How did this happen to America? My heart was so heavy after the election results that I couldn’t sleep well and early in the morning I went to my source of comfort, my Bible. I asked God to give me something that would refresh my spirit. I was led to Psalm 73. I urge you who are sick at heart, as I am about the election results, to read the whole Psalm. One thing I will share here is verse 16, “When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God.” Another is verse 26, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever”. And verse 28, “But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all Your deeds”.
We, who know the Bible, know that no leader is elected or appointed unless God allows it, and in some cases that is very difficult to understand.
So today, in spite of the earthly circumstances that seem very discouraging, I pray that we who “trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding” will use this time to aggressively further His kingdom here on earth. I pray that this will be the catalyst for a great revival in America!
