This morn' after elections...

...I am grateful. 

Grateful that:

"My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart." Ps. 7:10

"..the Lord shall endure forever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment. And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgement to the people in uprightness." Ps. 9:7-8

"The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee." Ps. 9:9-10

"God changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding." Dan. 2:21

"The King's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it withersoever he will." Proverbs 21:1

I am grateful:

That our confidence is not in changing, fallible man, but in an unswerving, faithful, Father who never fails to keep His word. 

That our King is sovereign, never making mistakes, and never ordering circumstances differently than what is best for His children. 

That righteousness will ultimately prevail, showing forth to the entire world, a holy, just, and unblamable King who will forever reign in truth and righteousness. 

Lastly, I am grateful that this King is my king. 

Is He yours?
