The Lord God Reigns!
13 September 2020
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thundering, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
Our theme text this month from Rev 19:6, is a useful reminder for us to consider and acknowledge that God still reigns over our world.
Our world has not been the same since COVID-19 broke. Sadly, many have died and more still dying, livelihoods threatened, economy of nations dipped, fear and anxiety is in the air, uncertainty of what the future hold rend most hearts. It is all gloom and doom, and many have asked the question, “Where is God in all of these?"
I think it is a valid question. In response to the question, some might say, the creator has abandoned the world He created. Some say, God is punishing the world of her many sins, or God has lost control of the world to the devil who is now afflicting the world with pain and anguish through COVID-19.
I choose to take encouragement from our theme verse that, the Lord God Omnipotent, i.e. the all powerful God, still reigns over our world.
We were forewarned in John 16:33 which reads “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
I would like to believe COVID-19 is part of the tribulation of our times but the good news is that hope is not lost. God said, we should be of good cheer because, He has overcome the world, for this, He deserves our praise.
Hallelujah, our God has overcome COVID-19. It will not obliterate our world.
I encourage you not just to believe that God still reigns over our world but to also declare it like, “the voice of a great multitude" by shouting, "Praise the Lord!", Hallelujah for the Lord God almighty reigns.
