Jeremiah 1:10 (KJV) 10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
As God’s appointed messengers, we are part of God’s supreme authority and work. He has the power to establish or destroy any nation, kingdom, or entity. As His representatives or spokespeople, we partake of that divine authority and power to do the same. Let’s be clear about it; by ourselves, there’s nothing we can do. It’s God Who works in and through us to do great exploits.
God in His foreknowledge initiated everything for us to be found in this honored position of authority—reigning with our precious Lord Jesus Christ in heavenly places. Young and old, rich and poor, men and women, boys and girls, people of all races, tribes, and nations—we all lovingly and boldly go out without trepidation, we face whoever the person, whatever the nation, whatever the situation. Again, it’s because we know that God watches over us, is in us, and is always with us.
There comes a time when a nation continuously rebels and fights against God—the very Power Who birthed them. There comes a time when our voice seems suppressed and we are the enemy. This doesn’t change our reality: God is our strength. He is our fortress. He’s our impenetrable Shield; we’re always protected. So we speak against the evils of a nation—before the rulers, before the “influencers.” They don’t like us; they attack us, but we remain—strong, fearless, steadfast, unmoved. Why? It’s because God never fails; He takes care of us, and will never stop doing so.
