“Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.”
The new year 2020 is unknown to us. We have no idea what life will be like in the coming weeks and months of this year. There may be many happy occasions, but there will also be many occasions of difficulties and troubles. We may be unsure and feel powerless to handle the issues of our lives.
However, our God has all things under His dominion. Nothing will surprise or frustrate Him because He knows all things and rules over all things! Nothing will weaken or prevent Him from bringing all His good purposes to pass. His dominion endures! His kingdom is everlasting!
Many had attempted to defy and deny God’s greatness and His purposes. Without exception, they all perished like the grass of the field. Generations of men come and go, and none endures forever on this earth. Every man, even in all his greatness, is just like a gasp of breath. Look at all the graves of mighty kings, wealthy men and renowned personalities. They all perished – and together with them, their empires too!
On the contrary, God’s infinite greatness guarantees the permanence of His kingdom. Our God is eternal, and so shall be His kingdom. Therefore, dear children, the new year opens before us the wonders of God’s great power and reign. Let us serve the Lord Jesus Christ, the One who reigns supreme forever, being the King of kings. As we begin a new year, let us rejoice that we can have the goodness of our eternal God, who extends His gracious reign to every generation on this earth.
