“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.” – Proverbs 21:30-31
Genghis Khan, Ivan the Terrible, Attilla the Hun, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Ilich Lenin and Joseph Stalin are in the top ten names listed in Martin Gilman Wolcott’s book “The Evil 100”. They were men who sought to conquer their world, but time has passed them by as nothing more than stains on the pages of history. Ultimate victory lies in the hands of someone greater.
Solomon was a great king who ruled with the wisdom and power given to him by God. He knew the limits of his authority, the source of his strength and the purpose of his reign. The Lord blessed his kingdom with peace and respect from every corner of his world. All of this came to pass because Solomon acknowledged that his throne was really God’s.
Your life and small world is like Solomon’s kingdom. While you may rule in many ways, your throne is really God’s. The best plan for any kingdom is the Lord’s plan and the ultimate victory rests in Him. If you plan to conquer your world today, make sure that you conquer for and by the Lord… this alone will pass the test of time.
