Sometimes, we see or hear of rulers who are evil and wicked, and we wonder how God can allow them to be in charge of a country or region. The fact is, God is in charge and, eventually, evil rulers will answer for the terrible things they’ve done.
So many times, rulers get into office by deceiving people, and in the case of monarchies they get there for no reason other than their bloodlines. With regard to leaders, I am not a fan of deception, or monarchies. I believe a ruler of any kind has to be a leader, and leaders—in my opinion—are not born, they are developed, and they do not need to deceive in order to achieve a leadership role.
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. Proverbs 21:1
