We shall see...

As of right now, this is the best guess all of the analyzers and political polls can make. For up to the minute, look here.

As a Bible believer, regardless of todays results, God is still on His throne. His word is still my authority. In the end, Satan loses and God wins. Very good news to me!

It is just all of this in between stuff that is a bit of a distraction!

Unfortunately as you can see by this little map, I live in #31 state which is solidly blue. Not what my one vote represents. My kids are figuring out what year their 18th birthday will be in so they know when their vote can be made. I remember doing that to see how old I would be when the millennium changed. Wow, was I going to be old by then...! Great, and 8+ years have passed since then.

But whether you are 18 yet or not, and whether your state reflects your vote or not, if you are a Christian, one of God's people called by His name, there is something to be done today that will matter.

2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I want to hear from heaven, have my sins forgiven as a nation and as an individual, and have my land healed. But have I humbled myself? Have I prayed? Have I sought God's face? Have I turned from my wicked ways?

Surely God's way is a good way.

The electoral vote will for sure decide the out come regardless of the actual popular vote, and I completely believe our founding founders of this country were far more wise and God-lead than men of today, as they saw a need for this system in the beginning. In only four elections has the popular vote not agreed with the electoral vote. After today, it may be five. We shall see.
