Destined to Rule

March 4, 2020

Isaiah 32:1-8

See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. 2 Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. 4 The mind of the rash will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. 5 No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. 6 For the fool speaks folly, his mind is busy with evil: He practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the LORD; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water. 7 The scoundrel’s methods are wicked,

he makes up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. 8 But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.

 

Destined to Rule

 

Obadiah 1:21 says, “And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.”  God is raising up a people of destiny and purpose.  He is coming to rule and reign in and through His saints.  He is coming to be glorified and manifested through them.  Isaiah 60:1-3 says, “”Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” This is not something that we can produce or bring to pass.  This is God’s doing in His fullness of time.  That time is growing very near.  He is opening up the eyes of our understanding.  He is giving us spiritual wisdom and causing us to hear by the Spirit those things, which He is about to bring to pass in the earth.  Even today there is a trumpet sounding in Zion.  It is a trumpet that only the redeemed of the Lord can hear.  It is calling us up unto Him.  We are a people of destiny and purpose that He is preparing.  “A King will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice.”   Jesus Christ is that King of Kings and we are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own possession, through whom He is preparing to rule the nations.  Not all will hear this and not all will receive it, but to those who can let faith arise in your hearts and answer your destiny’s call.  “Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.”  Isn’t this a beautiful portrait of Christ in His people, setting creation free and being the expression of who they are in Christ?

Isn’t it time that we stop looking at what we haven’t been and what we have failed to be?  Isn’t it time that we catch a vision of God’s ultimate plan for those love Him and follow on to know Him.   God has great things in store for us if we will have the ears to hear His call, the eyes to see His vision and the heart to become all that He has called us into.  “It is not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord.”  Soon, the Lord will bring to fruition and completion His great plan and purpose.  Why would we not want to be in the center of His will and given to His purpose?

“A noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.”  There is no nobler plan or noble deed than to set your eyes and heart upon the high calling that you have in Christ Jesus.  Let your noble deeds be those which express His life living in and through you.

Blessings,
