Psalms 95, 97-99
I have never lived in a country ruled by a king. So the concept of God’s kingship requires a little thought for me. What is it like to be under total rule of another? What’s it like knowing everything I think is mine really belongs to the one on the throne, to do with as he wills. What is it like to not be in charge of my life?
The psalms I read today refer to God as King several times. Here is what spoke to me as I consider my King:
The Lord reigns. Let the earth rejoice. Let the people tremble. The strength of the King loves justice. Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord. He is exalted far above all gods. For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods.
Today is Sunday. It’s fitting that as I enter God’s house to worship Him this morning I have these words on my lips:
O come, let us sing of joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. (95:1-2)
What a privilege we have of worshiping the King of Kings, our Lord of Lords, our Creator, our Savior.
