Will America get what they want?!

I haven't blogged about the presidential race at all! Mostly because I am just tired of it all, aren't you! I am so looking forward to it being over! That being said, a passage of scripture has been on my mind this week. It is from the book of Numbers and deals with the Israelites grumbling about how bad they have it in the desert! They were remarking that they had it so much better in Egypt! This always cracks me up! They were slaves who were continually having things taken away from them to make it harder for them because Pharaoh kept seeing how God would bless them with numbers! He was afraid of them so he made them work all the harder! But what the Israelites had back in Egypt, at least so they thought was MEAT! In the desert they had MANNA from Heaven! So what do they do COMPLAIN!
Numbers 11: 18-20
"Tell the people: 'Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The LORD heard you when you wailed, "If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!" Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will eat it. You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, but for a whole month—until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it—because you have rejected the LORD, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, "Why did we ever leave Egypt?" ' "
The whole chapter is wonderful, but this is the part that I've been thinking on! So my question to you all is: Is America about ready to get what they are asking for? And if we are, be prepared to get your fill!

Oh that's great! I've had some OT scriptures on my mind in regard to the election, but that's a new one!

I so hope not, because my dear friend as a whole America is asking God to go away and leave them alone. If they get what they are asking for, we are gonna be in big trouble. Those of us who believe, we really need to start praying more fervently then ever, and we really need to do more to get out there and show the world what they really need more than anything is God's love.

I haven't posted about the election either and have been thinking about how I would put my thoughts into words if I did. You are right about America being like the Israelites!

I've been praying about this for quite some time now and some days I just don't know. I also have to take my mind away from it all and do something that I find relaxing. Reading, gardening, my daughters and oh there is enough to keep me busy. That's all I got to say about that.....Kae

I have not blogger about it either. All I know is if a certain someone gets in, hold on to your boot straps it's going to be a rough ride.

I hold onto to the fact, none of this takes God by surprise. And whoever gives in is His chosen one.

Thanks for sharing.

What comforts me is knowing that no matter what, God has appointed this time and allowed it to take place to further His work.

Still hard to watch though.
