Prov. 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
The first time I heard this verse was from Chuck Swindoll in 1975 as he was teaching through the book of Nehemiah. It taught me that the Lord is in charge of the authorities in my life. It caused me to pray more for those in authority over us. It helped me trust that God was working out His magnificent plan in all the earth and in my life. How do you view those in authority over you? Do you pray for them? Do you realize that their hearts are in the hand of the Lord? God can and will direct them wherever He pleases. Keep praying. Keep trusting.
