By the time you see this post, the voting will probably be over. The new president will be elected. I wanted to share this guest post, however, for it reminds us of eternal truths that are relevant no matter how the election turn(ed) out and no matter who is in office.
Read and be blessed:
God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. Psalm 47:8
reigns over the entire earth. He is not just the God of the east or the
God of the west. He is the God of the north, south, east and west. The
long arm of the Lord reigns over everyone. The sun never sets on the
omnipresent shadow of our Savior Jesus. Indeed, He is the greatest in
power, high and lofty in dominion, extremely eminent in wisdom and
elevated in excellence of glory. Our God reigns, our God reigns. He
reigns in war. He reigns in peace. He reigns in crisis. He reigns in
calm. He reigns in economic catastrophe. He reigns in economic
prosperity. Our God reigns. He reigns over evil. He reigns over good. He
reigns over nations. He reigns over individuals. Our God reigns.
He reigns from His holy throne. His is not a throne soiled with
corruption and self-serving scenarios. His throne is full of grace and
truth. His throne is marked and defined by holiness. It is a throne that
has never been stained with sin, corrupted by cover-up or defiled by
injustice. God is seated on His holy throne. He never sits dismayed or
in a dilemma. God does not wring His hands in worry. He sits in
serenity, for He knows His own power and sees that His purposes will not
miscarry. He sits on a throne from where He dispenses truth and wisdom.
Therefore, approach His holy throne boldly but reverently.
God reigns over the human heart. It is here that we can submit to or
spurn the Almighty’s authority. We are wise to jettison the latter. It
is in submission to our reigning King Jesus that we come to know His
will for our lives. Obedience leads to opportunity. Because our God
reigns, He can be trusted. His rules are for our good pleasure. Christ
is not a cosmic killjoy. His rules are inviting when we are in right
relationship with our reigning King. It is when we resist Him that we
foolishly push back from His gracious guidelines. Therefore, love Him
and you will love to follow His statutes. Indeed, our God reigns in love
and holiness. It is easy to follow an unconditional lover. He reigns
Therefore, we have reason to celebrate Christ’s reign.
His kingship brings praise to our lips. Our Lord reigns. Halleluiah! We
have no real reason to worry or stress out because our God reigns. We
can put the kibosh on our complaining and murmuring because our God
reigns. We can rest in a peaceful sleep at night, not toss and turn in
distrust, because our God reigns. We can let go of control and not be
controlled because our God reigns. We can give Him our grief, sorrow,
and sin because our God reigns.
Our God reigns for the purpose
of His glory and His glory alone. It is all about Him and His eternal
aspirations. Our God reigns for righteousness’ sake. Our God reigns for
the sake of the gospel. Live like He reigns. Live free and by faith.
Tell all whom you have earned the right to tell. Your God reigns.
Validate your words with your life of faith and faithfulness. Your God
reigns. He reigns now and for evermore. Amen and amen!
