Yesterday’s presidential election was, I believe, a display of the mercy of God and a direct answer to the millions who gave hours to effective, fervent prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:17). God heard our cries, and our nation has been delivered, this time, from four or more years of a pagan, ungodly, anti-Christ government, national agenda. It was as though we were in Daniel’s shoes as he prayed for the city of Jerusalem and Israel, O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name (9:19), God intervened once again.
What rejoicing is wrought when God answers from His Holy Throne in mercy, grace and victory! Yesterday, the election results were the buzz. But, I have to be honest with you. I am scratchin’ my head at something. To watch God work in such a powerful way, in such a way that left many in disbelief, I am at a loss to explain why our churches were not filled to capacity last night with the people of God from everywhere praising the Lord in song, testimony, praise and MORE PRAYER. Quite frankly, I am perplexed.
After the Exodus and the crossing of the Red Sea, the people of Israel gathered to sing the song of the redeemed (Exodus 15) in praise for God’s deliverance. A parallel passage to Exodus 15 is found in Isaiah 12 which has an eschatological tone of millennial praise! What a day that will be for the nation of Israel and us! Seems like to me that the hymn of praise recorded in Isaiah should have been the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart (Psalm 19:14) last night in prayer and praise gatherings across this land!!
Still scratchin’ my head this morning.

I’m scratchin’ my head too but I tend to see both candidates as reflective of the judgment of God on the old USA. fst

Thank you for your comment. For whatever it’s worth, I am not a fan of President-Elect Donald Trump. Interesting thing though, God does not have to judge America. All He has to do is let us have our own way, and like Israel, we will destroy ourselves. I do believe that God heard and answered the cries of millions who prayed for against unrighteousness.
I awoke at 2 a.m. yesterday morning to the news that the election was going to Trump and words of praise and Thank You Lord came out of my mouth. Over and over, thank you Jesus!! I believe the election results were a direct answer to our prayers, whether prayed in church or from our homes. Still praising the Lord today and hope everyone will continue to pray for our leaders and for revival in the USA!
