Darkness Prevails Only Until Final Judgment is Handed Down - November 9, 2020

 Morning by Morning, November 9 - Darkness Prevails Only Until Final Judgment is Handed Down

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Put Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart, as I listen for Your leading. ...
"As for me, Daniel, my spirit was troubled within me, and the visions of my head terrified me.... As I looked, this horn made war with the holy ones and was prevailing over them, until the Ancient One came; then judgment was given for the holy ones of the Most High, and the time arrived when the holy ones gained possession of the kingdom" (Daniel 7:15-22).
Like Daniel, our spirits can be troubled by what we see. In the spiritual wars taking place in the heavenly realms around us, there are times when it seems the darkness is prevailing over the light. Yet there is only One who decrees His Final Judgment. There is only One who will determine who will gain possession of the kingdom.
Come, Holy Spirit. Give us the grace of persevering faith. Let us not grow weary in our prayers or overwhelmed by what we see. Guard our minds from doubt and our hearts from unbelief. Empower us to persist until the time of Your judgment to come.
You showed Daniel the seasons of time when what was wrong seemed to prevail. But You always showed him an appointed time to come when You would set things right:

"As I watched,
thrones were set in place,
    and an Ancient One took His throne,
His clothing was white as snow,
    and the hair of His head like pure wool;
His throne was fiery flames,
    and its wheels were burning fire.
A stream of fire issued
    and flowed out from His presence.
A thousand thousands served Him,
    and ten thousand times ten thousand stood attending Him.
The court sat in judgment,
    and the books were opened" (Daniel 7:9-10).
You are the One who sits in judgment. There is no other. You alone issue Your decree of Final Judgment from the throne of Your court.
"As I watched in the night visions,
I saw one like 'the Son of Man' (NKJV),
    coming with the clouds of heaven.
And He came to the Ancient One
    and was presented before Him.
To Him was given dominion
    and glory and kingship,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not pass away,
and His kingship is one
    that shall never be destroyed!" (Daniel 7:13-14).
So no matter what we see, no matter what seems to be prevailing at the time, we know You still sit on Your throne and You still have the last word to make the final decree from Your court. Darkness prevails only until Your Final Judgment is handed down. Your judgments are always right and true. And ultimately, Your judgments will always prevail. For Your dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away; and Your kingship is an eternal kingship that shall never be destroyed! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

My friend, may you persist in persevering faith, no matter what seems to be prevailing at the time, until we receive the Final Judgment of the Ancient One who always has the last word, in Jesus name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
