In the chaos

Last week I was talking to one of our church elders about the Canadian federal election. He said, ‘No matter who wins, God is still in control.’

He wasn’t being dismissive. Elections matter. What he was doing was demonstrating great confidence in the almightiness of God.

God is on his throne. As we read in Psalm 103:19: “The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.”

It’s helpful to remember this, whatever you’re dealing with.

–When your life is in chaos, Christ is still King.
–When your country seems unsure, Christ is still King.
–When tomorrow feels uncertain, Christ is still King.

I’m the youngest of three brothers. When I was on the playground when I was small, I never really felt too threatened by anything. Why? Because somewhere nearby, I always had two big brothers hanging around.

The same idea is true with God—but sooooo much more.

When you know that God is in control, you’re less likely to agonize when you’re not.

Take heart. In the chaos, Christ is still King.

By Matthew Ruttan
