Our God is sovereign!
Not just in principle, but also in practice.
With Trump’s victory in the US., I hear christians declaring that Trump must be God’s Will, because God is sovereign.
The question then arises: If God is all knowing, all powerful, ever present, and good; why is there evil in the world?
Well, I submit to you that Trump like any leader in a democratic process is the will of the people, not necessarily God’s.
Therefore, our leaders are portraits of the values we hold dear as a people.
So, today I will be treating The Problem of Evil, and Free Will.
We continue in the strength of our theme for 2016: Our Year of Plenty (Gen 41:46-49), as we plant seeds of prayers, prophetic declaration, and thanksgiving for 2017 (Our Year of Restoration).
We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions:
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2
