Believe: Christmas Devotions
Day 22: Everlasting Dominion
He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed. Daniel 7:14
This close to Christmas Day, nothing is more stressful than still waiting on packages to be delivered. It doesn’t matter how many times you track the packages, check the mailbox, check the porch or go to the post office, they may or may not arrive in time. Whether or not your packages arrive on time or at all is completely out of your control. FedEx and UPS rule over package delivery and if can feel like your Christmas success is dependent on them delivering.
The good news for you is that Jesus, unlike FedEx or UPS, is not dependent on people to deliver his gifts. He delivers his own gifts in his own time. He rules over heaven and earth and nothing will stop him from delivering gifts to you. However, Jesus does not want the arrival of gifts to be the source of your happiness. He wants you to be happy and satisfied knowing how much he loves you and would move heaven and earth for you alone. This Christmas, you can relax and enjoy the holidays and your life because Jesus has always been and will always be in control and he is for you. No one wants to see you happy more than Jesus. Believe in the Almighty power of Jesus this Christmas.
