All Inhabitants Are Reputed as Nothing - Daniel 4:35
Nations are vulnerable! At any moment, the Lord could raise up a new nation or destroy one that currently exists. Military might, a sound economy, a good job market, and great leadership will offer no resistance when once the Lord has set His mind against a nation. According to Daniel 4:35, "all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he [the Lord] doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?" The Lord does whatsoever pleases Him (Psalm 135:6). At any point He could lead "princes away spoiled" or overthrow "the mighty" (Job 12:19).
(For smaller children) Our God is in the heavens. Even though He is in the heavens, He rules the earth as He desires (Job 12:23; Psalm 115:3; Isaiah 40:17-18, 22-25; Isaiah 46:9-10).
How much stock do you put in the security offered you by the nation in which you live? Do you fail to trust the Lord because of the current strength of your nation?
Read Proverbs 21:1 and 1 Chronicles 29:12. How do these verses demonstrate the power God has over the nation in which you live? What could God do to your country over night?
- Beg God for the life of your country.
- Ask the Lord to strengthen your faith in Him alone.
