Handiwork of God goes beyond man's abilities; utilizing whosoever He will to institute His ways. America was on the slippery slope of ungodliness; which is a threat to the moral security of any nation, and its continued longevity. This reckless endangerment could have done great harm until the seemingly impossible came into focus.
The apostle Paul wrote: For you see (or consider) your calling, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound (or put to shame) the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base (or insignificant) things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things that are not, to bring to nought (or nothing) things that are (1 Corinthians 1:26-28).
America has steadily been alienating itself from God; through a political agenda that was seemed impossible to defeat. Such a process could have continued unabated had not the handiwork of God been instituted. Those who would have continued such a trend had their ego deflated; along with others, who helped promote their agenda.
Prior to the crucifixion of Christ; the chief priests and others, identified by some as the politicians of that day, cried out: Away with him, crucify him. Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar (John 19:15). This was a remarkable reply! They apparently felt so threatened by the one who was upsetting their agenda that they were willing to make a blasphemous statement as to who was their king!
We have had a ruling class that has led this nation down a pathway contrary to God's Word; contrary to what was envisioned by our forefathers. Such was of an ungodly and destructive nature; which would have continued had not divine intervention taken place.
It was seemingly an impossible task; to upset the continuation of man's devious intentions. However, that which seemed impossible miraculously became a reality. Many were stunned because they were so glued to the one who would have continued the ungodliness that had infiltrated the land. A person who openly championed the immoral issues of our day; promising a continuation!
Those in Jesus' day were so intent on keeping their agenda intact that they were willing to accept Caesar as King; whose dominance and rule they detested. They were so set on ridding the personage of Jesus; a threat to their status quo, that they committed themselves to Caesar.
It has been disturbing that many have been consuming their own form of Caesar; in order to keep their ungodly agenda afloat. There are now many such individuals who realize they are no longer in the Driver's Seat.
Scripture reveals: The Lord brings the counsel of the heathen (or nations) to nought: he makes the devices (or plans) of the people of none effect (Psalms 33:10). America was headed down the slippery slope of ungodliness that had seemingly no end until the handiwork of God opened a pathway for change.
America, and other once godly nations, have seen a swarm of evils, the casting aside of God's Word, ungodliness, and the like; with an attempt to override godliness. It has brought nothing to the table accept unrest, violence, turmoil; with little peace. Let us pray that God will continue to be in the "Drivers Seat;" instead of man, and America will once again proudly proclaim itself as "One Nation under God!"
