NationBuilding: The Choice of a Leader

1 Samuel  12:13 Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.

The Choice of a Leader
It is always in the nature of a people to ask for a king and it is always in the jurisdiction of God to grant their request.
There is nothing like an ungoverned state. All through history there has always been a dire need for  leadership no matter the form and this above all must come about by the choice of the people. However in all these, across all civilization there is always the important God factor.
God always rule in the affairs of men. This is why for every great civilization there is a visible hand of God since He is a God of order, It tells me He is interested in Leadership.
Imagine for a second there is no such thing as leadership, there will be utter disorderliness. The societal structures will degrade into total anarchy. This will eventually spell doom for humanity and there will be no advancement of any form.
God had order in mind by upholding leadership in every institution, be it from the most basic institution marriage, to the wider society. This is why when a society craves for a leader, God honors their request based on their own choice.
This is the  reason why a great people has got to make a great choice in leadership because this eventually affects and determines the course of the whole nation on their journey to greatness.
In the country where I live, Nigeria in West Africa, these are very crucial times where the people's choice will count, as we are less than a week to the election date, my charge to everyone is to pray that God be involved in this process, and that every eligible voter exercise his or her voting rights on Saturday 28th of March, 2015. When you vote for the candidate of your choice, you can then wait for God's will to be done.
Let God's will be done,
