On January 30, 1835, outside the U.S. Capitol Building, a would-be assassin, Richard Lawrence, fired a pistol at President Andrew Jackson at point blank range. The gun misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol and again fired at the president. Miraculously, the second pistol also misfired, and Andrew Jackson walked away unharmed. The pistols were later examined, tested, and re-tested, and they were found to be in perfect working order. You may agree or disagree with Jackson’s performance as president, however, clearly it was not yet time for him to leave office!
“Our God, your name will be praised forever and forever.
You are all-powerful, and you know everything.
You control human events—You give rulers their power and take it away,
and you are the Source of wisdom and knowledge.”
Daniel 2:20-21 (CEV)
“ . . . God Most High is in control of all earthly kingdoms and . . . He is the one who chooses their rulers.”
Daniel 4:32 (CEV)
