“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.” (I Timothy 1:17)
“To HIM be dominion forever and ever!” (I Peter 5:11)
Circumstances may cause us to tremble, but in Christ we can stand, unshakable.
God is calling His children to humbly submit to Him and to stand faithful in whatever circumstances we find ourselves and whatever is happening in the world around us.
He is the One who equips us to do so. We can trust that He walks with us through fire and draws and refines His own.
We can humbly ask Him for wisdom and discernment and the ability to trust Him and live out His will in spite of whatever we “see.”
If you are not a child of God, trusting in the work of Christ to redeem and transform you, surrendered to the King of Kings, “call to Him (humbly and in faith and repentance) and He will answer you and tell you wonderful things that you did not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3) Today is the day you can know Him, not just know about Him.
Even if the world “shakes,” God will not be shaken, He reigns and is steadfast.
Mercy. It is what we receive when we come to Christ. But it is also what we are to pray for in the midst of judgement and discipline.
Regardless of any “outcomes” – politically, medically, relationally – God is at work, and He is calling us to a faithful rest and walk in Him.
We can weep yet still trust.
We can wrestle faithfully yet still rest.
“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” Colossians 1:9-12
We can have eyes to see and ears to hear?
On this day and the days ahead, let us walk in a manner worthy of the Lord and so give Him the glory, show the way to the living hope to those without, and increase our joy and steadfastness.
