God and Politics

Politics can be dirty, divisive, and destructive. And the outcomes of elections can be shocking, painful, and depressing. But God can work through politics. Amidst the complicated interplay of human interests, raw ambitions, intrigues, and violent impulses, God’s divine hand overrules, shapes, and works through all political activities and outcomes to accomplish His purposes (Daniel 2:20, 21; 4:35). He can work even through ruthless and vain rulers as He pleases (cf. Proverbs 21:1). God doesn’t belong to any one nation, political party, or candidate. He is the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” (Philippians 2:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). That’s why, regardless of outcomes, He is the One who is ultimately and always in control.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
