God Ordains The Location And Duration Of All Nations

Sometimes I get frustrated over the leaders of the United States Of America and the job they seem to be doing in order to destroy us.  Our allies no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us.  Our leaders are limiting our military might and global influence, harming our unity, and destroying our economy.  I could keep on going with this theme until the cows come home and I am sure you could add a lot more as well.  But then I realized I have the correct perspective only from above, so I opened my Bible and received what Paul Harvey always called:  “The rest of the story.”  Isaiah the prophet, quotes the Lord as calling the nations “a drop in the bucket.”  The Lord sets them up and takes them down.  All nations have a limited time and influence in our world and just like our individual lives, that time is eventually over.  Here is a verse that places everything into focus:  Acts 17:26  “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.”  (NKJV)  Hence whatever happens in America is within the Lord’s perfect sovereignty and plan.  We do not have to be frustrated by circumstances since absolutely nothing happens without the Father’s consent.  “The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh, blessed be the name of the Lord.”  Amen and amen…..   And He is coming, Pastor Steve
