God reigns and is moving today in every corner of the globe! Yet the evil in our world and its prominence in news reports can sometimes make us lose sight of this. When we forget His sovereignty, we can easily slip into despair and hopelessness.
As we look back over 2016 we recognize and rejoice that He reigns “far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title…” and that “all things are under His feet” (Eph. 1:21,22).
“The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all” (Ps. 103:19). Nothing has or ever will usurp His authority and power. He reigns, and He rules over China and Europe, North Korea and Syria, Boko Haram and the Islamic State. He rules over Polio, cancer, hunger, and refugees. He rules over corporations, celebrities, and sports. He even rules over galaxies, stars, and planets “and calls them each by name” (Ps. 147:5).
Join us in remembering the events of 2016 through the lens of His love for the world and His sovereignty and reign over it. “You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand…” (2 Chron. 20:6).
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. - John 14:14
