“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.” (Prov. 21:1)
The real God, Yahweh, is sovereign. Even in the book of Daniel, I realize that He is even in control of wicked kings’ hearts for the purpose of judgment in bringing His people into a right relationship with Him. Thank You, Lord.
And like Daniel’s day, many Christians in nations like America, France, England, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and more have turned away from Yahweh and are suffering the consequences. Christian persecution is on the rise due to Islam and we, as Christians, must turn to our Lord, Christ, and His righteousness to be saved. Lord, help us to humble ourselves, pray, and seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, so that we may be saved.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
