What a relief to know that God rules over all! In his devotional, Ed M. reminds us today of that truth from Obadiah.

Despite the doom and gloom of Obadiah, his final words glow with hope—“the kingdom will be the Lord’s,” Obadiah 21. His purposes will be realized, His plan accomplished. In the end, there will be one King, one Lord over all, Zechariah 14:9. Daniel saw it coming, Daniel 2:44. We see it happening, Colossians 2:9,10.

The kingdom of God is a major theme of Scripture. Some say it is the main theme. God is sovereign and moves all of history and humanity toward his designed goal. Let us cooperate with his plan, rather than resist it.

Focus question: How can I submit more and more to the rule of God in my life?
