"Heaven is my throne" says our Daddy God.
Did you know that heaven--or rather the heavens--is expansive and growing?
The American astronomer Edwin Hubble made the observations in 1925 and was the first to prove that the universe is expanding. He proved that there is a direct relationship between the speeds of distant galaxies and their distances from Earth. This is now known as Hubble's Law
So, what does that say about God's throne?
His throne is ever-expanding!
What does this mean? His authority is never-ending.
In fact, His glory and power over all things seen and unseen is not static.
Why should we care?
His authority over any or all our cares is great. Anything new that comes into conflict in our lives, His throne, His authority has that covered.
We have the promise of this related in the Psalms:
"The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool." (Psalm 110:1)
God the Father is seated, and Jesus is seated at His right hand.
God's throne expands, which means that His enemies--our enemies--face certain defeat, even the ones we have not met yet!
Jesus provides us the victory, of course:
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." (Romans 8:37)
"[H]e [God the Father] raised him [Jesus] from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. (Ephesians 1: 20-23)
Guess what? We are seated in Christ Jesus at our Father's right hand:
"But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly placesin Christ Jesus:" (Ephesians 2:4-6)
God's reign is forever and expanding. Our rule with Him in Christ is growing as well!
No matter what challenges we may face, no matter how unique they may be, God's throne, God's power and authority over these hateful challenges is great.
Let us also not forget that our Father makes our enemies our footstool--and that for God, the entire earth is His footstool, too!
