Count It All Joy!

  Frank Luntz, the word master, is depressed.  He can’t believe that Barack Obama was elected again in spite of the poor economy, lack of jobs, weak foreign policy, moral degradation in the United States, class warfare, etc.

What Frank needs is Jesus.  What we need is Jesus.  If we talk about Jesus to everyone and let go of our arguments for saving babies lives in the womb (It’s my baby and I’ll kill it if I want to,) for marriage between a man and a woman, (people must be tolerant if men lust after men and women lust after women,) we will keep focused on the Lord and not on our circumstances.  God wants us to grow in the knowledge of Him.  If Frank Luntz crafted arguments, slogans, and words to convince us of our need to know God, he would be doing something that needs to be done.  He would know that he is on the winning side-- that is God’s side.  And he wouldn’t be depressed.

We may be galloping toward the goal of Communism in this country but God can, with one mighty shout, stop it in its tracks.  This is nothing in the sight of God:

Psalm 29: 3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters ; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is powerful, The voice of the LORD is majestic. 5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars ; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, And Sirion like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the LORD hews out flames of fire. 8 The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness ; The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. 9 The voice of the LORD makes the deer to calve And strips the forests bare ; And in His temple everything says, "Glory !" 10 The LORD sat as King at the flood ; Yes, the LORD sits as King forever. 11 The LORD will give strength to His people ; The LORD will bless His people with peace.

The United States isn't mentioned in the Bible so we may be wiped off the map in some way before long.  But we don't have anything to worry about.  We are commanded not to worry so we won't.  God is soverign and His perfect will will be done.  I’m excited to see what the Lord will do!
