My God Reigns

“Your throne, God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.”

(Psalm 45:7 {verse 6 in English})

Indeed, God rules forever and ever and his throne is eternal. As Isaiah writes:

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet who brings good news, making peace heard — good news, making salvation heard; saying to Zion, “Your God reigns.”

(Isaiah 52:7)

What is interesting, and what we may not expect, is that the most frequent use of the idea of an everlasting throne speaks of the Messianic throne of David. God promises that his throne will last forever (2 Samuel 7:16). This promise continues through Solomon (1 Kings 2:45) and is fulfilled in Christ Jesus (Isaiah 9:7).

And what marks the eternal throne of the Messiah is righteousness — the righteousness of Christ, which is the righteousness of God. As I am reflecting on this, I am inundated with the words of politicians as we prepare for this election. Yet, I must ask, are there any who will govern with righteousness? Are there any who seek justice as their primary motive for running for office? Are we going to the polls and voting with that question burning on our hearts? Sadly, I fear, that righteousness in American politics is something that has been trampled by personal agendas in American politics.

Thus, in the midst of the mud-slinging, may we look to the true and righteous King of Heaven for hope and stability during days of trouble. May we call upon him as a people, repenting of our sins and crying out to Him for deliverance. And may it truly be good news to us that the world would know that our God reigns.

    And I thank God that this is true! I’m praying that people seek God and the salvation that He has provided through His Son; and that America (and the world) turns back to God. In Jesus’ name . . .
