These are challenging times. Uncertainty has created distrust, discouragement and disillusionment.
Those who lead in government, business and often ministry can be characterized by arrogance, abandonment of Godly principles and an affinity to anti-Kingdom methodology. The eternal King’s response is recorded by the psalmist, “He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.” (Ps 2:4)
There is an answer. The psalmist identifies the sole solution. “Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.” (Ps 2:10-11)
In God we trust. This is more than just a motto on our currency and coins. It is our mantra of total dependence on Him. Paul reminds us “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” (Romans 13:1)
in God we rest. Even in times of worry and weariness, He is there. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
in God we hope. Uncertainty can erode our perseverance and patience. Again, the psalmist provides the assuring encouragement, “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.” (Psalms 39:7)
He laughs and we rejoice.
He reigns. He rules. He is returning.
