“For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.” (Psalm 22:28)
God is in control in our nation, our cities, our jobs, our school systems. Although the economy is not good, our family and friends are losing their jobs, the prices are rising, we serve a God who is “governor among the nations.” No matter how things look in the natural, God is in control. He and He alone.
There is no power in heaven or on earth that can match the power of God. No principality or power can usurp His might and His sovereignty over all. There is no reason to fear … our God is THE “governor among the nations.” He and He alone.
Wickedness may abound, yet God is in control. Unemployment may rise, yet God is in control. Prices of food and necessities may increase exponentially, yet God is in control. Family and friends may rise up and curse God, yet God is in control. Governments and committees and councils may fail, yet our God, the “governor among the nations” is in control. He and He alone.
Regardless what we face—disease, financial crises, family problems, loss of income, abandonment, rejection, pain, emotional turmoil, persecution, or whatever else may be going on in your life, our God is the “governor among the nations” and He is in control. He and He alone.
Do you live in fear? Are you afraid of the future? Do you see evil in the days growing worse and worse? There is no one or nothing out of God’s governing power. Rest in the fact that the end of history is already written and the Kingdom of God prevails because the King Himself has won the victory.
Let the peace of God reign in your heart—the peace that passes all human understanding. There is nothing God cannot do; He is the “governor among the nations” and there is nothing too difficult for Him. God is in control…He and He alone!
O Sovereign Lord, help me to put my trust in Your governorship over all that concerns me. Remind me moment by moment that there is nothing too difficult for You; that You are Lord, the “governor among the nations.” You and You alone! Help me to find peace in knowing You are in control. Because of Jesus and in His name I pray, amen and amen.
“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” (Daniel 7:13-14 KJV)
