His Mark Endures


Men rise with power that we could never ever surmount, but we take comfort in the fact that God in His great power can overcome all, but then this morning I had a sudden thing come to me.

Yes, He is all powerful, but He doesn't need to extend it to overcome the nations. He created them and He doesn't even need to lift His little finger to bring them smashing down again.

It is for men to struggle and rise and fall in their pride. Jesus had one supreme struggle and now it is over. He rules while bunches of sorry rebels throughout the ages try to make their little mark on the sliding sands of time before they get washed away in it, but we Christians don't need to.

Our mark is made.

It endures.

His Kingdom is our future.

  1. I have no words. Amen to ALL the wisdom in this post! Thank you for this reminder that indeed, Jesus only had "one supreme struggle" and that He doesn't need to extend even half of his power to change things on earth. What tremendous peace and comfort that reminder brings!
    May I assume that this year's political situation helped shaped this post? Because it certainly is fitting. :)

    Your last line is oh so perfect. I just love everything about this post.

    1. Natalie,
      Yes, you might kinda say it did. :) I was feeling a bit out of control about several things this summer so this post was a bit of a washing away of some of that taut confusion if that makes sense?

      Your comment meant so much to me, thanks for leaving it, friend! :)
