Bible Ballistics: BBs #456 Our God Still Reigns!!!
Just a midweek reminder that YOU are not alone! No matter the stress or strain, the difficulty or joy—God is still on His throne, and He hasn’t forgotten where you and I are! I may not know what’s going on with you, but I know as scripture reminds us, it has happened before and it will happen again, for there truly is ‘nothing new under the sun’! Yet our sovereign Lord has not left us alone—HE is with us—Now!
“The thing that hath been,
it is that which shall be;
and that which is done
is that which shall be done:
and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
Even more important than the recurring and cyclic nature of life, is the sure and certain truth that God is still in charge! And we can find great comfort and assurance in the immutability (unchangeableness) of The God Almighty whom we serve!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday,
and to day,
and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8
“My Father, which gave them me,
is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them
out of my Father’s hand.
30 I and my Father
are one.” John 10:30-31
All because Jesus IS God, the same attributes that are true of God The Father, are true of Jesus The Son!
What an awesome assurance from our Lord Jesus that we can live victorious lives with the same confidence in Him and His faithfulness. God wants you to know that no matter what you are facing, no matter the trial or difficulty, or the joy or delight, or what worry or concern is looming over your head and your heart—“Our God Reigns”!!! May you take comfort from HIS powerful truth!
“How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him that bringeth
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings
that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion,
Thy God reigneth!” Isaiah 52:7
What a glorious triumph awaits us, when our precious Lord Jesus returns—and I believe it is imminent–and that’s a sure and certain confidence you can “stand fast” in today!
“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, saying,
for the Lord God
omnipotent reigneth.” Revelation 19:6
I can hear the beauty of Handel’s wondrous ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ ringing in my ears and in my heart. Have a blessed day my friend, and remember—look up, walk forward and press on with Jesus. We win! The “Lord God omnipotent reigneth”—“Yesterday and today and forever”! Amen!
