We’re often bombarded with peoples’ thoughts, opinions and predictions. Some of these things can be true while others maybe not so much. From what we wear to how much we weigh, how we vote to what the future will look like, none of us have to go far to find someone trying to tell us how it is.

Sometimes, by allowing these things to be the primary voice, we can find ourselves getting a little overwhelmed by uncertainty. And uncertainty can often breed anxiety.

But as believers in Jesus these things don’t have to rule or define us. Our confidence is not in what the world throws at us. Our confidence is in Jesus’ reign and what He has to say through His word and by His Spirit.

The song The Final Say was birthed out of the scripture in Ephesians 1 that says, “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” In the message translation it speaks of Jesus having ‘THE FINAL SAY’ over everything. It’s in this that we have confidence. It’s in Him that we put our trust. This promise is for now and the future. On a personal level and a global level.

Rather than listening to what the world has to offer today, why not listen to what Jesus says over you and over the nations? Let’s fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
