“The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.” Psalm 97:1
The Lord reigns!
We must never doubt that He sits on the throne of heaven and rules the universe.
People may think they are in charge. They are not.
Governments may make the assumption that they rule. They do not.
The devil may believe he is in control. He is not.
There is an ultimate Ruler and He sits on the throne of heaven and no matter how powerful, how intelligent, or wealthy world leaders might be, they are subject to the true authority, Jesus.
Each one of us is a mere breath away from eternity. We breathe because God allows us to take our next breath.
This verse tells us that the earth should be glad, distant shores should rejoice, and God is reigning.
He is all knowing, all powerful, ever present, and He is also all loving. He knows us better than we know ourselves.
Whether we acknowledge Him or not, He still reigns and someday all people will bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
You reign over all the earth and You reign over my life. Thank You for being my King.
