Romans 13:1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
Throughout Old Testament history, God allowed oppressive leaders to control His chosen people in order to bring them back to Him. In a message from a source I do not recall, I heard that one should ask themselves , when they are facing trials of any kind, “What is God trying to teach me through this?”
If you are struggling with the direction of current events, that may be a good question to ask ourselves.
