He's got the whole world in His hands

scripture from the infallible word of God is in ivory. my thoughts are pink. couldn't help but ponder these scriptures with the craziness that seems to be all around. the unrest, the lack of peace, and the fear that people possess.

Psalm 2
1 Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one.
3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
4 But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury.
6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.”
7 The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father.
8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.
9 You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’”
10 Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth!
11 Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities— for his anger flares up in an instant.

He knows the past, the present, and the future. He knows the incredibly poor choices that the world will continue to make year after year. He knows the few good ones that will be made along the way too! He alone is in control, no president, no king, no movie star.

12 b)But what joy for all who take refuge in him!

and then look at this promise from Philippians 3

20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

i should not fear the future, the events, the times, the evil, the curses that run through this world of ours. my Savior is on the throne of it all. He knows it all, and controls it! He is good and merciful to those who take refuge in Him. Have a day filled with the peace and the joy of the Lord today!
