In my struggles to comprehend and decide; it's all to easy for me to forget that God knows! God knew that this current totalitarian takeover by the Global powers of evil was planned, and he knows the nature of these plans.
And - although we are free agents whose choices are not foreknown - God had an accurate prediction of how things were likely to play-out - given the dispositions and histories of all the people (and demons) involved, and the structures of this world.
So God know what best to do about it; and that is exactly what God is doing. Now. Every moment of every day. Everywhere.
I need to remind myself that that best is, of course, Not a matter of sustaining and rectifying worldly arrangements - Not about optimising global or national peace, prosperity and comfort.
God's best efforts are directed towards my spiritual well-being and development... And yours... And every person's (we are all God's children, after all).
So, as events unfold; God is intervening and shaping events in ways large and small (mostly behind the scenes, naturally), for our ultimate, eternal, spiritual well-being.
That's what I call a comforting thought!
