Some of the reasons that we oppose certain people and certain institutions is that we abhor change. We prefer a status quo existence. We like the feeling of control that exists when we have even a faint notion of what will happen tomorrow. It is for this reason that God's rule is fiercely opposed by some who are committed to what they believe is a self-controlled existence.
But the God of creation is a God of freedom and choices. It is he who insists that we not be enslaved, and that we be set free to worship in spirit and in truth. It also is he who insists that when the sun sets, we have the freedom to sleep or not to sleep. When God is in control of our lives, only then can we possibly enjoy true freedom. We have the freedom to think, say and do anything our heart desires. The difference is that for everything we think, say and do, we always will be fully informed of every consequence. This is the only context within which true freedom can exist.
The haphazard existence full of sad mistakes and unintended consequences is not the life God desires that we have. Only in him can we aspire to the life our hearts desire. Let God be praised and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
