the LORD is robed; he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. 2 Your throne is established from of old;
you are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
4 Mightier than the thunders of many waters,
mightier than the waves of the sea,
the LORD on high is mighty!
5 Your decrees are very trustworthy;
holiness befits your house,
O LORD, forevermore.
Take heart, our Lord reigns. The most restless sea, the most violent earthquake, the most chaotic uprising, they are all subject to his strength. Just think for a moment about what is bothering you today. What is it that concerns you? Are you in an economic crisis? Are you in a family crisis? Are you just having a bad day? Whatever you are going through, no matter how difficult, it is fleeting in comparison to the eternal power and perfection and love and justice and mercy and grace of our God. If God is mightier than the roaring flood or the crashing waves, he is greater than our temporary concerns. Have faith in the sovereign of the universe. I love the phrase, “your decrees are very trustworthy.” Think about that. All things that come to pass are within the counsel of the divine will. For those who are in Christ all of those things that come to pass are ultimately for our good and God’s glory. Therefore, we can trust that whatever God brings to us is for a reason. Our God reigns supreme! Absolutely nothing, not even death itself, can separate us from the wonderful love of God in Christ Jesus our lord.
