“Let The Name of God be blessed forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him. It is He who changes the times and epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding; it is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him” (Daniel 2:20-21, NASB).
Many of you, just as I, are amazed at the presidential campaigns currently being conducted. Likewise, many of us are praying for God’s wisdom to know how to vote. It appears that neither candidate is qualified to hold the office of president. But, because we have an election process that is being followed, the decision will be decided November 8… so far as man is concerned.
So far as God is concerned, He changes the times and epochs (periods) and removes kings (presidents) and establishes kings (presidents). Even though He has given us a role to play in a free democracy, He is still the Sovereign God who has all wisdom and power. There is nothing about either of our presidential candidates that God does not know. We have only to look at the party platforms and the running mates to discern which “governance” is closest to God’s word. Character of candidates certainly matters, but the character and over-riding wisdom and power of God matters much more.
May God have mercy on us, expose the nation’s deeds of darkness and cause the glorious gospel of Christ to shine upon us (II Cor. 4:3-6). Oh, how we desperately need revival in the church and awakening in the nation!
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
