If you ever get worried about who is elected to public office in your country and fear for the future of your government, take heart! There is a higher place you can go with your prayers to find peace.
God’s government reigns above all human governments!
The prophet Isaiah said it well in these words:
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.” (Isaiah 9:6,7, NLT).
Political rulers and leaders come and go, but God’s government remains in place.
Human legislation may veer in one direction this decade and in another direction later, but God’s law remains fixed.
The leaven of Christ is at work throughout the entire human consciousness moving it in a spiritual direction. There may be resistance, balking, push back, and ignorance along the way, but Christ will prevail. Good will overturn all evil. God’s government will have the final say.
Above all human government, the government is in God’s hands.
