DAILY READINGS: Esther 9:1-10:3; Malachi 3:7 4:6; Rev. 22:6-21

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. Exodus 15:18

Exodus 15 is a great song of deliverance. It is the first song in the Bible and concludes with a glorious hope to a newly delivered people. This is the first time we are assured that our God reigns forever and ever. The Bible consistently echoes this theme, “The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.” This great truth has brought consolation to His suffering church down through the ages and as this year draws to a close, it brings consolation to our waiting hearts. In a world that has rejected the Lord Jesus, may we live expectantly, knowing that God is still on the throne and one day soon, He will reign forever and ever! Hallelujah! —Jim Comte

Jesus shall reign where’er the sun, doth His successive journeys run.
His name like sweet perfume shall rise, with every morning sacrifice. —Isaac Watts
