Ultimate authority rests with God who sits upon His throne.
God is still on the throne,
And He will remember His own;
Though trials may press us
And burdens distress us
He never will leave us alone.
The story is told of a little boy who, when introduced to this chorus for the first time in his Sunday school, came home and told his mother:
Asked his mother, “what was it?”
“God is still on the phone,” said the little lad.
Well that wasn’t exactly what he had been taught.
When a man or woman, boy or girl says, “God be merciful to me a sinner,” the message goes straight through to the throne.
The throne of God is not only a throne of righteousness but a throne of grace!
“Stay back until you are good enough to approach.”
“I will put on you the robes of righteousness that are provided for you by Christ – now you are good enough.”
