God is Sovereign; In Control
In Light of Today’s Political Environment
God Remains Sovereign!
Sovereign means supreme; preeminent; indisputable. It also means greatest in degree; utmost or extreme. Therefore, God is supreme; preeminent; indisputable; greatest in degree and utmost. He is above all of the current affairs of man. I am reminded of Daniel 2:20b-22;
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
to whom belong wisdom and might.
21 He changes times and seasons;
He removes kings and sets up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
and the light dwells with Him.”
God alone knows the outcome of our elections and He has a purpose in it. I may not like the choices set before me but as a believer, it is my duty, privilege, and honor to cast my vote. God knows my future and I know that this is not my home. At the appointed time, I will go to be with Him in heaven but for now, I am giving a task to be His ambassador to take forth the message of reconciliation. His grace is enough for me. Yet, I too often forget and begin to fret. Reading my Bible and taking time to spend time with God, He so easily reminds me that HE is in control.
My Prayer: Dear Sovereign Lord, You have the power to remove kings and set up kings. You are in control and I am to trust You in whatever comes my way. You alone know what the future holds and I am to be secure in that knowledge. Forgive me, Father, when I question You. I ask for wisdom to understand what is taking place. Amen.
