The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD;
he turns it wherever he will.
I have a prediction. I know exactly what November 9 will bring. Another day of God's sovereignty. He will still be in charge. His throne will still be occupied. he will still manage the affairs of the world. Never before has His providence depended on a king, president, or ruler. And it won't on November 9, 2016.
Understanding God's soverreignty over the nations opens the door to peace. When we realize that God influences the hearts of all rulers, we can choose to pray for them rather than fret about them. Rather than wring our hands we bend our knees, we select prayer over despair.
