We live in a new province. Oh, we haven’t moved but after yesterday’s historic provincial election we live in a NEW province…an NDP (New Democratic Party) one to be specific. After forty plus years being a Progressive Conservative stronghold in Canada, Albertans turfed that party out in favour of change.
I’m not a fan of change.
That said, as I prayed yesterday morning, I prayed that God was in control and that whatever the outcome of the election that day, He would direct the leaders of our government to make wise decisions that would (will) affect all Albertans.
I prayed that same prayer this morning for our new Premier Elect – Rachel Notley. She has a new mandate from the majority of Albertans. There will be a lot of rookie M.L.A.’s (Members of the Legislature) she will have to lead with patience and wisdom. She needs our prayers.
So, today in a Province that will be undergoing massive change over the next four years (and did I mention I’m not a fan of change?), I am so thankful that I serve a God Who is my one Constant. He does not change! (Malachi 3:6) “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17); “But You remain the same, and your years will never end.” (Psalm 102:27); “I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. “For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end.” (Daniel 6:26).
