Thanks, Jesus, for the victory YOU bring!

“They called to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?’ “ (v 16-17 NIV)
The very One who strikes fear into those described here as about to face judgment is You, Father. You have supreme authority over all things in Your creation–and that means me too. You choose when You will act. You choose what You’ll supply. You set the limits for all creatures, for instance, the rider on the fourth horse was given power only over one-fourth of the earth to kill, not the whole earth, not his own discretion. YOU are the Sovereign Lord.
Father, here is my heart, my life, my things, my relationships, my future… Would You govern them completely? Help me to submit to Your sovereign will and to trust Your unrelenting love for me to bring forth only what YOU know is BEST for me as You make me just like Jesus. Amen.
