OUR LORD REIGNS FOREVER!
But you, O LORD, reign forever; your throne endures to all generations. —Lamentations 5:19
Our Lord reigns forever and we are His servants! What greater joy can there be than that? We get to serve our Lord forever. He alone is perfect. He alone is totally good. He alone has our best interests in mind. He alone loves us like no other. We are fortunate to know Him!
All earthly rulers’ reigns last but a moment. Their thrones are so temporary and their power wanes and vanishes, never to be again. Ungodly rulers think themselves to be powerful when ruling, but they do not know the One who has all power. They do not know the One who actually rules over them and to Whom they will have to give account to one day— whether they believe that or not.
It is our great privilege and responsibility to tell others of our King that they too may come to know Him who reigns forever. His desire is for the lost to come into His kingdom. He has given us the opportunity to herald the gospel. We plant, water and He is the one that causes that seed of His Word to grow in a person’s life. But we need to be planting and watering. This is what our King has called us to and there is no excuse for disobedience in this area (Matthew 28:19-20; John 14:6; Acts 1:8; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:13-15; John 14:21).
Today is July 4th— America’s Independence celebration. We are thankful for the freedoms we have in this country, but we must always remember that true freedom is only found in our Lord Jesus Christ. American will one day perish, but Jesus will remain forever. Let us cling to Him and be faithful in His desires for us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo9ZWX1lEKI&t=519s
Dear Father I am so grateful for the freedom in Jesus and that this is a freedom that will never fail. I am grateful to know King Jesus and to be able to serve Him. May I do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
