He removes rulers and sets up rulers


“Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changeth the times and the seasons; He removeth kings and setteth up kings. He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.” Daniel 2:20-21

It is the LORD God, the possessor of wisdom and might, who gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those with understanding. He also removes rulers and sets up rulers. He does so for His own purposes, often not known to man. Rulers can be for a blessing upon His people or for judgment upon a people who have turned away from the LORD and His Word and have rejected His wisdom and understanding.

O all-wise God, grant that we trust in You and accept Your judgments, for we know that You work all things for the good of those who trust in Your name. Amen.
