LEADER OF NATIONS
Romans 13:1″ Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
The Scene: Flags of many nations.
Christians are told in God’s Word to follow godly leaders–pray for godly leaders. that they will be led of God, in righteousness, who will lead the nations in righteousness.
God is the creator of nations, good and bad.
Daniel 4:17 ” The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.”
God first chose the leaders, like Moses, Joshua, Abraham; the kings of the 12 tribes of Israel, good and bad leaders, like Saul, David, Solomon; later world leaders, like Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan, of the USA; Germany’s Hitler, Stalin of the USSR.
In Good and bad nations God has His children.
Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule the people groan.”
God promises He will take care of His own. We are called to follow after righteousness no matter what evil people are planning or doing. We are to trust in Almighty God.
James 1:2 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds.”
We are called to wait and see what great things He, the Almighty, will do.
