Oftentimes, folks may not like the governmental leaders who are over them. Yet, that only brings out a biblical truth – God is the one who installs the leaders. Sure, our nation is one where we get to vote on who our leaders will be. But ultimately, God is working out His plan and determines who the leaders will be. And, God often gives a nation the leaders they deserve, not necessarily who they want.
Romans 13:1 “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”
So, this truth tells me at least one thing: If we are discontented with our current leadership and the trajectory of our nation, there is more involved than simply letting our voice be heard at the ballot box. It also requires a change of heart. Because, based upon our nation’s moral atmosphere and relationship with the God of all Creation, God will give us exactly who we deserve.
There are certainly more than a few who are discontented with our nation’s leadership and the direction our nation is heading. But, there remains other questions: What are you doing to change our nation’s heart? Are you sharing the Gospel? Are you returning good for evil? Are you being salt and light in your communities? Are you praying for your nation and her leaders?
If not, don’t worry about the leadership. God will take care of that. We’ll get exactly who we deserve.
