“His dominion is an eternal dominion; His kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth.” Daniel 4:34-35
“Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him!” Psalm 115:3
“The LORD does whatever pleases Him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths!” Psalm 135:6
The Lord Jesus Christ is the sole Lord and Lawgiver of His Church. All His laws proceed from His loving heart–and are framed with a view to His people’s good, and His own glory. They are all merciful, just, and necessary. They cannot be dispensed with–or His glory would be obscured, and His people injured.
Jesus reigns over His people, He reigns in them, He reigns for them! He reigns . . .
over them, by His Word and servants,
in them, by His grace and Spirit,
for them, by His wise and holy providence.
He can do as He will–for His power is absolute!
He will do as He has said–for His faithfulness is unimpeachable!
Every being in creation is under His eye!
Every movement in the universe, is by His power and permission!
Nothing is too insignificant for Him to regard.
Nothing is too cunning to escape His all-penetrating eye! Nothing in all creation is hidden from His sight. All things are naked and open before Him–and sin has no covering.
He does according to His will in Heaven, earth, and Hell! He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers! He brings princes to naught, and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing! He remains King forever!
His people love His person, His government, and His laws! Whatever the sovereign King does–pleases all His redeemed people.
He is the omnipotent Lord God–and He reigns and rules over all!
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!” Revelation 19:6
