|Our Certain World|

Many walk in a world of uncertainty because they are afflicted with Forrest Gump’s attitude: “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” While we live in an uncertain world, but for the Christian it is also certain, for God is on His throne: “Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!” (Revelation 19:6).
Every morning when Christians get up they can know that God is on His throne. Sometimes we behave as though God has vacated His throne. It appears to us as though evil is controlling God’s world.
Things were not good for the apostle John when he wrote the Book of Revelation. In fact, he was a prisoner of Rome. He had been exiled to the Island of Patmos because he refused to say, “Caesar is on the throne;” instead he said, “God is on the throne.”
Some D.C. politician isn’t on the throne. God is on the throne, and we can count on Him, for He is a high-performance God. Though we live in a world of many uncertain things, there are certain things we can depend on, and the greatest certainty of all is the fact that God is on His throne, and the final decision as to what will happen to this world is in His hands.
In the month of November, Americans will decide on righteousness or unrighteousness. We need to turn to God for help, as we shoulder our responsibility to help get this nation back on track, for right now it is a run-a-way train, traveling on a broken track.
We cannot afford four more years of the same. God is on His throne and we must pray to Him for help.
God Bless America!
