GOD IS ON THE THRONE - January 17, 2022 from Max Lucado's Daily Devotional
From Mike: In one fashion or another many people are facing struggles in life. Health, marriage, children, older parents, spouses health, struggling with the death of a loved one, job, drugs etc. The last paragraph is a message we need to carry with us at all times. You don't have to go to the church building to worship Him! In your prayers give appraise and thanks!
"God’s answer for troubled times has always been the same: heaven has an occupied throne."
"During the eighth century BC, ancient Judah enjoyed a time of relative peace, thanks to the steady leadership of King Uzziah. He kept enemies at bay for fifty-two years, then Uzziah died. Isaiah the prophet was worried. What would happen now that Uzziah was gone?"
"Or, in your case, what will happen now that your job is gone? Or your health has diminished? Does God have a message for his people when calamity strikes? He certainly had a word for Isaiah. The prophet wrote, “I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up…” (Isaiah 6:1). Uzziah’s throne was empty, but God’s was occupied. He was, and is, alive, on the throne, and worthy of our endless worship."
