God Has it Covered

1/20/2021

Today is the beginning of a new administration that promises to bring radical change to America. For some time, this has caused turmoil in people’s minds; anger, fear, uncertainty and even depression.

We must remind ourselves that God works through government leaders to bring about His purpose which is in line with His love for humanity and His final return. We also must remember that our hope and trust is not in any president, or political party, but in Jesus Christ who is Lord of all that is. Nothing escapes His eye; nothing takes place without His permission and the limitations he puts in place. So, regardless of how we view this administration God’s will is being done. We may not like it, we may not understand it, but we must trust that God has it covered.

I believe God’s greatest concern for His people is not our earthly comfort and possessions, but our love for Him. He doesn’t want us to be so caught up with what this world offers that we place our allegiance to Him second or third. Remember what Jesus held against the church in Ephesus; they had forsaken their first love. Rev2:4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Also, Matthew 6:33 Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. What must be first, but actively pursuing God and obeying His commands. With that comes the promise of providing everything we need for daily living.

The Lord wants His people to return to Him with greater love seeking to serve Him faithfully with our whole heart. God still loves us and is with us and that can never change even though the powers that be will change, God is superior to man’s authority.
