2012 Elections - I'm Simply Not Scared
He knows the number of the stars and calls them all by name.

I have a confession to make. Last presidential election I was a freak case. I totally freaked out and thought it was the end of the world when Obama got into office. Letting all the fear tactics of the evil one get to me, I lost focus and took my eyes off of Jesus, in the moment.

And that is exactly what the devil wants us to do, lose focus and not see so clearly, to be blinded by our own fear and rendered useless for the time. Well, this time is different. This presidential election, I will not be moved. I will hold onto the promises of God and know that He is more than able to deliver His people from what ever comes our way.

There are two ways that Satan can render a believer pretty much useless, and that is pride and fear. Both of which require a strong focus on the Lord, in order to not fall into temptation of.

The bible tells us that fear is not of the Lord. Therefore allowing ourselves to cast a vote for even the lesser of two evils out of fear, we can most assuredly know is not of the Lord. I am not going to tell you who to vote for or who not to vote for. I am not even going to tell you not to vote. I am just suggestion to not allow fear to be the reason you do whatever it is you do with your vote.

No matter what happens as a result of the 2012 presidential election, God will still be in control. Nothing will come as a shock to Him.

Scripture says that God knows the number of all the stars, billions of trillions of stars; He has even named them all. Scripture also says that he has numbered every hair on our heads. The way I figure it is if God takes the time to name billions of trillions of stars and number all of the hairs on all of our heads, He surely takes the time to deliver those of us who are His out of any and all evil that comes our way. Whether it be in life or in death.

Psalms 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
