God's Sovereignty in the Election

We're two days away from a new president. Tension and anxiety are high on both sides, as each hopes that their candidate wins. I think it's important to be reminded of who's ultimately in control of it all. In chapter 2 of his book, Daniel says this of God:
"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings..."
And it doesn't stop there. Not only is God in control of setting our leaders in place, there is not one iota of thought or deed of these leaders that is out of God's control. Consider Proverbs 21:1:
"The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will."
So whether it's McCain or Obama's policies that scare you, know that nothing takes place without the mighty hand of God ordaining it.
