The news headlines continue to remind us of the desperation of mankind.
Earthquakes. Extreme weather. Unleashed wickedness. Unemployment. Rising prices. Government failures. Political battles. Poverty. Starvation. Homelessness. The list could go on to fill pages. However…
God is in control. 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.
“For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.” (Psalm 22:28)
Regardless what we face—natural disaster, 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 ahead growing worse and worse? There is no one and there is 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.
