“Turn your eyes upon Jesus; Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
We live in a world of chaos. As born-again Christians, we desire that things and people would be godlier. We love God’s way because they are perfect in every way. (Psalm 119). God’s Kingdom will never fail, because God and Jesus Christ sit on the throne over this world. There should be no doubt in our minds that Jesus will eventually rule over everything. God promised us that He rules, and all the earth has always been His. In the book “Trusting God,” Jerry Bridges wrote, if there is a single event in all the universe that can occur outside of God’s sovereign control, then we cannot trust Him.
Jesus Christ Himself said we would have many trials and tribulations in this world, but Jesus Christ has overcome the world. 1 John 2: 15-17, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
