Don’t know if you’ve ever asked this question during trying times, but I have – “God, where are you?” Remember that moment in your desperation. You were pinned against the wall… time was running out… you had invested your last ounce of energy and had nothing left. And you thought God was on the other side of the world, right? You thought He’d forgotten all about you, or didn’t have time for you. You thought He stopped caring and left you to manage your own affairs. You thought your situation was so unique, but evidently it got past God and He was totally unaware of your hardship.
Friend, can I just tell you… God is still sitting on His throne. He is totally cognizant of everything, and I mean everything that is happening in your life. He’s not wringing His hands wondering what He’s going to do about your issue. He knows exactly what He’s doing and why it’s happening.
You might think you’re the last one in line, but I can guarantee you there is someone who is coming up behind you. You might think you’re at rock bottom, but just reach down because you’re lying on top on someone who has fallen further than you. You might think you’re the only one who’s broke, with no money for food, but just open your eyes and see those folks living under the overpasses, digging in the dumpsters and begging at the stop lights.
God hasn’t left His throne and He never will. The Bible tells us…
“God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne.” Psalm 47:8
That should get a whoop and a holler from someone! Somebody has forgotten that our God still rules and reigns and nothing about our life has gone unnoticed by Him. Yes, life could be worse. But can I tell you – life could be better! Like me, you woke up this morning with a fresh anointing from God. He put breath in your body… He allowed your eyes to open and see color… He allowed your ears to hear the sound of a new day… He allowed your arms to throw the covers back… He allowed your legs to dangle over the side of the bed and the ability to stand upright… He allowed your mind to kick in to know where you were… He allowed you strength to get up and start your day… And He allowed you to have things to do and the ability to do them.
Here’s my word of encouragement for you today: Get up! Get going! Get with it! Get it on! God is still ruling from His throne and your life is on His radar. It always has been and it always will be. He knows exactly what He’s doing and why things are the way they are in your life. So give Him some praise today!
Thank You for my life. Thank You for ruling from Your holy throne! Jesus in Your name I pray, Amen.
