The recent release of three prisoners held by North Korea is being described as unexpected, unlikely and even miraculous.
When we look at the many successes President Trump has had in such a relatively short period of time, while fighting off so many opposing forces, this, among so many other accomplishments seem like nothing short of miraculous…and they are!
You see, nothing happens in this world without God’s oversight and permission. In fact, I believe it is God who is giving Donald Trump favor, because Donald Trump has been out front with the declaration that we are one nation under God, when he unashamedly says that in this nation “we don’t worship government; we worship God.”
Was it President Trump’s threats and actions that caused Kim Jong Un to change his hard line into a more conciliatory tone, or was it something else? The Bible tells us clearly that the heart of the king is in the hands of the Lord. He turns it like a watercourse wherever He desires.” (Proverbs 21:1). So then, could it be that Donald Trump’s public acknowledgement of God has brought God’s favor, and God, himself, is changing hearts and causing circumstances to occur that bring success to President Trump’s human efforts? I believe it is. The same God who rules in the heart of Kim Jong Un also rules in the heart of Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s courage and determination to continue to declare the sovereignty of God over our land is bolstered by the prayers of the Church.
So this is how we see the fulfillment of God’s promise working out when He said, “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray…then will I heal their land.”
It falls upon the people of God—Christians—to continue to pray for our leaders, and to do our part to understand the issues and to be participants in this government of the people. If we will be faithful to do our part I believe God will be faithful to fulfill His promise to bless our land with a peace and prosperity never before seen. We are the world’s last best hope, and we will shine as never before. Let’s be grateful to God for His favor on our President and our nation, and let that gratitude be expressed in our actions, and on our knees for the sake of our posterity and God’s glory.
