All Things Are Under His Control

By the power and authority of God Almighty, all things are firmly under His control. Everything in the heavens and on earth is under His ultimate rule. Though mankind may raise a tiny fist against Him now, one day, every knee shall bow, and every tongue will confess that He reigns forever. To the one who sits on the throne, King Jesus.

He will bring all things and every man, great and small, into subjection to Himself. Even those who curse His name will have to give Him praise and glory. Believe it or not, this will happen.

Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

Yet, the Lord is faithful to His servants who are faithful to Him. To His servants, who love and follow His commands and precepts. To those who refuse to listen to man’s ways but choose to seek God’s will in everything they do, to listen to God rather than men.

God will take care of you in every situation if you trust Him. He gives you life and joy even through hard times and struggles. He never leaves His children alone and cares, keeps, protects, and provides for your every need, even as the world around you crumbles.

People of this world may lash out against you with their words of condemnation and acts of hatred. They may scorn and laugh at your good and righteous ways. But the eyes of the Lord are watching, and His ears are attentive to the prayer of the righteous. Therefore, do not worry about them, for His anger grows against the actions of the wicked. So then, when the time is right, He will bring His rebuke and repay them for all they have done.

In my distress, I called upon the LORD; to my God, I cried for help. From His temple, He heard my voice, and my cry to Him reached His ears. Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils and devouring fire from His mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from Him. He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under His feet.

He rode on a cherub and flew; He came swiftly on the wings of the wind. He made darkness His covering, His canopy around Him, thick clouds dark with water. Out of the brightness before Him, hailstones and coals of fire broke through His clouds.

The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Most High uttered His voice, hailstones, and coals of fire. And He sent out His arrows and scattered them; He flashed forth lightnings and routed them. Then the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils. Psalm 18:6-15

Though they try to tear you down and destroy your good name and life, be content where the Lord has you now. There are many lessons to be learned and much more work to be done for the glory of God. He has many great things in store for you, and His plan is yet to be fulfilled. No matter what raging storms batter your sides, He will be there to keep you standing firm.

His heavens stand firm, and your place in the heavens remains unmovable. He is seated, His work is done, and no one will change the outcome. From the beginning to the end, God has declared that nothing they can say or do can truly harm you. Your armor is strong, and God has polished it bright. For you are a champion, and He will conquer through you. Never forget, the Lord has already won the war.

Keep your path straight, and He will light your way. He doesn’t always light your way with a floodlight but guides you one step at a time. He desires your forward motion by faith and not by what can be seen with your eyes.

Trust the Lord, and He will fix His plan solid and sure. No one can change what the Lord has ordained for you. What He has established will surely come to pass. Therefore, you can trust the one who reigns over all creation by faith.

Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. By your appointment, they stand this day, for all things are your servants.

If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts, for by them, you have given me life. I am yours; save me, for I have sought your precepts. The wicked lie in wait to destroy me, but I consider your testimonies. I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.  Psalms 119:89-96
