Pride and Falls


If you are a Christian who believes in the word of God then you should know Proverbs 16:18 that say's "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall". For Mr Romney, he became over confident that he would win and only prepared a victory speech.

For President Obama as a reporter said today "I think he began to believe his own hype", for his first debate even though he is a good speaker he was not prepared and admitted afterwards that Romney was better prepared. Once he realized that the Presidency was about to slip away from him he began to wake up. 1 Cor. 10:12 say's "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall".

If these two candidates were paying attention, there is a HUGE lesson to be learned. For myself it reminded me that Pride only leads to a fall so it's best to be humble and leave the rest to God. Also, even though Romney received the most popular votes President Obama received the only votes that counted.

I have never seen an election like this in my lifetime where a President received so many electoral votes. So as I've always known and was reassured last night while watching the elections, no matter what we try to do in order to change things...weather it had been Mr. Romney or the President.....God, is still in control, not us.
