We see turmoil in the world. Do we also see the Lord who is over all?
The floods have risen up, O Lord. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves.Psalm 93:3
The world and all its powers, symbolised by floods and waves, rage against the authority of the King. We see these powerful forces at work and become unsettled.
But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these!Psalm 93:4
Whereas the waves are easy to see, the power of God is hidden from us. The Lord challenges us to believe what he has said about himself.
The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.Psalm 93:1
When we think of power, we think of people throwing weight around like bullies. The Lord however is robed in majesty; think, the fruit of the Spirit – Love, joy, peace, patience, …
If the Lord is patient in these tempestuous times, We will only see him if we receive his peace and from that peace are patient enough to see him unfold his plan with love.
