Do the plans and purposes of God hang by thin threads? Although they often appear to, thy actually never do. The hand of divine providence is both sure and unstoppable. God's predestined plans and purposes are inevitable. No angel in Heaven, no devil in Hell, and no man on earth can thwart them.


If you listen to our present-day press and politicians, you will be led to believe that the whole future of America will be determined today by who Georgians punch their ballots for, either Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue or Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Who knew that Georgians possessed such power? Who knew that the likes of Loefler, Perdue, Ossoff, and Warnock were captains of our country's fate?


Contrary to popular opinion, the invisible hand of divine providence, not Georgia voters nor senatorial candidates, will determine America's destiny. Even today's runoff election in Georgia will not escape the parameters of God's preordained plans and purposes. According to the Bible, men may cast lots, but the decision determined by men’s casted lots is not determined by luck, but by the Lord (Proverbs 16:33). It’s not, as it may seem, a mere matter of chance, but of divine providence. Likewise, Georgians may cast ballots, but the decision determined by their casted ballots will ultimately be Christ’s decision, not the voters’ decision. 


Our nation is in the hands of God, not in the hands of voters nor politicians they elect to political office. When it comes to elected politicians, their hearts, like those of ancient kings, are like rivers of water in the hands of divine providence, which God turns in whatever direction He chooses (Proverbs 21:1). Now, before you take comfort in this Biblical truth, remember that God used the hardheartedness of Egypt’s Pharaoh, as well as the Egyptians themselves, to judge and destroy Egypt, the most glorious kingdom in the ancient world. Similarly, God can use the hardheartedness of American voters and the politicians they elect to political office to judge and destroy our country, the most glorious nation in today’s world.


I don’t know what the outcome of today’s runoff election in Georgia will be. What I do know is that God’s judgment of our God-forsaking nation is imminent. Whether today’s election will provide us with a little divine reprieve before it falls upon us or whether it will be used by God to accelerate its inevitable execution remains to be seen. Regardless of the divinely orchestrated outcome, one thing is sure, judgment is certainly coming. Don’t be deceived, God will not be mocked; what our God-forsaken country has sown, we will soon reap (Galatians 6:7). Furthermore, there is no firewall that can finally forestall it!
