Today (the day after the 2012 election) is no different then it was on this date in 9000 BC...God is sovereign and he reins. My hope has never rested in a single person, even if he is the most powerful person in the world, but my hope rests completely in the Lord
What does 9000 BC have to do with anything?

The outcome of this election may be a surprise to millions of people, but it is not a surprise to God. He has exactly the person he wants in charge of our nation, and like most of this nation, I too voted my hopes; for Mitt Romney, but since God has chosen another leader, my obligation is to trust God and to do as he commanded…just as he commanded the early church who had a far more oppressive government leader…to pray for our leader.[/quote]
Obviously MOST of the nation did not vote for Romney or he'd have been elected. It was the majority of the American people that elected the President.
