Week 3 – March 31
The Bible reminds us we have always had a King, after all. Now we won’t fully realize what this means until He returns, but when He does I believe verses like the ones above will become more dazzlingly real than any fairytale book or movie. The scales from our eyes will fall off and we will realize that all the while we trusted, our King watched over us. All the while we worried, our King was planning and preparing. All the while the defeats and darkness of this world seemed to grow, our King was calmly in control. All the while we longed for what we couldn’t truly put our fingers on, our King was being readied for the day and hour of His appearing.
Jesus Christ will come again when we least expect it (always a good trait of a good king). In the meantime and in-between time, we’d best get to work growing calluses on our knees. Bowing and kneeling in worship and prayer. Why? Certainly not because we have to in the here and now… but because we won’t be able to help it in the then and there. When Jesus Christ returns, all knees will bend and every tongue will confess that He is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
So take heart… your bleating prayers are perfect! Helpless sheep are some of the most prized beings on the lands owned by a good King.
