I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God. Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him. Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? Ecclesiastes 8:2-4

A sovereign God may do as HE pleases, when HE pleases, how HE pleases, where HE pleases, to whom HE pleases. HE does not owe us an explanation. We cannot vote HIM in nor vote HIM out. We cannot impeach HIM. We cannot force HIM to do our will. HE is not intimidated by us. HE does not tremble at our collective measly might. HE is not confounded by our combined meager knowledge and limited understanding.
It is best for us to simply trust HIM. Submit fully to HIS will as we pray, “THY will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.” And even as HE allows things we understand not, let us not get beside ourselves and try to act as God, and impose our woeful will but just purely let HIM be God knowing HE’s still in control and all things are working together for our good to them that love HIM. And if HE’s still in control let us show that we know this by seeking and obeying HIS will for the lives HE has given us, knowing we have a day coming where we shall give an account to HIM of our actions, beliefs, and communication.
