During church yesterday we sang a song and the words went like this:
So rejoice be glad rejoice O my soul
For the Lord your God
He reigns forever more
I rejoice cause My God Reigns
My God reigns and I dance the dance of praise
My God reigns with a shout I will proclaim
My God reigns and I worship without shame
My God reigns and I will rejoice for my God reigns.
I was caught up in this song as I thought of the horrible things of this life that long to reign over us. I thought about the times in my life where I waited for the outcome of some horrible circumstance to see if I would survive this one. I have given reign to my circumstances one too many times and today I’m glad because my God reigns. He reigns over sickness, abuse, abandonment, cruelty, sadness, cancer, crying, anger, hopelessness and hurt. He reigns over hard days, and long days. He reigns over bad days and good days. He heals the sick, redeems the broken, sets the captives free and restores hope. He is God, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the beginning and the end, the Great I AM and He is the King that reigns over my life and my circumstance.
Today I’m grateful I have for my King and I rejoice for my God reigns!
