Bible Ballistics: BBs #660 Our Sovereign God Still Reigns!!!
“Thou art worthy,
to receive glory
for thou hast created all things,
and for thy pleasure
and were created.” Revelation 4:11
Our God, the creator and ruler of all is still in charge regardless of what is going on around us. God calls us to not only keep our eyes on Jesus, but to look up knowing that our redeemer LIVES! And HE is coming again!
“And then shall they see the Son of man coming
in a cloud
and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass,
then look up,
and lift up your heads;
for your redemption
draweth nigh.” Luke 21:27-28
Amen and Amen! And we could just stop there but I would like to share a bit of hope and encouragement with you in this disconcerting time. We can be confident and secure in our Lord Jesus Christ!
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power,
and of love,
and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
That “sound mind” means ‘right thinking’—and since Jesus is ‘truth’ we can think on the things of God and walk in victory—not ease—but victory!
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.” Philippians 4:8
Guard your heart and mind with The Word of God—it will prepare us for the battle that we are in. And we can stand fast in the certainty of our God’s sovereign rule in truth and right! His goodness is sure, and HE is worthy of our praise, for God sent His Son to give us life—and it cost HIM HIS! HE IS WORTHY (as well as trust-worthy!)!!!
“And they sung a new song, saying,
Thou art worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof:
for thou wast slain,
and hast redeemed us
by thy blood
out of every kindred,
10 And hast made us unto our God
and we shall reign on the earth.
11 And I beheld,
and I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne
and the beasts
and the elders:
and the number of them was ten thousand
times ten thousand,
and thousands of thousands;
12 Saying with a loud voice,
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power,
and blessing.” Revelation 5:9-12. Amen!
You can rest in His care, for HE is ever the same, and HE cares for YOU!
“My help cometh from the LORD,
which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee
will not slumber.” Psalm 121:2-3
I hope you find this post helpful and encouraging as you face uncertain days; but remember our God is NEVER unsure or uncertain—HE REIGNS!
“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude,
and as the voice of many waters,
and as the voice of mighty thunderings,
for the Lord God omnipotent
reigneth.” Revelation 19:6. Amen!!!
