22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
As Paul begins this letter to the Ephesians he closes his opening statements with a powerful truth. All things are under the feet of Christ. All authority in heaven and Earth belong to Him and are under his dominion.
What an amazing reminder. As a storm looms off the coast and our city is in turmoil, it is nice to be reminded that all authority in heaven and earth belongs to Jesus. Knowing this to be true I respond in two ways.
-Pray. If Jesus is in charge, then any requests I have should go to Him. He is the boss.
-Trust. I must trust that Jesus is perfect in all His ways and that anything He directs or allows is for the greater good and will somehow be used for His glory.
I trust you Jesus. All authority is yours. Everything is under your feet, including me, my life, my family and my city.
