1 John 4:1-6 – “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore, they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” NKJV
It is a beautiful morning, wonderful coffee, pleasant time watching the morning break, refreshing reading from the Word, and the stillness of the quietness in which the “still small voice could speak” asking me the above question – – “WHO IS RUNNING THE SHOW?”
When God asks a question, it’s not like He doesn’t already know the answer. He is wanting us to come to the same conclusion in our finite understanding as He is in his Omniscience. It’s a question that He knows we often already know the answer but wants to reinforce it in our spirits and lives. He chastened me for the times when I let a little twinge of fear for what is happening come into my heart. He reminded me that He (GOD) has not abdicated the Throne of Heaven and is still in charge. He is still the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS! He is still ALPHA and OMEGA!
He brought comfort to my heart that no matter what happens He is still God! He warned that He was not telling me not to work. He was not saying that I was not to do that which I know needs to be done. He was not telling me that I was not to be involved in the daily affairs of man but not to neglect the most important the Spiritual side of man. “Seek FIRST the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness…” Look to Him first and foremost! Educate, evaluate, elaborate, and even where needed debate what is right, biblical, holy, and good and point people first to Him and then to what they should be doing in the natural realm.
I will be vocal regarding the wrong in the political and human side of life, but I will also be vocal in pointing to the one and only one who can give ETERNAL LIFE! I have arisen with a new confidence that even if evil seemingly gained total control, we will be okay. If they take our heads from our bodies, we will be okay. If we must daily contend with violent evil, we will be okay. If we face an early death, we will be okay. If we, like Moses, live to be 120 we will be okay. GOD IS STILL IN CHARGE!
Hallelujah, God is in Charge! God is in Charge! I have no fear because my Savior is near! God is still in Charge! I face today with that on my heart! I will face the night with that on my heart! GOD IS STILL IN CHARGE!!! I AM AT TOTAL PEACE!!!
Blessings to everyone – Remember always that GOD IS IN CHARGE!
