God is still on the throne and reigns supreme over everything. In every situation, he has the final say. This is why, according to Proverbs 21:1, "the king's heart is in the Lord's hands, like rivers of water; he turns it wherever he likes." In some places, the king is the highest authority. He is the king of kings and the lord of lords in that land, but God is the king of kings and the lord of lords. He has the ability to manipulate any king's heart to accomplish his will.
In the Bible, he demonstrates this on multiple occasions. Egypt's Pharaoh, Darius, Nebuchadnezzar, and Ahasuerus are just a few examples. As a result, we have faith that no one is too powerful for God to alter. How much more can God get regular men to do his bidding if he can get kings to do it? All we have to do now is stand firm in our prayers.
"Every man's way is right in his own eyes," says the Bible, "but the Lord weighs the purposes of the heart." Many crimes are perpetrated as a result of this. Every guy justifies his actions based on his ideas and reaps the rewards of whatever he does. A heart that has been regenerated by the word of God, on the other hand, will use the principles of scripture and the prompting of the Holy Spirit as his own yardstick. Who can realize that even the heart is deceitful above all things? As a result, strive to be transformed by renewing your thinking in accordance with God's word. As a result, you will be able to accurately assess your ideas and actions.
Furthermore, "doing justice and righteousness is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice" (verse 3). God places a higher importance on our interpersonal relationships with others than on our regular attendance at church and other religious activities. Our Christianity must be such that people read our character as the bible. From verses 4 through 14, a list of attitudes and behaviors unbecoming of a Christian is given. We can't claim to be Christians if we don't have compassion in our lives. We are hypocrites if we turn a blind eye to the poor and needy when we have the ability to aid them. We delude ourselves if we are quarrelsome, tell lies, defraud, and engage in a variety of substandard practices and concealed sins.
God expects us to be righteous on the inside and out, not to pay lip respect, make offerings, or put on a religious show. In Jesus' name, Amen, let this thought lead us through this work week so that we can reflect the true light of the Gospel wherever we are.
