Honor the One "Who Sits in the Heavens" - January 12, 2021

Morning by Morning, January 12 - Honor the One "Who Sits in the Heavens"

Good morning, Lord Jesus. You rule and reign from Your throne in the heavens, and I welcome You to rule and reign form Your throne in my heart -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God. ...
"Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
'Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.'
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
'Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.'
I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
'You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You 
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.'
Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him" (Psalm 2:1-12).
Lord, the nations are raging. The people are plotting. The kings of the earth are setting themselves in their positions of power and the rulers of our world a taking counsel together to accomplish their purposes and their plans.
But You still sit in the heavens. You still rule and reign in Your sovereignty. Though they seek to come against You and Your plans and purposes, seeking to "break" of all constraints of Your authority, seeking to "cast away" all limitations of the principles and precepts of Your Word as the foundational law of the land, You're not worried. You're not afraid. 
You're still full of Your peace and Your joy. You can even "laugh" from the heavens, even in the midst of all that breaks Your heart and kindles Your wrath, because You already see how You will redeem it all, even use it all, to fulfill Your Word and work out Your will in the fullness of time.
So by the power of Your grace, by an outpouring of Your Spirit, let us and our leaders "be wise" and "be instructed." Let us "serve the Lord" in the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord, honoring You alone as our King of kings and Lord of lords, honoring You as the Anointed One, the only-begotten One, the Son of God, set upon Your holy hill and set as King of All upon our hearts. Let us honor You. Let us draw near to You in both the fear of the Lord and deeper intimacy with the Lord to "kiss the Son."
By a move of Your Spirit, break down the strongholds over our land with Your "rod of iron." "Dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel" all that's been created and exalted in the minds of man and over our land, rather than molded by the hand and heart of God. Uproot and remove all that would resist Your will that we would honor the inalienable right of all to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And establish Your prophetic decree that we would be "one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all." "Declare (Your) decree" of Your redemptive destiny over this land and over us all.

Even now, let this nation still be part of “Your inheritance” of the “sheep nations” rather than the “goat nations” to fulfill our calling and destiny in Your plans to send Your Word and the Gospel of Your Kingdom to “the ends of the earth for Your possession.” For “blessed are all those who put their trust in (You).” In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

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

My friend, may you draw near to the Lord in both the fear of the Lord and deeper intimacy with the Lord to kiss the Son and trust the Lord to be at work in all we're going through to still fulfill His plans and purposes in your life and our land and all the earth, in Jesus name. Please pray the same for me. And I continue to join with you in prayer for our nation through these challenging times. God bless you, my friend! 

Standing firm with you in faith,
in our hearts and in our land.
