I took these words off another blog. They were his comments in response to another post in another place. I went to his blog to request his permission, but there was no way I could find a way to make a contact. However, once you read this you will probably realize, as I did, that he/she wouldn't mind anyway.
I woke up with a deep fear in my heart related to the results of this election and his words gave me peace in my heart again.
Thank you bunches Therodman!
Love and peace,

We as God's people have no reason to fear. As someone already said, God is in control, and He is the one sitting on the throne of glory. We as kingdom citizens should have no fear, but faith and trust in God no matter who is the president. Obama winning does not mean God lost.
The Most High is the true ruler of all nations and He is the one who sets up rulers and takes down rulers according to Daniel 2:21--"And he 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:" And also according to Romans 13:1--"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."
Let us not be divided now, but come together as one people, especially the household of faith. Let us remember said that any nation divided against itself cannot stand. As far as Obama as president, let us remember the words of Gamaliel in Acts 5:34-3
9--And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God."
We as God's people must realize our citizenship is in the kingdom of God, but we live and operate in this present world. We have the name of Jesus and power of prayer to make change happen.
No president, whether it had been McCain or Obama can do nothing except the Lord allow them or give them the power as Jesus said to Pilate. John 19:11--" Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above" So Obama can do nothing except the Lord allow him or gives him the power.
We as believers should have no fear, but true faith and love that casts out fear.
We now have to come to understand that God has a specific reason or reasons as to why He has set up Obama to be President of the United States of America. It is part of His overall plan and He foreknew this and now He will work it for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose--Romans 8:28-- "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
Obama's heart is in the hand of the Lord and according to Proverbs 21:1--The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will. We should pray and take great comfort in this scripture that God is going to take Obama's presidency and work it for the good of His people, the Church.
America is not cursed, we are blessed.
Could it possibly be unknown to us that the election of Obama is according to God's will for the purposes He has for this nation? I know for many this would be absurd and ridiculous. But let us ultimately remember we are not God, and He knows more than we and what He intends to do to accomplish His will in the earth. Let us remember what the Lord said in Isaiah 55:8,9--"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Lastly lets us remember our man is the man Christ Jesus and no matter what as he said in Matthew 28:20--"And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
Tami, thank you for your convictions, faith and beliefs. It is now time for you and the other ladies to pray more, but not in fear, but in faith in our Lord Jesus and His plans for this nation. We are admonished to pray for our leaders and Obama will need the prayers of the citizens of God's kingdom. Not prayers against him, but for him to be what the Lord desires. Let us remember what God has done for all us who are called Christians. He saved us and gave us a new heart, mind and spirit. Nothing is impossible with God and again America is blessed!
