God’s Sovereignty over the Nations

Concern and even fear grip many hearts as ISIS murders helpless people, Greece and Venezuela teeter on the brink of economic Armageddon, and Russia and China are daring other countries to stop their aggressiveness. In times like this it is crucial to understand God’s perspective of history and His control of world events.

Isaiah 40:15-16 tells us how He views even powerful nations: “The nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales . . . all the nations are as nothing before Him [the Lord], they are regarded by Him as less than nothing and meaningless.”

Acts 17:26 makes it clear who is in complete control. “The Lord . . . . scattered the nations across the face of the earth. He decided beforehand which should rise and fall and when. He determined their boundaries” (TLB).

We can experience God’s peace when we embrace a loving God who is control of every event.
