Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

God's Providence Among The Nations, Part 2 of 2 (God And The Nations)

March 11, 2021

As we wrestle with the mystery of God’s hidden will, we must acknowledge His sovereign control of history. Sometimes He uses the bad guys to judge the good guys. While God’s providence may seem to be counterproductive or even against our desires, we must trust that He loves us and has our best in mind. Do you trust His purposes to be right—no matter what?

Some think random chance dictates what happens on planet earth. But believers have this perspective: The Bible reveals God as more than just a bystander. He actively determines the fates of nations. God superintends what we consider history; and ultimately nations rise and fall at God’s will.

Origins are important and that’s why God recorded the beginnings of human history in the book of Genesis. Here we find out where we came from as members of the world's nations, descendants of three of Noah’s sons. But why did God scatter the nations? What was God’s purpose in dispersing the people throughout the earth?

Terrorism. Famines. Assassinations. What does God have to do with the events we read about in our newspaper? When things seem to slip out of control, don't forget this: The God who made the nations is moving them into position for the climax of this present age.

As radical Islam partners with the radical left in America, the net effect is the ultimate destruction of all we hold dear. These are perilous times, and we must be determined to not be silenced. Will we compromise or confront this problem?

Incalculable damage is being done to the next generation as our kids are sexualized at ever younger ages. Hitler said, "he who owns the children owns the future." Today's culture knows this. That's why they create sexual confusion, control local education, and compel allegiance to the transgender, gay, and socialist agendas.

The American ideal of free speech is in tatters. Now, it's only free if you agree with the mainstream media. Freedom is in mortal danger even when we worship, as police knock on church doors like they did in Nazi Germany.

The culture is too far gone to reclaim, and even the church is buying into a decaying culture. But we can still reclaim the church by turning to God in repentance and faith. We can either respond courageously to our culture’s assault on Christianity or we can fall complicit to its moral decay.

To maintain a clear conscience, we need to be vigilant against the works of darkness that may find their way into our lives. That’s why Paul told the Ephesian believers to “walk as children of light.”

Maintaining a clear conscience is not what the devil has in mind for the children of God. He tells lies in order to return us to the bondage of a defiled conscience. How can we combat those lies and walk in victory?

Making things right with someone you have wronged, or someone who has wronged you, is not easy. But when things are right, the joy overwhelms even long years of pain.
