Your God Reigns!

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’” – Isaiah 52:7

I wish I could paint a pretty picture about life in the End Times, but the Bible says we will face “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1) and intense spiritual warfare. So if you feel like you’ve been in a battle lately, it’s not your imagination! A vast satanic conspiracy is underway to “wear down the saints of the Highest One” (Daniel 7:25).

It’s significant that when our faithful and true Lord returns, He will come as a mighty warrior, dressed for battle: “I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war…And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS (Revelation 19:11-16).

Notice the good news here: As followers of Christ, the Bible promises that we’re on the winning side. At the end of the age, Jesus will return and take His rightful place as the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords,” and we will reign with Him over all creation (Revelation 22:5).

Finding Victory Today

“But David,” you may be thinking, “I KNOW Jesus will reign when He returns, but what am I supposed to do in the meantime? How can I find victory in my life today?”

That’s a very important question, and the answer is found in the verse I quoted above. The same passage that says Jesus will be the “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” also reminds us of a powerful theme found throughout the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation…

Our Lord is FAITHFUL and TRUE!

At a time when the whole world is experiencing prophetic shockwaves (Hebrews 12:25-28), no other attributes are more important than these. As the very foundations of the world’s economic and social institutions are shaken, people are discovering they’ve put their trust in many things that are UNfaithful and UNtrue.

Who can honestly claim that Wall Street is faithful and true…or the housing market…or the government? That’s why the Scriptures tell us, “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man” (Psalm 118:8).

Sometimes even our loved ones may let us down. But David learned, “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close” (Psalm 27:10).

Though everything around us may seem unreliable, our faith can be rooted in an unshakable kingdom and an unchanging Person who tells us: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). Everything else may change, but He’s “the same yesterday, today, and forever“(v. 8)!

Great Is His Faithfulness

I hear from many of our Inspiration Partners who are experiencing great challenges in their finances, health, or relationships these days. One Partner named Velecia wrote to us in frustration and anger when her husband died, leaving her at age 50 as a widow and deeply in debt. But now the Lord has given her a great job and erased her debt, causing her to testify…

“God is faithful and is working things out!”

I know what it’s like to feel like the prophet Jeremiah when he said, “My strength and my hope have perished from the LORD” (Lamentations 3:18). Yet in the midst of his trials, Jeremiah experienced God’s faithfulness more deeply than ever before:

This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness
(Lamentations 3:21-23).

My friend, I won’t pretend life is always easy. But no matter what difficult circumstances you’re facing today, God wants to show you His faithful love and provision, just as the wonderful old hymn proclaims:

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Opening Heaven’s Bounty

I am not only are praying God will show Himself “Faithful and True” to relieve you of your fears and cares amid life’s battles—I’m also believing Him to bring you a breakthrough of abundance and prosperity.

John saw “heaven opened” as Jesus was about to return, and we’re convinced God wants to open the floodgates of Heaven’s blessings for YOU today!

As you are faithful to Him with your time, talent, and treasure, He promises to “open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10). Not only that, but He also “will rebuke the devourer for your sakes” (v. 11)—reversing every negative situation the enemy has brought to your life.

Are you ready for a new day of blessing? The One who is “Faithful and True” loves you and is ready to bless you like never before—enabling you to BE an even greater blessing to others (Genesis 12:2).
