The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.__ Proverbs 21:1-2
Every born-again believer can take comfort in the sovereignty that God is the final authority and all authority comes from God.
And Our Loving Father has carefully orchestrated a plan for each of us including those persons placed in authority over us. Whether the authority is competent or not, just or unjust, civil or familial__ God has designed a covering for us, an authority whose heart is in His hand.
We have nothing to fear because all Authority is ultimately controlled by Our Sovereign God. God’s Loving heart limits the rod of pain and God’s faithful hand dispenses ample grace.
