For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
What’s going to happen after the election? The United States is a little over 1 week before it’s National and Presidential elections. For many, there is an uneasiness that they are experiencing. It would be similar to the first shaking before an earthquake moves to its peak. All the ground seems to be unsettled with nowhere to stand for safety.
I am not sure how our country will respond, but I know what God’s word says. Jesus has the world’s government upon His shoulders. He is establishing His kingdom reign. There is a strength and security when Jesus builds His kingdom.
It is ever increasing no matter who is king or president; no matter which political party is “in control”; no matter if the country is a democracy, communist, socialist, dictatorship or a monarch; and no matter the poverty or wealth status of the people…Jesus’ government is increasing.
His government is always moving toward justice and righteousness. Where there is injustice and innocent bloodshed, Jesus is involved in the redemption process. God is actively at work in Christ to reconcile the world back to Himself. This never stops. God is always at work to establish and uphold it.
How does He advance His government? God allows His children to become His ambassadors. We take God’s kingdom with us wherever we go. We speak His will to be established on earth as it is in heaven. With love at our core relationship with God and mankind, we speak freedom for those who are lost and captive to sin.
Be filled with hope today. Jesus is working all of things to His good pleaure. Even when the enemy is throwing up chaos and insecurities, God points to Jesus as the Prince of Peace. At His birth the angels declared from heaven…peace on earth and goodwill to men. Receive Peace today, Jesus offers it freely.
Don’t be unsettled when men speak vileness to one another and perform unrighteous acts. Jesus is still on His throne giving direction to those who are listening. His plans are good and strong. His plans are wise. His ways are kind and loving. His path is sure. He will give strength to the weary to help them endure. He is always on guard and will never, never leave His children. Not even for one moment.
Hallelujah, Jesus has ALL authority and THE NAME above every other name. Somebody should say AMEN!
Have a blessed Fear Not Friday.
