God is Still on the Throne

To Such as This Etsy

Some days it seems as if there is no hope for the world, for America. Sometimes current events weigh so heavily on our hearts that we feel as if we can’t breathe.

But God is still on the throne.

When people’s feelings are worth more than the sanctity of life, it can feel like the end. When we are seen only by the color of our skin, our sexual orientation, or our occupation instead of being seen as humans made in the image of God, it may seem like there is no hope.

But God is still on the throne.

When the greatest nation on earth is in a state of turmoil and despair, we can feel consumed by fear. When those who have sworn to protect us turn to harm us, we can feel as if there is nowhere to turn.

But God is still on the throne.

We can’t look for hope in any politician, no matter how persuasive he or she may be. We can’t look for hope in any movement, no matter how effective it may be. We can’t look for hope in our nation no matter how mighty we may be.

The only place where we can look for hope and be fulfilled is in God. He promised to never leave us nor forsake us. He has never left us and he never will. The King is sovereign and he reigns, he is on the move. The battle is already won.

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. ~2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Don’t lose hope, God is still on the throne
