The Lord Reigns

Our culture trains us to think we are independent people who can do whatever we want. When we buy into this thinking, we consider ourselves the masters of our own destiny. But this mentality is bound to rebel against the restraints of God’s sovereignty. Whenever God makes demands of us that run counter to our thoughts or desires, we will vainly plot ways to free ourselves from what seems like chains preventing us from getting what we want. Palm Sunday is a reminder to us that God reigns and that He plans to mediate that reign through His Son Jesus Christ. But it is no celebration for us unless we are willing to wisely repent of our self-centered rebellion, fearfully worship the almighty sovereign God, and humbly submit to Him and the rule of His Son. Without these essential attitudes God’s sovereign rule will always feel like chains instead of the blessing that He intends it to be, for blessed are all who take refuge in Him! May we be a people whose refuge is Jesus. Read More

Enduring God's Tests

When we face various trials and tests in our lives, we may be tempted to think that God has abandoned us. Because things aren't going according to our expectations, we assume that God’s plan for our lives must have failed or perhaps that He has forgotten about us. But as long as God continues to preserve our lives, we can rest assured that He is accomplishing His plan through us. Far from abandoning us or His plan, the trials and tests God allows are for the purpose of accomplishing His plan. While we struggle to see His plan in the midst of difficulties, His Word assures us that His plan cannot be thwarted. Scriptures like Romans 8 and 2 Corinthians 4 offer us this assurance. And so we endure, trusting God to continue preserving our lives as long as He needs to fulfill His plan. May God grant us the grace to hear His Word when all we can see is trials. Read More
