WORLD CRISIS ABOUNDS – WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS?
WORLD CRISIS ABOUNDS
world crisis abounds
fear, panic and worry everywhere
resting, hoping, and trusting in God the King
When I look at the instability of the kingdoms and nations of this world and its leaders, I am more grateful than ever to be a part of God’s Kingdom.
A Kingdom that is unshakable, a Kingdom that has no end, a Kingdom whose citizens span every race, nation, societal level and color, a Kingdom whose King is our Great and Mighty and Matchless God.
Who is like our God? – Who can withstand Him, who can defy Him, who can counsel Him, who can thwart His purposes, who can undo what He has decreed, who can open what He shuts, who can shut what He opens – who is like our God?
Our God is Great, Mighty and Matchless!
“Remember [carefully] the former things [which I did] from ages past;For I am God, and there is no one else;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
Declaring the end and the result from the beginning,
And from ancient times the things which have not [yet] been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will do all that pleases Me and fulfills My purpose”
(Isaiah 46:9, 10 – AMP)
“HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD” – (WORLD EDITION)
FEAT. CHRIS TOMLIN
“Great is our [majestic and mighty] Lord and abundant in strength;
His understanding is inexhaustible [infinite, boundless].”
(Psalms 147:5 – AMP)
“There is none like You, O Lord;
You are great, and great is Your mighty and powerful name.
Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?
For it is appropriate and it is Your due!
For among all the wise men of the nations
And in all their kingdoms,
There is none like You.”
(Jeremiah 10:6,7 – AMP)
In the face of all the crisis that abounds in our world today, know that we serve a Great God and are citizens of a Great Kingdom.
This is the truth that we must hold fast to.
This is the truth that will anchor our souls.
Our focus on this truth or lack thereof will determine our level of peace or fear.
Our focus on this truth or lack thereof will determine whether we walk on the tumultuous waters of our times or sink in them.
If we keep our eyes on the reality of the Greatness of our God, and on the fact that He is King over all, and on the fact that we belong to His Kingdom which rules over all, we will have more peace and be water walkers, but if we allow our focus to shift onto the crisis that abounds in this world and onto the instability of its leaders, we will have more fear and sink.
Where will your focus be?
Will it be God and His Kingdom or on world leaders and the abounding worldwide crisis?
Today God says:
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
(Psalms 46:10 – NIV, 1984)
“The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all [the universe].”
(Psalms 103:19 – AMP)
“Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal; you never get voted out of office. God always does what he says, and is gracious in everything he does.”
(Psalms 145:13 – MSG)
“God reigns over the nations;
God sits on His holy throne.”
(Psalms 47:8 – NKJV)
“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen.”
(I Timothy 1:17 – KJV)
“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.”
(Isaiah 26:3, 4 – NIV, 1984)
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
(Psalms 46:1 – NIV, 1984)
