A Reminder on Election Night

As we sit and watch the developments on this year’s election, sometimes it is easy to be surprised by the results. However, we must remember that there is no surprise in the throne room of God. He is not watching the television in amazement, wondering how it has come to this. God sees the end from the beginning. (Is 46:9-10, “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”)
We can rest in the fact that God has everything under His divine control.  How sweet to know that the God of the universe is intimately familiar with the details of our lives and has planned the end from the beginning.  (Proverbs 5:21, “The ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He pondereth all his goings”)
