Yesterday, the United States experienced a change in leadership, as a number of seats in the Senate and House of Representatives were gained by the Republican party, giving them control of the Congress. The election is seen by many as a mandate for the country to change directions, countering the leadership of Obama.
So, will the country change directions?
Maybe. But it’s not a done deal.
I think that this country has made huge mistakes in the past couple of Presidential elections, to be sure. But electing a conservative President in 2016 will not necessarily fix it all. I’m dubious that any one person in power is the answer to a country’s woes.
Same holds true for Congress. It is entirely possible that the shift in power will lead to a 180-degree turn for the US. And yet, as I said, it’s not a done deal.
Ultimately, through the President, the current Congress, the courts, and the media, this nation continues to reject God at every turn. Only one of those variables changed last night. And who knows what course the new Congress will take? Will it roll back abortion? Embrace true marriage? Recognize and support Israel? Protect speech and religion? Steward our resources?
We’ll see. Don’t stop praying.
