Daniel 4:17 – Who has the power?03-04-2020 - Posted by Andre Piet
…to the intent that the living may know that the Supreme is in authority in the kingdom of the mortals, and He gives it to whomsoever He will and He sets up over it a lowly one of mortals.
Democracy means: the people rule. She decides who her government leaders are … she thinks. In reality, the people themselves are a plaything of countless factors that they are not aware of.
Scripture says that peoples are considered for GOD as a drop on the bucket and as a dust on the scales. It does not carry any significant weight. And if that is true for all nations together, what is a single individual among so many billions of people ?!
It is the HIGHEST who gives kingship to whom He will. And even the lowest of them He puts in that position. Isn’t that striking ?! It is usually not the best and most qualified who are at the helm. Because a big mouth, a lot of money or a lot of votes do not necessarily guarantee high-quality policy. Are you concerned about that? Or do you thank GOD that He is controlling everything? Only then will you know the secret of “a mild and quiet life” (1 Tim.2: 2).
