“YOUR GOD REIGNS” – July 22

July 22, 2013

“How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”  Isaiah 52:7

This world has an abundance of hurting and disillusioned people.

What words can be spoken to the defeated?
What direction can be given to the oppressed?
What encouragement can lift up the suffering?

There are words for those who are battling, the unhappy, the discouraged, the doubting – “Your God Reigns!”

Although this world may not be unfolding as we had hoped – Our God Reigns!

God is reigning over chronic pain.
God is reigning over the loss of a loved one.
God is reigning over addiction.
God is reigning over finances.
God is reigning over helplessness.
God is reigning over failure.
God is reigning over waiting.
God is reigning over unbelief.
God is reigning over uncertainty.

Although this world may appear chaotic, God reigns.

We have not been abandoned to cosmic forces.
We are not subjected to the merciless winds of fate.
We are not forced to drink the cup of meaninglessness.

The good news for those who have been adopted as children of God resides in the everlasting hope flowing from the reign of our God.  He reigns over all.  There is none like Him.  There is none equal to Him.  Nothing is too small for Him.  Nothing is too large.  Nothing is beyond His dominion.

He has not forgotten the falling of a sparrow – because He reigns!

We are of more value than many sparrows.  Nothing can force Him to abandon us –because He reigns.

We can have confidence that nothing is outside His control; nothing is a surprise; nothing is beyond His will.

“Your God reigns,” are sweet words to the redeemed.  Hopelessness has no home while God reigns.  The knowledge of God on His throne banishes all anxiety and worry.

There is no valley too deep or too long for the one who is loved by God.
Our God reigns over all – valleys and mountains.

May we live in the joy and happiness that our God reigns!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for reigning over all!  Thank you for keeping an eye on me.  Thank you not abandoning me.  Thank you for valuing me more than a sparrow.  Forgive me for worrying while you are firmly on your throne.  Forgive me of the unbelief that I show when I am anxious of tomorrow.  Help me to walk in faith.  Remind me that you are on your throne.  Grant me the peace that only your reigning can give.  I pray this in the precious name of your Son, Jesus Christ.   Amen.
