A Hostile World is But a Storm in a Snow Globe to the Almighty God
07/04/2007 - Mike PorterThe "religion of peace" has been busy proving that they desire only peace over in the UK of late. In such times, it is helpful to remember the words of God himself to Job:
Job 38:4 "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, 5 Who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it? 6 "On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 "Or who enclosed the sea with doors When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb; 9 When I made a cloud its garment And thick darkness its swaddling band, 10 And I placed boundaries on it And set a bolt and doors,11 And I said, 'Thus far you shall come, but no farther; And here shall your proud waves stop'? 12 "Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, And caused the dawn to know its place, 13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it?
With times uncertain within the realm of the finite, it is good to be reminded that our God has the not only the responsibility, but the necessary power to command the morning and cause the dawn to know its place. God alone can command the waves, "Thus far but no farther!" That God remains supreme above His creation is never in our doubt, and those who seek to usurp His authority receive a hearty laugh from the heavens, we who are but grasshoppers.
We serve an enthroned God whose majesty fills the heavens. His supremacy exceeds our greatest imaginations and His rule extends far beyond anything we can comprehend. Even as the train of His robe fills the temple that Isaiah saw (Isa. 6) where his train is symbolic of His greatness as King, so, too we understand that His Kingship is unparalleled in all His creation.
I thank God that He has given me the grace to understand that even the wills of men are subject and subdued by a conquering King.
In the meantime, may God grant true peace to true seekers of peace by subduing their hearts and bringing them into subjection of the Prince of Peace that the peace which passes all understanding will pervade their hearts.
