Proverbs Challenge (Day 21)

Welcome to Day 21 of the Proverbs Challenge! I don’t know about you, but these last three weeks have flown by, and before you know it, this challenge will end!

Today, the very first verse struck a cord with me, and so, I am going to write on Proverbs 21:1

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.”

Proverbs 21:1

My Thoughts: In today’s world, we can get so worried about the people in power. We fret over Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings or Queens, and yet, we forget Who is sat on the actual Throne

When Solomon wrote the book of Proverbs, in his day, Kings possessed absolute power in the nations and were often considered to be like gods

Yet, this Proverb shows that God, not earthly rulers has ultimate authority over world politics

Even if these people don’t realise it, the earth’s most powerful Kings have ALWAYS been under God’s control

My Reflection: God will accomplish His plans in History – despite if every nation rejects Him

God did not create the world and then leave it up to us! Therefore, we need to remember that God is still in complete control, today, even in this ever-changing world

Also, although humanity has free will, there is nothing that will happen that God does not know about. He is not shocked by events that occur, and therefore, let’s remember, that although the decisions made may not have been “His will” for our lives, He will always use events for His ultimate Glory!

God has the Victory

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
