What Not To Fear Or What To Fear?
By Manuel Hernandez-Carmona copyright 2008
God is control, always. There is a fine line between who
is and who is not. America has divided its core principles
in two lines: right and left. The Obama fear has to do with
the fear of the left. The right is always right. Even lefties
are doubted and ridiculed. Ted Williams was the best hitter
in baseball, and he never made an effort of batting right,
pun intended. America needs to be reminded that as long as
we continue to allow God in our homes, communities, families,
schools, courts and other God ruling places, HE will bless
us today, tomorrow and forever.
Barak Obama is President because God allowed him to become
elected, bottom line. We have to get away from that America
divide mentality. Once upon a time, we decided that you had
to pick sides. President Bush hit the right chord in his post
9/11 speech, when he asked, "Are you with us or against
us?" That was the right thing to do in 2001. Forty years
( a generation ) after the "I Have a Dream" speech,
a new era has taken America by storm. Just as we were supportive
of President Bush when he decided to take on Al Qaida and
Saddam Hussein, today we have to rally behind President Elect
Obama and his mandate to redefine our ill-stricken economy.
If we (God's children) are interested in spreading God's good
news, we have to stop complaining and moaning about what to
fear and what not to fear. The Word of God teaches me that
there is nothing I have to fear, nothing. Christian values
will always reign when we reign and become kings and priests
in our daily way of living. It is not about who is and who
is not; it is about reaching out, lending a helping hand and
making a difference each and every day of our lives. How can
we win those who behave or act differently if we are constantly
distancing them from our "right way" of thinking?
Jesus was a friend who befriended all, no politics intended.
It is up to God's children to pray for Obama and his administration.
God will send a Daniel, a Joseph and even an Esther alongside
the first family. God will never abandon us; we may be disciplined
though. And even if we are disciplined; that means HE loves
us and considers us his family. Why do we have to pass judgement
as soon as are "right" feels uncomfortable? The
greatest kings besides David and his son were never God-loving,
but the Lord sent his children to impact, influence and impart
and reign alongside them. What to fear? Nothing! What not
to fear? Nothing too!
