Daily Reflections: A Daily Digital Devotional

Still and Always

Our God is in heaven and does whatever he pleases. —Psalm 115:3

I can’t recall a time when I didn’t know and believe that Heaven rules at some level. But increasingly, this way of viewing the complexities and crises of life in this broken world has captured my heart. It has become a lens through which I see and process everything.

“Heaven rules” reminds us that our God in heaven is actively controlling and working through every single happening, event, and circumstance taking place on the earth, and He is doing it to accomplish His good, eternal, redemptive purposes.

He is doing it despite whatever you may hear concerning the state of our world while watching or scrolling through the news of the day. He is doing it despite whatever pops up as you check your email or social media feeds after you emerge from a long meeting. He is doing it despite the nervousness that’s ticking under your wristwatch while you’re perched in yet another doctor’s office, listening for your name to be called.

Heaven is still ruling. Heaven is always ruling.
