My Glorious

Posted: November 4, 2008 in emotion, politics, worship

I (like everyone at this point) am ready for the campaign rhetoric to stop. I didn’t realize it until my wife told me that my 12 year old son was actually scared of Obama winning this election. I panicked! I did not realize until that moment, I got sucked in like everyone else. I was so consumed in election coverage of campagin rhetoric and electoral maps that I had somehow allowed my son to be convinced that a president could have such a dramatic impact on his life. That the fate of his future relied on the cumulaitve descision of the voters in our country. Honestly, I almost cried for my son.

The truth is that as Christians we should never be convinced either by others or by our own emotions that anyone can care for us the way God does. We should never find ourselves relying more on a president’s promise than on God’s faithfulness. God is ultimately in control (Romans 13) of our lives and by His word and power we are saved, not by a presidential candidate. No government program has ever saved our souls and no government program will bring us closer to the one who saved us. God is much bigger than any president or election (Colossians 1:6) regardless of the media hype or the promises of those running for office.

One of my all-time favorite worship tunes is My Glorious by Martin Smith.

God is bigger than the air I breathe
The world we’ll leave

God will save the day

And all will say

My Glorious

The Chorus really sums up exactly how I feel about this presidential election.

    Yeah … the kids! The private Christian school my boys go to had McCain win by a landslide – duh! I also learned the public school district we live in had McCain win by a wide margin among the middle school kids. I have a good feeling that We, Christians, may become a little stronger in our faith if some promises that were said come to fruition. And still, it’s good to live in a state like Oklahoma!
