Vital signs- Wednesday, January 24th, 2024

With news of scandal, tragedy, devastation, heartache and war constantly at our finger tips it is easy to let confusion, fear and anxiety blur our perspective. Slowly we begin to give authority to these feelings. We wonder where God is in the midst of it all. What is He doing? Where has He gone? 

Isaiah 6 says, “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple... ‘Woe to me!’ I cried. ‘I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

The nation of Judah prospered under King Uzziah’s reign. His death would have been a time of sadness and sorrow for the people. But in that same year, in the middle of grief and pain, Isaiah saw the Lord on His throne. 

The throne of heaven is not empty. The throne of heaven is occupied. And like Isaiah, when we see God on His throne our perspective changes. It does not mean things are always good, that we won’t face opposition or conflict, or that our hearts won’t break. But we can trust that God has not abandoned us or forgotten his promise to save. 

In Psalm 73 Asaph cries out to God — afflicted, punished, betrayed, and confused, then he enters the sanctuary of God. In the presence of God, Scripture says Asaph “understood their final destiny.” When we see God we can accurately weigh what we are walking through. 

We can see that God is greater than our problems and our circumstances. 

”When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me— Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.“

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭73‬:‭16‬-‭17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Father, today we declare that fear doesn’t get to sit on Your throne. We know that confidence is faith in You and fear is faith in the enemy. So we’re putting all of our trust in You today. Take your rightful place as King of our hearts. We praise You for giving us a kingdom that cannot be shaken. All the praise is Yours, the Ever Almighty, for only You are worthy! . Show us your Glory.

In Jesus Name

Team Wade loves you and is praying for you ❤️👊
