Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water; He turns it to any place He will.
In this text, the heart of the king is described as a water stream that the Lord our God controls. It is God who directs the flow of man’s heart wherever He pleases.
Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
The heart of every king, good or evil, every man, woman, boy or girl is fully known by God.
Believing that God is all knowing may be a hard pill for many of you to swallow based on what you see happening in the world and in some of our homes, families, etc.
God turns the world around daily, He directs all the world affairs as He pleases. He allows whatever He wants to happen for His purpose.
Remember Job? Permission had to be sought from God for satan to attack him. What is my point? God is in control!!
What the writer of this text is trying to get all of us to understand is that "God rules over man." Yes, Almighty God has total rule over the heart of men, including kings.
Fearful about the future of our nation? Fear not! Only believe and trust God.
Remember Pharaoh? The bible declares that the Lord harden his heart against God's People Israel and it was the Lord that freed them out of Egyptian bondage too.
People of God, let us daily make prayers of intercession on behalf of our leaders, kings and those that are in authority, knowing that God can and does direct their hearts and decisions.
Nothing is too hard for our God. He is bigger than any and everything! He is supreme in authority, power and might. All Sufficient God!
Be encouraged on today for the Lord God is still at the steering wheel of every one of our lives.
My point on today is this: GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. LOOK NOT AT WHAT YOU SEE BUT LOOK AT, READ AND UNDERSTAND WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS.
It is the Word of God that is final authority in the earth. God's Word SHALL do what He sends it to accomplish.
