work and send their children to school. God blesses our country every single day with the light of Jesus Christ. Praise His Name! (ss)
