Weather Report From Heaven: Sunny and bright, with an abundance of light and lots of singing and rejoicing.

Scripture: “Therefore, you kings, be wise;  be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear  and celebrate his rule with trembling.” Psalm 2:10-11

Insight: We can learn so much from the Biblical Heroes like King David, who is the only person in the Bible ever referred to as “a man after God’s own heart,” Acts 13:22. God led David through a myriad of different circumstances that tested his faith, grew him,challenged him and led him to become the greatest King of Israel and the human bloodline out of which Jesus himself was born. Therefore, we just should pay close attention to the life of David recorded in the Bible and try to learn as much as we can from him and apply it to our lives in a practical way. We will study some of the Scriptures over the next 30 days that David wrote and see how his life is a great teaching moment for us today. David was a man who sought after God with great intensity and spent much time in His presence. David knew he couldn’t make the decisions he needed to make, or lead the Nation of Israel the way they needed to unless he was relying on God’s power, strength and wisdom. 

David understood that all his power was temporary and limited and that God was in full control, and He alone chooses when to raise up leaders and when to bring them down. David remained humble despite his power and authority because he recognized and respected the fact that God was in control at all times. God brings rulers to power and he can remove them just as quickly. We are all to remember that He has ultimate authority and He alone is to be feared. Today, many Countries are suffering under poor leadership and some under downright evil leadership. But God uses all circumstances for His purposes, and if He allows someone to assume a position of power, it is ultimately to be used for His good. Isaiah 55:8-9 says ““For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” This verse is so critical to remember as it relates to people in positions of leadership. We may not see the big picture that God sees and we must simply trust He will use all situations and all leaders for His ultimate good, which is always for the growth of His Eternal Kingdom.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, help us to remember that You raise leaders up and You set leaders down, and it is always for your glory and the growing of your Kingdom. Amen!
