In an hour from now, this country will have a new President. President George W. Bush will no longer be in power, and the decisions that face the nation will no longer be his to make.
In some ways, I’m sure that he’s thankful for leaving his post. I can’t imagine the amount of stress that a President has in making the decisions he makes, and we tend to get stressed when the coffee doesn’t come out just right!
It’ll be very hard for President Obama to be anything more than a one-term President. I may be wrong, but the difficulty lies not in his policies, his skin color, or whether I agree with him. The problem lies in expectations—but of course the people around him already know that.
It’s been said that Pres. Obama will have 6 months before the recession/depression is his. I believe that it may be shorter. People are expecting him to work miracles
- Countries that hated us will no longer hate us.
- Prosperity will return.
- He’ll create new jobs.
- the list continues…
The problem is that this lies outside the scope of what any President can do—regardless of what you believe about his policies.
How Should I React?
This man is the President, but the Man on the Throne has not changed. That being said, our government has gotten where it is because it’s structure with systems to correct itself. Times are tough, and may get more difficult, but times have been difficult before.
If ever there has been a time in this age that the Christians should wake up and pray that God would move in hearts, it’s now. If there’s ever been a time where we should be helping our fellow man and showing God’s love and grace, it’s now.
People need to hear the Good News, and we’re the message bearers—who have you told today?
