The new president of the USA has been sworn in and we are now going to see how things are done! I don't dislike our new President, however I am skeptical about his prowess to bring about all of the changes he promised. In fact I did not vote for Obama because of his stand on many moral issues. But the fact remains that our government is a big ship to turn and it can take up to two terms to get it going in the direction you want it to.
Alas I heard the bad news! Just Tuesday of this week I heard on a talk radio station that this current president...less than 1 month into his first term....is "a one term president"! He has to be disappointed! Don't you think! I know I would be if I had just invested the last 2 years of my life in gaining the office of POTUS. Only to discover that they will only let you have it for 1 term.
As we all know that there is no way for them to predict that President Obama will be in for only 1 term. He might find the cure for cancer and then he will be a sure thing for KOTUS (King of The United States of America). We would all be thrilled with that now wouldn't we?
My point in this rant is simply this. How fickle the favor of people in our day and time. Pity the person who basis their choice on the opinion of the masses alone.
All I know is that the God that I serve is not fickle! His love for me is boundless and unsearchable. Just think about all of the mistakes that we have made...not once or even twice...sometimes over and over and over again. Yet every time we return to Him in prayer, He receives us with love and restoration. I think that this verse says it all!
Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].
God never changes His opinion of us! You can count on that!
That's what's on my mind.
