40天禱告 第21天:为地上的掌权者祷告

Proverbs 21:1-2

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turns it however he will.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord ponders the hearts.”

God controls the mighty rivers and the hearts of kings. He knows the direction a man’s thoughts will take him before he takes his first step. Have you sought the heart of God today as you consider what direction you will go?

Daniel 2: 20, 21

“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

And he changes the times and the seasons: he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.”

Daniel was the wisest among all the wise men of Babylon, yet he knew where to go when seeking wise counsel. When God instructed him he was quick to acknowledge who was the source of all wisdom. God granted Daniel visions to see through the centuries. Through all those years he saw the hand of God over men and nations.

All things are in God’s hand. Though circumstances may at times appear to be too hard to overcome, trust your situation to the One who turns the mighty rivers and controls the hearts of kings.

Our God who sets the times of the seasons and decides the kings and leaders of nations is able to guide you through your challenges this day and beyond.

Be encouraged today. You, like Daniel before you, have a great God who works on your behalf.
