Psalm 93

Our Lord, you are King!
Majesty and power
are your royal robes.
You put the world in place,
and it will never be moved.
    You have always ruled,
and you are eternal.
The ocean is roaring, Lord!
The sea is pounding hard.
Its mighty waves are majestic,
but you are more majestic,
and you rule over all.
Your decisions are firm,
and your temple will always
be beautiful and holy. (CEV)
 
            Soon it will be the Ascension of our Lord (Thursday) and the church will celebrate the grand redemptive event of Jesus ascending to heaven from earth after his resurrection.  So, then, today’s psalm is quite apropos to the season.  Jesus is our King.  Since Christ is the rightful ruler of the universe, nothing will move him; he will not be swayed by any earthly power of humanity or of nature.  When God decrees something, it will happen.
 
            Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  His kingdom is eternal.  His grace is limitless.  His decisions cannot be compromised.  Let us praise God with heartfelt thanksgiving because of his character, power, and wisdom.  We can never be reminded too much that God is in control and mightier than anything in heaven or on earth.  Let’s put today’s worries and situations in their proper perspective in light of Christ’s benevolent rule.
 

 

            Mighty God, you rule the nations and everything in all creation.  You are beautiful and holy and I worship you.  Help me to always put my life’s circumstances in your hands so that I might confidently trust in your power to save, heal, and thrive.  Amen.
