"Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end....from henceforth even forever." (Isaiah 9:7).
Jesus is Lord. He rules in heave, on earth, and below. There is no kingdom, power, nor authority anywhere that trumps Him. As one poet said, "He has walked by the graveside of earth's fallen kings who opposed Him, and yet He still reigneth."
He reigns in the affairs of men, and rules over all things that occur. There is nothing anywhere that usurps His authority nor exceeds His power to handle. He works all things after the counsel of His will, and causes things, whether good or bad, to work together for our good in all thing at all times.
There is no end to His love, no end to His power, no end to His goodness, and no end to His kingdom. No end in sight -- nor even beyond that!!
And for any man or woman, boy or girl, who has received this King into their heart -- though it be fractured into many pieces -- a promise is made by God that of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.
Government is what Christ brings to our discarded souls, and Peace is what results when He reigns in our lives.
Would you know this peace of which I speak? Then yield your heart to the government of Christ over your affections, your appetites, your ambitions, your aspirations, and even your aggravations. And you will experience what only the Prince of Peace can give you.
Peace, Love and Joy -- with no end in sight.....EVER!
