The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
Proverbs 21. 1
Whether we complain about Donald Trump or Justin Trudeau, we must always remember that it is God who controls their dealings and decisions. It is God who compels them to make the laws they do. If either man decides to outlaw Christianity, it is because God put it in his heart to do so.
And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Regardless how anyone votes. Whether Christians think they need to vote or not. Whether Christians think they need to run in politics in order to “make a difference”, it is sovereign God who decides who get in and who loses.
If I decide or you decide not to vote, doesn’t make one bit of difference to God. His plans are written, decided and unmovable from the beginning of time to the end of time.
Now if you continue to gripe and complain against either man, you are in essence complaining against God. We read in two places in God’s Word where sovereign God decides who comes to power and what they do and yet, you puny mortal man have the audacity to complain?
You think that you have the power to change anything?! You can no more change the course of society anymore than you can stand in front of a moving train and stop it by command!
Whether God decides to put Trump, Clinton, Trudeau or anyone else in power will be HIS decision, not ours. He will get glory out of the decision, fallout and laws made. If Christianity is outlawed and we are hunted like animals, He will still get glory. If Christians are deemed mentally incompetent and we are all locked away in a nut-house, God will still get glory.
God will raise up the exact perfect leader to do His bidding and when that leader has accomplished His plans, God will dispose of him and get another.
The quicker we accept this and submit to this truth, the more pleasing we will be to God.
