In the recent event surrounding the presidential election some difficult emotions have been aroused in my heart. Questions like: “Did we as the praying and fasting community miss it? Was it part of God’s sovereign plan to allow Barak Obama to be elected? What does this mean for the unborn and Israel? Are we going to miss God’s mercy at other future junctures where must more is at stake?”
My carnal man is irked (a nice word for mad) at the media for painting our new president as some sort of acclaimed hero. The other day on public radio I heard this little ditty that nearly made me swerve off the highway, “The blood of Martin Luther King Jr. went into the ground so that Obama could make it into office.”
Let’s be real people, King was not martyred (yes, martyred) to put Obama in office.
I feel more spiritually provoked and bankrupt than ever before. How shall we endure much more intense battles if our prayer goes unheard? From my perspective we lost this battle. Clearly. What happens when the stakes our higher and our lives actually depend directly to answered prayer? It make one ask the questions, “Could more have been done? Did I really sow my strength into prayer?” It’s this gnawing feeling in my gut that is telling me that I’m not really that committed to prayer and fasting and I have much unbelief to weed out of the garden of my heart.
God is good. Save Obama. Amen.
