A God Who Rules
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
That we live in a troubled, confused world is clear to everyone. Nations and leaders of nations plan and plot their own courses of action, noble and ignoble. What is oft overlooked is that the leaders are in their positions because God has allowed it.
In some cases those leaders are set directly against God. There is no regard whatsoever regarding the Creator of the universe and all that is in it. In the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 2, “Let us break their chains and throw off the fetters [of the Anointed One].” God’s response? “The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.”
Regardless of what you hear or read in the news today, the Lord is in charge and the Lord is merciful. We serve a good, gracious, and just God. Always remember what is true. Read Psalm 2. It is a warning to our leaders.
