Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
God actively directs His creation toward a pre-determined conclusion. Therefore, He controls all other authorities. As the psalmist Asaph wrote, "It is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another" (Psalm 75:7).
For instance, God chose to use King Nebuchadnezzar as His instrument of judgment upon Judah's wicked kings and rebellious people (2 King 24:1-4).
Nebuchadnezzar's armies seemed unstoppable as they captured a vast empire, including Jerusalem, and took most of Judah's residents into captivity in Babylon.
But when Nebuchadnezzar began to boast about what he had accomplished, God removed him from the throne until he was humbled.
Seventy years later, in keeping with God's prophecy that He would bring His captive people back to Judah, God raised up another king. As prophesied, Cyrus sent the captives back to Jerusalem to rebuild the city (Isaiah 45:13).
This was all a part of God's magnificent plan to eventually send His Son, the Messiah, who would be born of a Jewish girl living near Jerusalem.
God's work on earth is primarily of a spiritual, eternal nature. It has been said that God's master plan on earth is to make sinners sons, make sons like Jesus, and to help His sons share the good news of eternal life. Such a spiritual kingdom is in vast contrast to the material, physical, and temporal kingdom that occupies most people's efforts today.
Your View of God Really Matters …
Are you participating in God's master plan? Have you become a son? Are you becoming more like Jesus? Are you helping spread the good news so that others may become sons? What can you do to actively participate in God's master plan today?

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
