Who’s Throne

“When your shoulders droop under life’s pressure, get off the throne!”
The pandemic. The election. The US capital. The media. Social media. Any one of these can lead to personal unrest depending on your point of view.
I’ve said it. Others have said it, “Remember, God is on the throne. We know how the Book ends.”
This answer still begs the question, “Which throne?” Yes, God is on the throne of the universe. The very throne Satan envied, wanted and still wants to sit on.
Yet there is another important throne – the one in your heart. It’s the seat of your will and choices.
The Jesus believer has been given Christ’s mind and nature; thus, they can make the right choices.
If the truth that God is on the throne of the universe is to mean anything to them, however, they must choose to let Jesus sit on the throne of their heart.
How do you know who’s sitting there? Examine your feelings and choices. If you are not experiencing peace, it’s you.
Peace, despite life’s pressures, will only come when you choose to listen to and then follow Jesus, the rightful heir to the throne of your heart.
