The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Psalm 99:1
Throughout the earth, many different people are seen to be the rulers. Often this is seen primarily as the rulers of various nations. Every nation has a ruler of some sort. Under the main leader of the nation, there are others who also seem to reign in the government in various ways.
Inside of each of these nations are other people who seem to rule in some area. Rulers of states, cities, neighborhoods, businesses and more.
Some of these rulers seem to be completely in charge and people fear them. Some rule with great care and love, while others rule with a heavy hand of dictatorship. Many fear those in leadership for various reasons. Fear because of the wrong they are doing, or the power that the person has.
Often forgotten is the one who reigns over the top of all of these rulers. Regardless of the power and level of a ruler on this earth, God is above.
Many people feel as though God is not really in control, because of the condition of this world. It does appear as though God does not really reign, because of all the sin occurring. The world seems to be winning the battle.
Yet, God is really in control. He places people into position and takes them out of position. God uses everything to the benefit of every believer. The world should be shaking and trembling at the thought that God does reign as supreme ruler over the world, because judgement is coming.
As a believer, you do not need to shake and tremble. You have been forgiven of your sins and are in right standing with God. Now all you need to do is trust that God is really in control. Allow God to reign in your life.
Letting God reign in your life, means you will allow God to guide your every step and action. Your thoughts and words will be what God wants them to be.
What does the thought of God reigning do to you?
Do you shake and tremble?
Or do you give Him praise?
I pray today that you will know Jesus as the ruler of your life today; that you will trust God as the sovereign power in your life; that you will praise God for reigning in this world; and that you will be His witness of His power to this world.
