Our God Reigns

By , June 23, 2013

“Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude,
like the roar of rushing waters
and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
‘Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns…'”
Revelation 19:6 (NIV)

“There is nothing – no circumstance, no trouble, no testing –
that can ever touch me until, first of all,
it has gone past God and past Christ right through to me.

If it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose,
which I may not understand at the moment.

But as I refuse to become panicky,
as I lift up my eyes to Him and accept it as coming from the throne of God
for some great purpose of blessing to my own heart,
no sorrow will ever disturb me,
no trial will ever disarm me,
no circumstance will cause my to fret –
for I shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is! –
That is the rest of victory!”
