Hearing from the One in charge can change everything!

Bad corporate meetingIt had been a tough year, the organization I was a part of had struggled and faced incredible challenges. Our future as an organization seemed in doubt. Something had to happen – things had to change! We had all been gathered for an important meeting – there was going to be a big announcement… anxiety filled the room…

But what we heard that day changed everything! The person leading our organization had made precisely the right decisions! We would survive… We would recover! Success was in sight!

The passage I read this morning from Psalms left me feeling like the scenario you just read! Sometimes it feels like Christianity is under assault! Biblical values are abandoned or rejected! Persecution of godly, righteous people is increasing… I could go on…

But then the Sovereign Lord speaks – the King of all Kings and Creator of all things has His say about the future! It’s found in Psalm 98 – Here’s a taste of what it has to say…

“Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made known his salvation; he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations. He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness…. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God!

“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!

“Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together BEFORE THE LORD, FOR HE COMES TO JUDGE THE EARTH. HE WILL JUDGE THE WORLD WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND THE PEOPLES WITH EQUITY.”

Hey, it’s going to be OK… He’s still in charge! You should feel better after that – I know I did!
