Kings & Kingdoms

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. Psalm 145:13 NRSV

MP900443670[1]Just take a quick glance at world events and notice how quickly things are changing. Every day we hear about protests, intensifying struggles between governments and regional instability. I think it’s safe to say that in today’s world kings come and go, and kingdoms rise and fall.

Of course today is no different from any other time in history. The past is a repeating story of emerging empires, revolutionary movements and the rise of new civilizations. The problem is that every new wave that comes, eventually goes. Every uprising is followed by some kind of downfall.

That’s why I put my faith in, and pledge my allegiance to, God’s kingdom. God rules over all God has created. Christ is King of heaven and earth. All of history is moving to the culmination of God’s plan.

These are the facts. Nothing can change God’s purposes. No king or kingdom can challenge Christ’s authority. No one can overthrow God’s rule.

MP900438577[1]While we watch the rise and fall of kings and kingdoms, we would be wise to entrust our days, and affix our destinies to the King of kings and Lord of lords. He rules over all. His kingdom has no end!

All who truly trust the King of kings can find great hope and peace, even in the midst of constantly changing times!
