In the world which we live there are times when we could start to wonder whether or not God is in control but the fact is that He is in control now, was in control in the past, and will be in control in the future. There were some who had that same thought during the life of the prophet Isaiah, but He shut all that down when He prophesied (Isa: 9:6) “For unto us a son is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” And we who are believers have seen this prophecy come to fruition in the life of Jesus Christ. Hence, we know that our God, the Lord Jesus Christ is still in control today to the degree that the Government is upon His shoulders.
God understands exactly what’s going on. God is not surprised by the leaders He has in place, because He knew they would be there from the beginning of time. Thus, because the government is upon His shoulders we can trust that everything in government, everything in leadership is going to be alright. The believers charge is pray for our government officials and trust that the one who is a wonderful counselor, the one who is the mighty God, the one who is the everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace might have the opportunity to speak to a leaders heart and direct him/her in how they should lead because leadership on any level is never an easy job.
God Bless You
