If God Can Use A Pagan King… If God Can Get A Washington-Outsider Elected… God Can Do Great Things In Our Lives

We woke up this morning to the news that Donald Trump had defeated Hillary Clinton! To say I was shocked would be an understatement!
As I worked out in the gym, a story from the Bible came to mind. In the book of Ezra, the Bible says “God moved in the heart of Cyrus.” Ok, you may be thinking, “What does that mean?” Let me give you some background.
The nations of Israel and Judah were punished and taken away into exile. They would be in exile for seventy years. They were conquered by the Babylonians but, the Persians defeated the Babylonians. After seventy years, God was going to send Israel home. So, God moved in the heart of Cyrus… a pagan king… and sent Israel home.
Think about that. God moved in the heart of a pagan king. Cyrus wasn’t concerned about the things of God. He’s a pagan! Yet, God led this pagan king to issue a decree that the people of Israel could go home.
I thought about that story as I thought about Donald Trump being elected. Let me be clear; I do not believe Donald Trump is a pagan. In fact, he has said that he’s a Christian. But, his election was a shock!
If God can use a pagan king to let his people go home… if God can get a Donald Trump, Washington-outsider, elected President… God can handle our problems.
Whatever you are facing today, know that God is able. If God can use a pagan king, God can perform miracles in our lives. We need to trust the Lord with our problems today.
