Read Daniel 8 today.

This chapter includes another of Daniel’s visions.
Like many other people, I have wondered why God’s response to the evil around us often seems restrained. There have been workers of evil (notorious sinners) all around me. And rather than squashing them like bugs (which is what I thought they deserved), God let them live. For a time, they even seemed to thrive. Why?
Then, I consider what would have been if God’s response to some of my foolishness in earlier days had been unrestrained.
God’s response to my sinfulness has consistently been mercy (not getting what I deserved) and grace (getting what I did not deserve). Dare I suggest to God that I alone am worthy of His mercy and grace?
I may not always understand why or when God chooses to act, but my choice is to trust God, even when my understanding is limited.
Daniel 8:10-14 NLT
Its power reached to the heavens, where it attacked the heavenly army, throwing some of the heavenly beings and some of the stars to the ground and trampling them. [11] It even challenged the Commander of heaven’s army by canceling the daily sacrifices offered to him and by destroying his Temple. [12] The army of heaven was restrained from responding to this rebellion. So the daily sacrifice was halted, and truth was overthrown. The horn succeeded in everything it did.
[13] Then I heard two holy ones talking to each other. One of them asked, “How long will the events of this vision last? How long will the rebellion that causes desecration stop the daily sacrifices? How long will the Temple and heaven’s army be trampled on?”
[14] The other replied, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the Temple will be made right again.”
