The Lord has clothed and encircled Himself with strength;
the world is firmly established, it cannot be moved.”
This verse is so relevant to our nature of fear and panic. Why?
Because so many, especially Christians are wondering who replaced Him.
Did He leave, move on or just quit?
God hasn’t “flown the coop.”
He has never said, “Bye, bye.”
In fact He is still very much reigning from the only throne that matters.
According to 2 Chronicles 16:9 God is here on earth with us. I have read or heard that 3 AM is His hour to show up. Now that may or may not be true but I am comforted thinking it.
Why wouldn’t He be here?
He created this planet.
He birthed all of us.
He is the reason the earth still exists.
It’s not His problem that we think He isn’t around. It’s ours. And just like His words say, “you have done a foolish thing” which may be that we left Him. We kicked Him out of schools. We threw Him out of the White House. We abandoned Him for the foolish things of this world.
No wonder evil has flourished.
No wonder it feels like one pandemic of fear and trepidation after another.
Believe me, He is still on His Throne.
In order for any of us to understand that, we must get and stay close to Him.
Why? Because evil wants us to think He was conquered, stopped or jolted by some immense battle He couldn’t win.
Evil was defeated once and for all on the Cross of Christ.
Reading His word, praying and spending time with God resets our minds. In the course of this process we regain faith, hope and courage.
The more we focus on Him, the more we realize He is not only still around, He is in Charge!
