“Well, that didn’t work out so well, maybe.”

_________________________________

IMHO...I think it IS “working out.” I firmly believe that God allowed this election result because more people could be awakened to what is really evil in this way. Thus, many more people will be inclined to repent and FINALLY understand that God’s ways are far better than our own ways. It is the very MERCY and wisdom of the Father that allows it.

I think Paul's line about being saved as if through fire applies.

Certainly God can bring good out of this evil. Certainly he permitted us to follow “the devices and desires of our own hearts.”

It's hard for me to think about his will, though Isaiah has “I create weal and I create woe,” and Amos asks “Can there be evil in the city and I have not done it?”

But, well, Ezekiel 7 is on my mind a lot these past few days. We have profaned the temple ... of our bodies if no other temple. Ichabod ... the glory may depart for a while, the Shekinah may remove itself to the east. It's all too much for me to achieve coherence.

But I DO agree with you that many will now see what the reality of their political fantasies and whims truly is. And maybe there will be a third great awakening for this country.
