Have you seen the new TV spot of an American luxury car on the mountain roads of Morocco? It’s a pretty awesome spot on road stability control. But it’s not about the stability technologies. It’s about the fact that we long for safety and security. It’s about the promise of something you can depend on. So today, I want to blog once again about the stability on the road of life.
Just like they were a year ago, first world economies are still weak and unstable. The geopolitical world seems to be a mess. Not much has changed in a year’s time since I first blogged about this topic. A year ago, violence erupted overnight in Egypt and so it did again some weeks ago. Today, violence continues throughout the entire Middle East and beyond. Consider Libya for instance. You know all about it by now. So many areas of the world are in conflict.
Two roads lead to Washington.
Yep, that’s right. Donkey Expressway or Elephant Boulevard will get our next Commander –in- Chief to the White House in 2013. Those roads will be paved with votes from the American people. If you are an American, you get to decide tomorrow November 6. What a blessing! I became an American Citizen in 2007. One of the main reasons I became an American Citizen was to have the right to vote. So if you are an American, count your blessings to live in a country where you still have the freedom to choose your leaders. Go vote tomorrow.
I mentioned a year ago about the promises that we would hear from presidential candidates to get our country back on track this year. By now, we’ve heard every promise. You already heard “their plan” to fix the U.S. economy, create more jobs in America, stabilize the Middle East, lead the world and provide you with a better future.
Although as Christians we need to get involved in our civic process through voting, let us remember who has “the best plan” for our lives. God has promised that He has a plan for us.
He said He wants to prosper us and not to harm us. He wants to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
One road leads to heaven.
There is only road that leads to heaven. Here is a promise that we need to cling unto:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14: 6
Although we may not have the best “road stability” controls that TV spots showcase, we can expect everlasting stability with Jesus Christ. I leave you with this thought: pray for our country and our next president regardless of what road gets him to Washington.
