Our country is in the midst of changing its leadership. It seems the seat of our government is presently empty. It also seems there is much national corruption, world chaos, and municipal rottenness with too many dilettantes playing the fool; there are problems everywhere. Our change in government reminded me of something Isaiah wrote, “In the year that king Uzziah died, (6:1). Uzziah was the only king Isaiah had known, and suddenly the throne was empty, and chaos was everywhere. But then Isaiah wrote, “I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up.”
As we stand on the threshold of 2017, do we have a vision of our government being an empty throne, do we have a vision of worldwide chaos, or are we able to look past the empty throne and the chaos and have a vision of God enthroned? Such a vision of God is not one of an empty throne, or one of a throne that is tottering, but one where God is holy, in charge, and in control.
If we begin this year by first seeing God high-up and above all earthly thrones. If we can see that His throne is never empty, never trembles, and never changes. Then we can see, and we can know that God is very much in charge, in control, and that He has provided us with the answers to all of humanity’s ills. That answer is the evangel of Jesus Christ.
He is in control,
