Daily devotions 12Th

"In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne." Isa.6:1 NIV

God is still on the throne!

The Bible says that in the end times certain things will happen, like: (1) Wars, famines, and earthquakes (see Mt 24:6-7) For much of the world these things are now a daily reality. (2) Jesus said: "Many will come in MY name...and will deceive (Mt. 24:5 NKJV). In recent years we've seen the rise of false prophets claiming to speak for God. (3) Jesus also said: "You will be hated...for My names sake" (Mt 24:9NKJV). Christians are under attack worldwide in places like China, Sudan, Africa, Saudi Arabia and North Korea. (4) Jesus said: "This gospel...will be preached in all the world...the end will come" (Mt 24:14 NKJV) Technology is making this increasingly possible through print, TV, radio and the internet. (5) God said He would shake things up until only those things which cannot be shaken would remain (see Heb. 12:27). All around us corporate executives are caving in to greed while our financial security goes up in smoke. But take heart Child of God-when governments flounder and leaders fail, God STILL rules, His Word STILL stands, His plans are STILL being fulfilled. Isaiah wrote: "In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted." That's all Isaiah needed to know, and its all YOU need to know too! God's not pacing the streets of heaven worrying about what's happening. He's still on the throne, so fix your eyes on Him and keep them THERE! Charles Spurgeon said, "God has promised to keep His people, and He will keep His promise."
