TRUST #6: Trust God's Decision on Leaders

Tomorrow is President's Day, a federal holiday here in the United States. While it is normally a day to remember our first elected president (Washington), and also our 16th President (Lincoln), it is also a time to reflect on ALL of our presidents (including our current one).

I don't discuss politics much because... well...  I just don't like it. Its just not an interest of mine. However, I do believe it is important to be respectful to the leaders we have in place, even if I don't agree with what they do. According to Romans 13:1, those who are in leadership are there ONLY because God instituted it. Yes, I did my part and I voted for who I thought would be the better leader. We all NEED to do our part. However, ultimately, I know the person who wins each election wins it because that is who GOD wants to have in office. 

So, even if the leaders in place completely destroy our country, I choose to TRUST that, yes, GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. Our country may end up lying in ruins - and in some ways it already is - but I believe my God has a plan, and He is using each situation to accomplish that plan. 

So, what do we do when things aren't going the way we want, or the way we think they should go? Pray. Pray for the president and for those who give him counsel. Pray for him to have wisdom in leading our country to the best of his ability. Pray for him to accomplish the plans the Lord has laid out for him to do. Then, TRUST that even in the chaos God's got it all under control.
