God’s Hope for Your Heart from Psalm 47

GOD IS THE GREATEST AUTHORITY

God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne.  (Psalm 47:8)

Nations rise and grow strong, then weaken and eventually fall.  Societies grow and expand, then contract and inevitably collapse.  As surely as winter follows autumn and spring follows winter, all civilizations have their seasons, too.

But God remains in charge.

The highest authority over a people is not government, but God.

The last word in the destiny of a nation is not given by their president or prime minister, their king or their emperor, but by the greater sovereign who allowed them to come to power in the first place.

This means that wherever and whenever you find yourself in the flow of history, you don’t have to be afraid of what’s to come.  Good days or bad, easy times or hard, you don’t have to be a victim of the world around you if you’re part of God’s family.  You can be a victor as you hold fast to truth and walk in faith, hope, and love.

Have confidence in Christ today, whatever the headlines say.  Look to His Word and Spirit for your answers and strength, and as you do, you’ll find hope in this truth: God is the greatest authority,

-Pastor Phillip
