Heaven Rules

January 4, 2024 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

“Your kingdom will be restored to you as soon as you acknowledge that Heaven rules.” —Daniel 4:26

Heaven rules. No phrase pulses more frequently in my mind and heart than this one. It’s on the screensaver photo of my phone. It’s printed on the mug I use each morning. It’s featured on artwork hanging in my study.

“Heaven rules” is a right-sizing truth putting our view of God, ourselves, and our problems in proper perspective.

I love being surrounded by reminders of this simple but profound truth. It has become for me an overarching, undergirding meta-theme, foundational to how I view all of Scripture and all of life. And over and over again, when I have found myself in tumultuous waters, it has been both an anchor and a life preserver for my soul.

My hope is that the promise and the perspective contained in the phrase will become deeply ingrained in the fabric of your being, that it will bring you comfort and courage in every painful season of your life, and that it will become your reflexive, trusting response to every troubling development in our upside-down world.
