Psalm 93

1THE LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty; the Lord is robed, He has girded Himself with strength and power; the world also is established, that it cannot be moved.2Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting.

3The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up the roaring of their waves.

4The Lord on high is mightier and more glorious than the noise of many waters, yes, than the mighty breakers and waves of the sea.

5Your testimonies are very sure; holiness [apparent in separation from sin, with simple trust and hearty obedience] is becoming to Your house, O Lord, forever.

My Reflections

As I was reading this and watching the videos, verse 4 stuck out at me.

4The Lord on high is mightier and more glorious than the noise of many waters, yes, than the mighty breakers and waves of the sea. (AMP)

Mightier and more glorious than the noise of many waters. Have you ever been to a place with many waters? How about a Waterfall? (Take a listen: Top of Niagara Falls.  Take a listen to Linton Falls. Take a listen to Water falls Watkins Glen State Park (consider how far away they are from the falls!)) I think you get the picture, err, sound of that. God, Our God, is mightier and more glorious than any of those!

And then it goes on to say:

… mighty breakers and waves of the sea

This doesn’t say little breakers – it says MIGHTY breakers. Check out what they can do.

I think you get the idea. Yeah … Our God .. He is a MIGHTY God!

Prayer

Ah, yes, Lord – You are mighty! You reign over all. Some may deny You. Some may ignore You. Yet, just like the waves that are crashing and roaring right now, that many can not see or hear – You are there and You reign! Your strength is unmatched. You are unmovable, unstoppable, all-powerful. You were before time was and You will be after time is no more. You majesty is evident by the beauty and power that surrounds us in the testimony of nature. A simple wave can sweep man off their feet, yet You have created the whole ocean. You are holy, endless, powerful, and majestic. You are God! Amen!
