It happened again this morning. In Psalm 97:9 and Psalm 99:1 we read that the Lord reigns. Whether one acknowledges it or not, it is true. Further whether one acknowledges it or not, one eventually will, Philippians 2:10 – 11 assures us that all will acknowledge the rule of God.
Then I came to Micah 7:8, specifically the last clause in the verse, “Though I dwell in darkness, the LORD is a light for me.” It dawned on me (pun not intended) that the source of this light in darkness is a settled confidence in the sovereign reign of God. If He does not reign the light in the darkness is an illusion, a false hope. If he does it is the highest form of security.
Our God reigns, His light is true.
