There is a big difference between believing in God and knowing that God reigns supreme over your life. Many times the reason we do not get the victory in certain areas of our lives is because God does not reign supreme in our lives.
God wants us to understand that if we hide ourselves in him there is nothing we cannot accomplish, there is nothing that can defeat us and there is nothing that he will not do for us. This is what Psalms 91 is all about, this one Psalm alone should be enough for us to understand that we need to let him reign supreme in our lives.
Too many times people love to say the words but do not back it up with the actions. However the beauty about our God is he is the God of second chances, he does not strike us off because of our short comings, but he shows us grace and mercy so that through the blood of Jesus we can stay Justified and set a part unto him.
We are not perfect but we are in the process of being perfected, this is why God will allow us to be tempted and tested by the enemy, but through all of this he is still in control because he will not allow us to be tested beyond what we can take:
1Co_10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is unusual for human beings. But God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. Instead, along with the temptation he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to endure it.
To reign is to have it all under control, therefore nothing takes God by surprise!
That sickness you are going through, God already knew about it, that death in your family, God knew that too. Challenges at work or in your business, God has allowed it and is using it to build character in you to set you up for success. However you have to believe that and walk by faith and not by sight:
Rom 8:28 And we know that for those who love God, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good.
To allow God to reign in your life is to give him full access and that means complete submission to his will, but if we do this, the byproduct is this:
Jas_4:7 Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
Submission allows God to now defend you correctly without you impeding the process, remember the battle is not yours, it is the Lords.
When you know Gods reigns supreme in your life you will worship him in spirit and in truth, you will not have any spiritual arrogance or a sense of spiritual superiority gained out of a legalistic observance of the law or church activity. Having God reign over your life bring liberty because you are truly being lead by his spirit:
2Co_3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
We should have the confidence in our God reigns no matter what the situation we are going through, no matter who is saying what or doing what. We are Kingdom people and as Kingdom people we fall under the protection of the KING!
This world will try to lie to us because the enemy uses it as a tool to distract us, however if we continue to look up we will be directed, instead of being depressed because we are looking inwardly or being confused because we are looking outwardly.
So matter what you go through this week and beyond, no matter what it looks like on the outside. No matter what people say to you or are saying to you, never forget this one ultimate truth:
OUR GOD REIGNS!
