Psalm 145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power, 12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Good morning church,
It's almost a new year. Another opportunity to get our priorities straight - to put our house in order, and put Jesus as King. What would it look like if He was to rule our lives - every area I mean! What if He was in control of our finances, our time, our thoughts, our emotions, our decisions, our families? It still astonishes me to find people who say Jesus is Lord, and yet so few give Him control of their lives. A KING is born!!! He is destined to have dominion of the whole Earth, and every person in it. Every knee will bow to Him one day. If we are a followers of Jesus, and have been born again, then a King has been born in us! His kingdom is to take over our lives. He is to have dominion. How will we know? The psalmist answers that question: "we will speak of the glory of His Kingdom, and talk of His power; we will make known His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom". How much do we speak about the King and His kingdom? Do you know the Bible says that our mouths reflect what is in our heart. In other words, what we talk about, reveals what is important to us (Luke 6:45).
It is time we start talking about our King and His Kingdom! The world is unfolding just the way God planned. Nations are crumbling around us, and prophecy is being fulfilled. Many are starting to see the prophetic pictures of Daniel realized in our day. That means, the King is coming!!! And His Kingdom will be forever established. If we are not willing to submit to the King now, why would we want to later? Jesus the King is coming for His loyal citizens who have obeyed Him. Let's make this year about obeying our King and getting ready for His return and rule.
Read Daniel 7, and Psalm 145.
(This years devotionals will be focusing on Jesus as revealed in the Gospel of Luke.)
