Do you ever watch the news and just think what a chaotic world we live in. How much more must God look on in despair at the mess we have made of his amazing creation? But we as Christians can take heart from the fact that it won’t always be like this. Our earthly governments are never going to succeed where God will and we know that Jesus will return again and bring peace, justice and righteousness to our lives for all eternity.
- ISAIAH 9:6 – For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Chaos, it won’t always be like this, Jesus came once and he’s coming again and this time it’s permanent he’s coming to reign and when he does the snake gets it, the sin, the dark, the sadness, the madness of the world will be gone, his tranquil rule of peace will spread through the new Jerusalem, justice and goodness into eternity, sweet victory of an awesome God and however hard you find it now knowing the truth is how you keep on going, knowing that justice will come, one day at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, God in control, the government on his shoulders and we stakeholders in his eternal Kingdom will not be bullied into silence, we will not lose our voice, we rejoice through times of persecution, we surrender to the Prince of Peace, to the child who was freely given, more surrender, more selfless living, integrity, humility, that is what it means to follow Jesus to glimpse his holiness, perfection in the resurrection of the man who gave spectacular evidence of God’s power, yet they still doubted, minds clouded by the enemy who doesn’t want us to see the glory of his Majesty, the enemy thrives on calamity and tragedy but God has won the victory, God has already won and no matter what you’ve done, nothing can separate you from the Love of Jesus, hand your stress to him, hand over the pain, the sadness, the madness of your world and watch as he frees you from those bonds, he came to set the prisoner free and that means normal people like me, surrender all and do it today, the price for your sins has already been paid, give him the worries, the stress and the fear and allow him to clear the path for you to grow and feed your mind so you will know the reason for your joy, all connected to the birth so long ago of that baby boy.
