Our God is still on the throne! He is absolutely sovereign, all powerful, and His perfect righteousness and complete justice will be displayed before the nations.
In Isaiah 6:1 we read: “In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord...” The death of the King seemed a national disaster for Israel, it left them feeling incredibly vulnerable and insecure. And yet, in the midst of the fear and instability, Isaiah saw that the King of kings was still seated securely on His throne with absolute dominion and all authority. He rules and reigns over all earthly powers. He removes kings and raises up others. He is in control of all of human history as well as your own personal story. In the midst of chaos and confusion, trust Him today. There is no other God beside Him. Darkness and deception will not prevail. Yahweh will have His way. Nothing and no one can deter him. Fix your eyes, not on what you see, but on what His Word says. He knows what He’s doing. call of Jesus is always towards brokenness.
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: with two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.’ At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.”
“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.”
“Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.”
“May he judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.”
“The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory...”
