The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will. Proverbs 21:1

We understand the image used to explain how the will of the king is directed by the Lord. When considering the outcome of the election, we must keep this truth in mind. For our comfort, but also for our instruction. For our comfort, we learn that we are not tossed by political flavours one or the other way, but guided by our faithful God and Father. For our instruction, we learn that we must respect those in authority over us, since it is God’s will to govern us by their hand. As always, the beauty of a Christian is not directed by his environment, but it directs his environment.
