I doubt anyone who reads my blog will be surprised to learn that yesterday's election didn't go the way I had hoped, not even remotely. This is the only part of living in Oregon I don't like, the wildly independent, often quirky, and mostly liberal ideologies. (But what can you expect from the least churched state in the country?)
So what now? I have been praying this morning and laying my hopes and fears before the Lord, and I ran across an article by Eric Redmond. The whole article is worth reading, but one paragraph was especially pertinent to me.
The question for me at this time is this: Can I continue to live Soli Deo Gloria under a President whose moral judgment already is questionable before he takes the oath of office?
Yes I can, for I can be obedient to Scripture, praying for the one in authority (I Tim. 2:1-8), honoring the one in authority (1 Pet. 2:13-18), submitting to the one in authority (Rom. 13:1-7; Tit. 3:1), and seeking righteousness for the entire citizenry (Prov. 14:34). These I will seek to do by grace. I will "honor the good appointment of God.
