Over All

The Lord is king for ever and ever. – Psalm 10:16


When is the last time you thought “It’s been a day like no other?” Whether it’s deepest joy or greatest grief, the experience molds the shape of your personal story. Life on Earth is full of physical boundaries like the speed of light and the force of gravity. There is also a spiritual boundary equally true, marking the edge and shape of the universe. Jesus Christ is King over all of it.

Before His incarnation, Christ was present with the Father, participating in Creation. “All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:3). After His death and resurrection, He ascended back to heaven assuming His throne “after he had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God” (Mark 16:19).

Today Jesus Christ still rules over all, including time – past, present, and future – the physical universe, all things seen and unseen, every creature and all knowledge. There is no power greater than His, no usurper strong enough to remove Him from office and no subversive plan clever enough to overthrow His rule. If you have made Jesus Christ King over your life, then you can be assured the leading edge of your hope is the same as the measure of His grace… infinite.

Pray for those in positions of leadership on Earth today to consider their standing before King Jesus. Ask that those who have not acknowledged His Sovereignty will submit to His mercy, discovering the shape of His grace and experiencing a new day unlike any other.

Today’s Verse: Psalm 10:16

The Lord is king forever and ever;
 the nations perish from his land.

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son,
    today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

“I will be to him a father,
    and he shall be to me a son”?

And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels winds,
    and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
    the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
