Power Greater Than That of Kings

When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it, they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings: “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.”Psalm 105:12-15

Do we Christians feel outnumbered in today's world? Do we feel as though we are strangers living in our land, while ridicule and disrespect are heaped upon us, because we hold to God's principles, rather than the ever-changing laws of men? These verses convince me that this is nothing new – these things were happening to God's people thousands of years ago as they wandered the desert, waiting to enter the Promised Land.

Yet, we see that God still reigns over all. No earthly power can overcome Him, if He chooses to protect us from harm – “for their sake he rebuked kings”. God's power is always there, and sometimes He uses it to turn the will of kings and presidents in order to protect His people. I pray that God looks over our nation today and will choose to exercise His power in this way.
