so we want change?

The votes are in and Barack Obama is our President elect. As he moves into his new role we need to be reminded of our role. Gods word tells us that our role is to pray for our leadership. Pray that God would grant him the wisdom to make the tough decisions that are before him. No mater what takes place, we know that God sits upon His throne and it's He who's ultimately in control.

America wants change and it's my prayer that we see it. Although America may be looking for it in the political and economic arena, the big change we need is elsewhere. What we need is a change of heart. Even if policy and procedure could usher in a strong economy it could never user in true peace. We would still be a restless people.

We were each created to thrive within a relationship with God. Outside that relationship we will never thrive or find rest. Jesus alone is the only one who could promise to provide for us the rest we are craving. Jesus said in Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. "

It's my pray that America would find what she is really crying out for. It's my prayer also that the church would be bold enough to proclaim the gospel and point the way.
