"We know God is in control..." What's the Meaning Behind those Words?Submitted by barracuda_trader on Thu, 10/03/2013 - 09:31
As I ponder the effect Ron Paul has had on America, like many of you I realize he was right when he said, "We must remember, elections are short-term efforts.
Revolutions are long-term projects."
"If you're in a campaign for only gaining power, that is one thing.
If your in a campaign to influence ideas and the future of the country, the campaign is never over."
"I don't mind playing a key role in the revolution, but it has to be more than a Ron Paul revolution. This whole effort was much bigger than one individual."
Our human nature tends to want control. Even as many Christians always parrot how "God is in control", especially when things don't go their way.

Admittedly I am speculating here... I think because I have come to a point in life where even some of the most brutal circumstances and events DO NOT diminish my faith in God and His interest in my life.
This world is not God's kingdom.
But somehow He has intervened in my life so many times I could write a book.
And I have not always been honorable in my life.
Yet He has never forsaken me.
Even when I was homeless I just had this feeling of richness and prosperity.
In fact I felt closer to Him then compared to times of having a million dollars in the bank.
