Today’s Reading: 2 Kings 19:15
And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord. Lord, the God of Isreal, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.
Today, I find comfort in this verse. There can be our natural human lean towards fear and anxiety about future health for ourselves, family, and friends. It’s reassuring I can find peace in our God in His Kingdom at this time. On this side of the earth and in eternal Heaven, God alone will rule. In the last five weeks, we have talked about our Lord the King of Kings at church. Pastor Mike has provided wisdom to the Living truth that it all points back to One King and One Kingdom. (If you have time I would go back and watch or listen – King of Kings )
For me, it has lately been really easy to live my life according to the calendar of daily events that either involve myself, wife, or children. Before just over a week ago I was still just doing what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it. In reflection, it was like my own day to day kingdom that of course, I felt I had control of. How selfish of me. The truth is God has reigned over all kingdoms, He has always been able to show this kingdom is His. The kingdom of Earth and Heaven. As I stated in the beginning, I found comfort in this verse because it helped me to remember who’s Kingdom this all is, and the eternal Kingdom to come. I can’t let my schedules run me around, I need to submit to His will daily.
David said in 1 Chronicles 29:11 says
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is yours; yours is the kingdom.
I love you and thank you for all your ways. I humbly repent of my earthly desires to always want to do what I want to do and not submit to Your will. Help me to listen, help me to lean into your Living Word and remember who’s God over this earthly Kingdom and the one to come. Lord, we pray for wisdom and comfort during this time using all our moments to point back to you. Help us to grow more Christ-like and deepen our trust in Your plan.
