“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.”
Believe it or not there is a King in heaven in charge of everything. He rules the kingdoms of this earth. He raises up one leader and removes another. HE is in charge, he rules the Universe…every molecule of it.
HE is King.
Then why are we afraid? Why are we fighting over this politician or that one? None of them can help us. None of them can fix our problems. They are just men placed there by God.
Why are we so angry, so afraid? Why all the frustration, the name calling?
Is there a God in heaven or not?
If there is a God who rules then trust him.
If there isn’t then you aren’t fearful enough!
I’m saddened by what I see in the Christian world as “Christians” verbalize their fears in the public forums as if a man will be our solution. Why do we trust in man? Even David wrote of the foolishness of trusting in the strength of men.
Like Daniel, I’m so glad there is a sovereign and he does not rule from Washington or any other city. He rules from heaven!
One of the worst kings of all time said this about that God, words that came after God humbled him,
To the nations and peoples of every language, who live in all the earth:
May you prosper greatly!
It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me.
How great are his signs,
how mighty his wonders!
His kingdom is an eternal kingdom;
his dominion endures from generation to generation.
“The Most High God”
There is a ruler over the affairs of man.
Oh that we would trust him and rest in his care.
He is in charge of everything, even who rules this little nation of ours.
