Editor's Note: Today begins a day that is frightening to some people, with the new leadership and values ahead in Congress. So I trust that this devotional will be apropos, and will be reassuring to those who are ill at ease about the changes ahead. As Adam reminds us below, God is always in control. Jan
As the New Year begins, we in the United States, have many primaries to look forward to. They will lead up to a presidential election in eleven months. I do not know all the facts about each candidate, so I still have some homework to do. My mind began to think of these elections and the end of another year when a preacher recently used the sixth chapter of Isaiah as his text.
Isaiah 6:1 - In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
As 2007 dies, God still reigns. Isn't that good news? When King Uzziah died, God still reigned. Thousands of years later, when George W. Bush steps down as President and someone else takes over, God will still reign. God is still sovereign. He has always been the Lord of lords and King of kings and always will be. That is great news.
As we enter 2008, God reigns. Will you acknowledge his reign and live for him or will you live for yourself until you too die? Either way God will still reign.
