Jesus Reigns Supreme Above All Earthly Kings: Finding Peace In Troubling Times

As you observe the unsettling events of the world, you may find your heart troubled. Remember, Jesus is on the throne and is above all earthly kings. He says of Himself that He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end, and that He was, and is, and is to come. We don’t see this in full at this moment, but this truth is at the very foundation of heaven and earth, and one day, Jesus will complete the work that He has started.

Jesus, Who Was

John writes of Jesus, saying that Jesus was in the beginning and that He created all things. Jesus is the same one who has been there since the beginning, who shed tears over Jerusalem because they failed to see what was the source of peace. He was in the garden, questioning if there was another way besides the cross. He willingly offered Himself for the world’s sins, triumphing over sin and death through His resurrection, and now, He sits at the Father’s right hand.

Jesus, Who Is

Jesus is alive and seated on the throne, making intercession for us. He is there in the world’s brokenness and the joys and pains of your life. As the psalmist proclaims, 

I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord,Who made heaven and earth. 

Psalm 121:1-2

Even in the darkest moments, Jesus is present and working His perfect will.

Jesus, Who Is To Come

We wait for Him, who is faithful and true. He will come again. He taught us to pray, “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” One day, He will answer that prayer. He will establish His everlasting Kingdom, where righteousness and peace dwell. It won’t be long now. Look up your redemption draws near.
