The political sector of America is more than disconcerting. Even tonight as I type, analysts are predicting the president to once again use executive order to override our congressional representatives. I know many who are angry and fearful, resentful and bitter. It seems as if nothing is concrete or absolute today. Ah, but there are words you can cling to. As I read them this morning, I said, “Yes, Lord I can be thankful in spite of the anxiety filled days in this country.
Psalm 97 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
Let the many islands be glad.
2 Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
3 Fire goes before Him
And burns up His adversaries round about.
4 His lightnings lit up the world;
The earth saw and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare His righteousness,
And all the peoples have seen His glory.
Who reigns? The Lord reigns. I am to rejoice. He is not bound or kept from executing His plan. The whole world is under His control. I am thankful in times of unrest and uncertainty, He has a plan.
I don’t know what problems you are facing or what problems keep you awake at night or anxious throughout the day. I do know God has not lost control. How do I know? I see His word fulfilled daily. It’s amazing to watch the events and situations He foretells come to pass. Take notice of things and remember. His plan is not falling apart; pieces are falling into place. We can be thankful; He reigns.
Burning within me,
